ELLE Beauty School Live with YSL: Hi-Def Contouring

The most useful beauty basic


This content has been created in collaboration with YSL Beauté.

Yes contouring still is the most popular option, and it's because it chisels your face subtly (if done like this), and makes the perfect base for an amazing lip or eye on top. You need more coverage for this one, so apply more foundation (as a guide, fill the 'Y' in the YSL brush), then stripe it onto the skin and blend in. Contouring is about accentuating the highlights and shadows on your skin in the right places, as we show you here. It makes the perfect day look in itself, but add a beautiful lip and some lashes for an evening out.
