So what is Contouring?
Contouring is adding more definition or shape to your face by using a foundation/powder at least two shades darker than your complexion. It gives off a more chiseled and slimmer effect of your face.

And what is Highlighting?
Highlighting is when you enhance the parts of your face that is hit by natural light with a concealer one or two shades lighter than your complexion. By highlighting your face, you make it look healthier and give your face a beautiful glow.
