A bright complexion is key to bridal makeup. One of the most used technique is using contour and highlight to enhance your best features. Follow these tips to get a flawless look. Before you begin: - Make sure your face is cleaned and moisturized. - Have a concealer that's 2 to 3 times lighter than your skin tone. HIGHLIGHT (1 )Start off by applying a layer of foundation or tinted moisturize on face. Using a foundation brush and a cream concealer, apply concealer under your eyes. (2)The apply it down the sides of the nose and brushed back and upward toward the hairline. (3) Using the same concealer, highlight the center of the forehead and down the bridge of the nose, upper lip, center of the chin and on your brow bone. Lastly, apply the concealer to the jawline, just under your cheekbones. CONTOUR (4) Pick a cool-toned cream concealer or foundation thats 2 to 3 shades darker than your skin tone. Taking a smaller, stiff brush or foundation brush, apply the contour cream to the hallows of your cheeks, just below your cheekbone, all the way to your hairline. (5-7) Apply the same color to your forehead near your hairline, temples, jawline, the sides of your neck and to the sides of your nose. (8) Using a wet Beauty Blender or Duo Fiber Blending Brush, blend all the contour and highlighter together until there is no more distinction between the two colors. (9) Lastly, Apply a light dusting of blush, and set all the highlight with a loose powder using a small natural bristled brush.

this is perfect for brides that want extra oomph in all the right places.
I wish I could contour. I'm horrible at blending makeup. I'd look like I was wearing camo facepaint.
I wish I was talented enough to do this myself. I would need to invest some serious time and money into this look!
I am seriously amazed every time I see makeup artists do this. Especially how they can create cheekbones out of nowhere!
@danidee Lol. Same here. I'll just stick with what i'm good at, eye makeup.
