The art of contour is creating light and dark areas (usually 2 shades lighter and 2 shades darker than you skin tone) to sculpt and shape the face in an attractive way. I find sometimes contour can look quite obvious or dirty, so it is very important to blend the contour effectively, therefore beauty enhancement looks as natural as possible.
There are 5 main areas of your face that are key to perfecting the contour look. Your forehead beginning at the hairline you should begin with a dark tone gradually getting lighter until it is highlighted above the eyebrows.
Your nose should have a thin line of highlight up the middle with two small darker lines at each side to indicate a slim nose.
Your cheeks are the most important part especially if you want to cheat those model cheekbones. The upper cheekbone should always be highlighted. And the lower part of your cheek should include dark and light tones to give you that sculpted look.
Your chin will benefit from classic oval highlight extending nearly the length of your puckered lips.
