Sometimes this can be using this seasons hottest new colours or a new lippie but the biggest make-up trend to to filter down to the masses is facial contouring.
What's facial contouring I hear the uneducated say?
Step inside for a quick masterclass.
Facial contouring is shading some parts of your face & highlighting other parts so that shadow & light fall appear to fall on your face. Facial contouring is fantastic as you can make your face look slimmer, your jawline not so heavy & your nose slimmer. Basically you can change your whole face if you do it correctly.

I've been contouring my face for years & no-one has ever noticed, yes, I've had comments that I look different with make-up on but who doesn't?
Contouring is normally done in these key area's; temples, hollow of cheeks, sides of nose & the jawline. Whilst highlighting is done centre of forehead, bridge of nose, above cheek bones, in between hollow of check & jawline & cupids bow.
There are a number of different products that you can use for highlighting & contouring some people use different shades of foundations to achieve this look but I would strongly advise against this unless you're the queen of blending.
