Highlighting and Contouring are methods used to define facial and body features. Highlighting will help enhance the features you want to be seen and make them "appear forward". Contouring helps give depth and recede features. Blending is the "art" of makeup application. I think this is one of the things that makes one truly a makeup artist. This assignment was a challenge for me because one, I used a model with skin tone and features that I am not accustomed to and second because I found myself trying to place the contouring and highlighting in places that I so often saw on "You Tube" videos. I am realizing that I have learned some bad techniques and so it was a challenge for me to "work against" what I have seen for so long. Before doing the assignment, I applied primer and foundation to my model. At first, it was hard for me to figure out her tone because I have been use to practicing on people with cooler undertones. Her tone was sort of peachy and red and yellow so I choose a neutral foundation shade for her base color.
