Contouring Rules by Kylie Jenner’s Make-up Artist

You will need a beauty skill or two to join the Kardashian-Jenner nation. Ariel Tejada is Kylie Jenner’s make-up artist. From the sculpted cheekbones and oversized matte lips to the sublte sunkissed skin and flushed cheeks on Kendall, if you check Ariel’s Instagram you know it works out. Find some tips below on how to get the look like a pro.

Just a quick note that the over-contouring you see on pictures should not be your aim for everyday life. Instead, try a subtle healthy looking BB cream and a touch of liquid highlighter on the high points of the cheekbones. Sometimes you should rock your natural features and enhance them.

A little bronzer goes a long way…

If you want to give you’re make-up a subtle boost, then skip the contouring creams that create a strategically placed bronzer. For everyday a little bit of a soft looking bronzer underneath the cheekbone will enhance your features and make your cheekbones look a little more plump and high.

Every face is different…

Forget the one-swipe-fits-all face charts you might have seen for contouring, Ariel says. It’s all about working with your unique bone structure. Often people mistake contouring thinking you need to go around the hairline and the cheekbone. Not everyone needs the exact method, and you should avoid contouring the entire face. That said, always contour after applying foundation and please don’t forget to blend it all in. To finish it off, set everything with translucent powder.

Highlighting and contouring by AmandaOnbeauty

I personally like to highlight with the recently launched Perricone highlighter no highlighter to achieve a flawless effect. You could also try the bronzer no bronzer which is sheer but effective. Use a combination of synthetic brush and your fingers for that “gone to the beach” dewy look.

Off course you can highlight without the contour, but the effect will be on point when adding a highlighter in the end. Highlight your T-zone, the top of your cheeks, chin and the bridge of your nose.

Happy Highlighting!
