Contouring Experiment

I’ve never done any contouring before. I mean, I’ve done it on other people, but every time I’ve tried to do it myself it looks terrible. It’s because I’m about the color of a bar of soap compared to most people’s having some sort of skin color that isn’t best described by household items.

So I decided to watch a bunch of YouTube videos, and then spend a bunch of time trying to see what all the fuss is about.

I used the Smashbox contouring palette, ELF blush in “Twinkle Pink” and Chella “Ivory Lace” highlighter crayon over MAC Matchmaster Foundation 01. At the end I put on some mascara and a little bit of neutral eyeshadow

Didn’t turn out… too… bad…? I look so weird.

I mean good?
