How to Camouflage & highlighting Your face with makeup.

 

 

10.1 How does camouflage and highlighting makeup work?

 

First off you have to know that highlighting accentuates a feature meaning you want to make it more prominent and Seen. Second you have to know that camouflage/ contouring makeup hides anything you don’t want anyone to see. Thus creating the illusion that it does not exist.

 

10.2 How do I know what to use for camouflage and highlighting makeup?

 

To highlight:

Use 2 foundation shades lighter than your normal foundation colour.

 

To camouflage/contouring:

Use 2 foundation shades darker than your normal foundation colour.


Purchase a shimmery high lighter that is a shade or two lighter than your natural skin tone. This can be blush, bronzer, foundation or any kind of powder that isn’t sheer. Purchase some matte camouflage that is a shade or two darker than your natural skin tone. Again, this can be a blush, bronzer, foundation or any kind of powder that isn’t sheer. 

 

Take a good long look in the mirror and assess your facial features. The key here is finding a way to balance out your face: our seemingly magical sense of beauty is really all about symmetry. An excessively large forehead, a protruding nasal bridge or a receding chin can distract from an otherwise lovely face.
