Simple Makeup Contouring

Benefits of contouring and highlighting:
-Gives your face an instant shape, by accentuating your cheekbones and jawline.
-Brightens your best features
-Minimizes awkward areas, making them look smaller or leaner.

 Here is a simple way to contour your face without adding a lot of extra time to your makeup routine. I like to call it the "3" method.

The purple in this picture is your darker color, or bronzer, and the blue is your highlighter.

With your bronzer make a "3" on each side of your face. The top of the "3" hitting the top of your forehead and the middle of the "3" hitting below your cheekbone. The bottom of the "3" hitting right under your jaw bone. This will make your face appear leaner and will make your cheekbones POP!.

With your highlighter,apply it on your cheekbones, nose, above your eyebrows, and chin. Only highlight areas you want to draw attention to.

Tonight's dinner is Basil Pesto Tortellini.
 I simply buy the Basil Pesto and tortellini from Costco. Cook the tortellini and some chicken. Then add your desired amount of Basil Pesto!
