Makeup Monday: Look TV Makeup Academy




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.

Check out more of my video tutorials on Look TV  (blush, brows, and liquid liner are already up) and  don't forget to subscribe, because more are coming soon!

  3. i totally get the whole "who wants to see/hear themselves" but videos vs a bunch of pictures of how to, especially when applying make up helps out so much more! So I love your new idea ;)

  9. This is lovely! But I get very overwhelmed when dealing with more than one product - if I'm using a highlighter on my cheekbones, where do i put my blush? I tend to use NARS Orgasm for blush, so it's definitely got a bit of shimmer to it, if that helps.
