Here is an easy how-to contouring and highlighting tutorial. I used Covergirl Illuminator stick for highlighting, and Iman blush stick for contouring. After blending I applied Wet n Wild bronzer to the apples of my cheeks all the way to my temples
Here is a before/during/after of our model today, and I worked on one side of the face and my student worked on the other side and did such a great job We used for the cream highlight/contour, for setting powders/bronzers/powder highlight, .
Reasons why I like this technique: The placement of the contour and highlight are correct and flatter her face shape well. colors chosen for the contour blend well into the skin. The lines for the contour are not thick and overpowering.
