About This Quiz

The beauty and makeup world is filled with all kinds of techniques that will help to make anyone look fabulous. Sure, there are fancy words like "baking," "draping," "strobing" and "stippling," but today, we're going to focus on one of the most trendy techniques: highlighting and contouring. 

Popular with celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Bella Hadid and Elsa Hosk, contouring one's face involves the use of creams, powders and specific makeup brushes to bring out certain features. Highlighter (which is very light in color) is meant to add some subtle shine to certain areas (hence, "highlighting" these features). It's also typically applied on the bridge of the nose, cheekbones, brow bones and the center of the chin (among other areas). Now contour, on the other hand, is meant to add some illusion to your face. It can make your facial features appear slimmer, which may accentuate your cheekbones, chin and eyebrows. This typically involves the use of a darker shade of foundation, bronzer or a specific shade from a contouring kit. Contouring shades are usually applied to the outer areas of the face, like the forehead edges, lower cheekbones and lower jawline. Once the highlighter and contouring colors are blended in together, you'll have a gorgeous glow that rivals any Kardashian. So, if you're curious about which contouring kit matches your stylish personality, then it's time to take our beauty quiz now!
