About

Learn how to highlight and contour just 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!

This course may be contouring for beginners, but by the end you’ll be an expert!
