How to: Contour with Foundation

Hey everyone!
I wanted to do a quick how to post on how to contour with foundation because it is requested a lot by girls who want a more natural looking contour. This is also great if you accidentally buy a foundation a few shades too dark, which happens to me a lot! 

1) Prime your face if you'd like to! I don't really prime on a daily basis, but if you do, do it!

2) Get your darker foundation (mines is a Becca Cosmetics sample) and a foundation brush (any brush you'd like) and do a few swipes around your hair line, your jaw line, in the hallows of your cheeks and the temples. Do not blend this out yet! You can also do a few swipes on the sides of your nose to slim it down. 

3) If you want to go for a more advanced route, take a lighter foundation (lighter than your skin tone) and apply it to the bridge of your nose, tip of your chin, and cheekbones to be a highlighter. Once again, just swipe it on and don't blend!

4) Then take a sheer to medium coverage foundation that is your exact skintone and apply that to the entire face blending it into the highlight and contour foundations! 

5) Continue to blend until all streaks are gone and you get a flawless finish!

So I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! If you try it out, let me know what you think and don't forget to follow this blog on bloglovin (link in the sidebar!)
