How To: Basic Contouring & Highlighting

This is one of my most requested videos so I hope you all like it! I can’t think of a better day to post it then today as Sigma is launching their Face Architecture line of brushes which are specific for contouring! There are seven brushes in this specific line… do you need all 7? No! In the video I talk about the two I personally love and then show you how to use them to do a basic contour of the face.  I say basic because contouring is really as little or as much as you’d like it to be.  If you’re wanting to learn how to do a dramatic Kim Kardashian look this video is not for you… but if you’re looking for an everyday, takes 5 minutes and looks great I got you covered!

There you have it! Easy peasy lemon squeezy!


Here and here are my two favorite brushes! What are yours? If you do decide to order don’t forget to use my discount code TEACHME10!

    Ah, I love watching your videos, Holly! We always think we know all we need to know about certain beauty techniques, then we see how different people use different tools and approaches to things and then you get a fresh, new take on it. In this case, you showcase this Sigma Face Architecture line in a way that makes it an essential — who wouldn’t want to achieve perfect highlights and contours like yours?! I had been wanting to get a more dramatic line to start off my blending and you totally showed me how I can do that with this kit. Thanks so much! Keep the awesome vids coming! xo
