A lot of people ask why do we apply so much makeup sometimes?
– when the face is significantly lighter than the body, we need to darken it up to match the body. However once we do, we tend to lose the dimension after applying one single foundation color. Therefore, we need to go back in with light and shadow to create a 3D appearance and restore dimension.
– we try to achieve an oval face shape, so we will need to do adjustments to the face structure by highlighting and contouring to create illusions.
– we do color correction to conceal any discoloration, redness, or blemishes
I used the smashbox contour sticks in this video for highlight and contour.
