ABOUT THIS COURSE

Learn the latest tips and techniques and create a flawless face through highlighting and contouring - achieve whatever look you want


Learn how to highlight and contourjust like the pros!

Highlighting and contouring aren’t just fancy techniques used by celebrities and professional makeup artists – they’re an absolute MUST for any makeup fan.

Contouring will sculpt, slim and define your face, so you can get the look you want without having to permanently alter your features.

Whereas highlighting brings out your best features by drawing attention to them using light. Who needs plastic surgery when you can get the same effect using contouring makeup? You can play with application, products, and shapes to achieve various looks – from soft and natural to dramatic evening makeup.

Using a mix of lessons and video tutorials, we’ll show you the latest tips and techniques for creating a flawless face for yourself or your clients!
