Foundation: How I Contour/Highlight

I really do not know why I put these pictures up of me, I look ridiculous. However, I always wondered how girls would do this before and learned from watching them, so I hope this helps. I was in a rush to get ready which is why it is pretty messy, but you should get the idea :) Enjoy me looking crazy!!!

First start of with a primer. I have being loving this for a summer "glow". (Please excuse my awful nails- they need to be painted!)

Right now my skin is a little broken out so I have been putting down a thin base of foundation before I contour/highlight.

 To make sure my foundation is thin, I use a beauty blender.
This is what I use to contour.

This is what I use to cover up dark circles under my eyes. I do not use this to highlight, I use another concealer by Tarte that I will have a picture of in the end of this post.

This is the brush I use to highlight, I use a smaller concealer brush for my contour.
Once you look like you have crazy face paint....

You are ready to blend.

This the brush I use.

 I start with my contour and work it in very small circles, making sure to blend into my hairline.
Once I have blended everything together, I add a cream blush.

Now I set with powders.

 Sorry for the creepy faces.
