A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a post on the best products to use for contouring and highlighting. I emphasized the importance of contouring and highlighting, as it really can make or break a makeup look. Done incorrectly, and you risk making your makeup look ruddy and juvenile. Done well, and you will look like a superstar. Of course, this can be totally impractical for day-to-day use. I just contour and highlight for special occasions, because it tends to look really nice in photographs.

The guide above shows you where you should highlight and where you should contour. The dark gray lines mean "contouring" and the cream lines mean "highlighting". If you do choose to contour and highlight on a daily basis, you may opt to only contour your cheekbones and highlight the tops of your cheekbones. Do any of you like to highlight and contour? If so, what areas do you tend to highlight/contour?
