Primerito what you must learn is to differentiate the highlight of contouring. So to start, record yourself that the highlight is any product that is a shade lighter than our skin and we use to highlight or pronounce our traits, for example cheekbones, chin or forehead. This will give them light.
2. Good contouring
The contouring is any product that is a darker tone our skin because it gives the effect of hiding or deeper areas of the face such as cheeks or jowls. I say it should be a tone (maximum two) above your skin tone, because it might be obvious and the real point of the factions contouring is look natural.
Many girls think they have to buy special for technical products, but the truth is that the highlight are all powders, concealers, foundation, brightening cream, shadows or gloss that are lighter than your skin. And the contouring are all those loose or pressed powders, concealers, bronzers, foundations, shadows that are more obscuritos our skin.
