Contouring and highlighting your face makes your skin glow, helps minimize or maximize facial features and gives you that finished sheen you see in magazines. Fantastic, right? Here are the products you need to achieve a flawless look.


Bronzer should enhance your complexion so pick something that compliments the natural pigments in your skin. If you have warm undertones, opt for something with a peach base. If you have cooler undertones, pick an earth-colored bronzer.

If you have a cool skin tone, go with a highlighter that is both light and iridescent. If you have a warmer skin tone—stick with a highlighter with a warmer undertone.

Pinch your cheeks and take note of the color they turn right after—whatever shade you see should be reminiscent of the blush you decide to use. Still not sure? Go with a universally flattering apricot or rosy hue.

literally the best.
