Hi, this is Tricia Mann, and today we're going to be talking about makeup contouring and highlighting techniques. We're using a bronzer, which is a dark color which will create a contouring technique around the cheekbone area. Dark colors make light recede, along with an angled brush that's just going to help get that nice contour along the cheekbone area. Then, you're going to go ahead an apply it right into the cheekbone area. What this is going to do is give you a more defined cheekbone and accent Naomi's gorgeous cheekbones. You can see I'm using a circular blending motion. This is actually going to give you the most natural look. Now, we're going to talk about highlighting. I'm using a highlighting powder which is a light shimmer, and I'm going to use this around the eye area, and what this is going to do as you apply it to that browbone area, it's going to really help that area to pop. You can actually use a little bit on the bridge of the nose if you want to, and in the inner corner of the eyes to brighten up the eye area. You can also make your nose look smaller by using a little bit of powder on the sides of the nose, just a very small amount. And that's makeup highlighting and contouring techniques.
