How to: Contour, Highlight & Conceal | Kat Von D: Shade Light Palette

Hey hey heeyyy,

Since about last year, the hype of contouring has gone up a few million notches! Although the concept has been used for many years by professional makeup artists, many cosmetic brands have been making contour kits as apart of their branding technique. We started with Anastasia, then we had Makeup Forever (and many others in between) and now we have Kat Von D’s, Shade Light Palette.

Each contour kit has about 6 shades, some have 2-4. There are lighter shades to emphasis the highlighted areas and carve out your contour and there are darker shades to create the illusion of a slimmer face, cheekbones, and even creating abs or cleavage.

In today’s video, I’ve used the Shade Light Palette by Kat Von D to emphasize and carve out my features. For a list of the products, see below:

1. Bobbi Brown – Illuminating Treatment Foundation

2. Nars – Radiant Concealer in Vanilla

3. Kat Von D – The Shade Light Palette

4. Nars – Translucent Powder

5. Banana Powder

6. Nars – Albatross Highlighter

Remember to use a sponge or a beauty blender to blend everything together, if you do not have either, try a stippling brush and very lightly blend everything together in circular motions.

I hope this helped everyone who needs help with contouring!
