#SolennBeauty: Makeup Tutorial on the Basics of Foundation & Contouring

12 months ago by Solenn

Some of you may know (or don’t know) that I studied makeup professionally in Paris. I actually started in showbiz as a makeup artist, and until today, I still do my close friends’ makeup for their weddings and other very special occasions. And most of the time during taping or shoots, I do my own makeup and hair. It’s just easier for me that way. I mean, I’ve had this face for almost 32 years, so I’m pretty sure what kind of magic it needs. Lol.

This is the first-ever makeup tutorial that I produced for you guys, and I decided to talk about how to apply foundation, because any amazing makeup look always needs a very good base. I’ll also share with you some tips on contouring and highlighting that are easy enough to do every day. When I’m wearing makeup, I can’t skip contouring and highlighting. These makeup techniques can make you look like you’ve lost weight even if you haven’t. Who doesn’t want that, right? Hahaha. In the tutorial, you’ll see that I have a longish face so I sculpt my face a certain way.

Watch my video first and check out my guides and notes below to see how you can do proper contouring and highlighting for your face shape!
