Contoured cheeks and glowing skin add that extra something to a typical, everyday makeup look. A little highlighter can give you that celebrity glow and a little extra bronzer will give you that chiseled, model face that Kim Kardashian loves to rock. Check out our tips and our gallery of our top 15 highlighters and bronzers!
How To Contour — Get Golden Like Kim Kardashian
Add a little sparkle to your makeup routine with highlighter. A light dusting of highlighter on the top of the apples of your cheeks will make your skin look more radiant and will make you look more awake!
Try Urban Decay ‘Naked Flushed’ Bronzer, Highlighter & Blush Palette. Take a bit of the lightest color on a fan brush, and gently sweep this highlighter right above where you would apply blush. What’s great about this palette is that it has bronzer, highlighter, and blush in one, so you can make customized colors by mixing the three together.
Don’t put highlighter too close to your under eye area as this can help highlight, or pinpoint, any under eye darkness! Also, be careful not to use too much highlighter. You want to avoid looking like a disco ball! Brush a translucent powder on top if you need to soften.
Bronze It Up Like Jennifer Lopez
Bronzer adds a touch of color to the face and warms up any makeup look. But if you’re looking for a little something more from your bronzer and want to try contouring your face to get more defined cheekbones, check out our tips!
For contouring the face, you should go for a matte bronzer, like the Topshop Bronzer in ‘Sandcastle.’ Use an angled brush and start by deepening your temples. After that, find your cheekbones with a finger and apply bronzer directly under your cheekbones in a slant. Lastly, bronze up under the chin — and you will have a structured, contoured face.
