I teamed up with Look TV to bring you Makeup Academy, with quick and easy tutorials via my favorite medium – video! Okay, so video is actually my least favorite; who likes to watch and/or hear themselves talk? Hint: not me.  So please, go easy on me!

I wanted to start with this video on basic contouring and highlighting because it’s one of my most frequent requests. While you can completely transform your features with contouring, for this video, I simply demonstrated how to enhance them and bring out your bone structure. Watch the video to see how easy it is.

Note: Use a matte powder or cream for contouring – anything with shimmer will reflect light and make the area pop instead of recede (and you want the latter). Your highlight, however, can be shimmery or matte. I actually prefer to use matte on my forehead and chin, and usually go for subtle shimmer on my cheekbones and brow bone.
