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!

So it’s been quite some time since I have had time to blog but I’m happy to say I’m back… WITH MY FIRST YOUTUBE VIDEO! #bigdeal
I’ve been wanting to start making Youtube videos for quite some time but it’s not only challenging but can of course can also be controversial. Regardless, I put all negativity (that can come in the future) aside and said to myself, I’m gonna do it!
My first video is a tutorial for an easy everyday make up look! This is a look that I do on a daily basis (sometimes I cut the skin enhancer and Ben Nye out of my daily routine because it can get a little ‘cakey’). Other then that, it’s a quick simple and easy look that only takes about 10 minutes. A little bit about my skin: I have pretty bad eczema as well as roseacea which has left my skin to be dry and red most days! This look helps me cover that up completely with just a few steps.
Thanks so much for all of the great feedback and questions about my makeup! I wanted to share my product details with you guys, if there’s anything I left out, feel free to let me know below in the comments!
