Colorful Reading says:

Beautiful model. Terrible makeup I see this happen with a lot but NOT all makeup artist of different race than their client. That contour shade was too dark. especially at makeup contours them just assumed to use the darkest shade with everything in makeup. They don’t know how to color women of color including Indian, Spanish & olive tones .

Would like to learn more details on the beauty tips. Search in google as: “Blast4beauty”. There are plenty of of unknown information given here.

Maya Cell says:

She’s so pretty

Mai says:

She’s so beautiful. I don’t think I enjoyed this contouring.

Alice Cooper says:

Go ahead and blend the otherside bitch

Feline Leijon says:

She has a heart-shaped face, not oval. People with oval faces do not have defined cheekbones like her – the whole point of them being _oval_ is to have them be fuller. People with oval faces have baby cheeks.

Flower Kitten says:

I get that makeup artists want to look cool by blending while BARELY touching the face but that’s the reason the end result is UNBLENDED and awful

she is so p r e t t y my goooooooooood

rouaa imad says:

She was more beautiful without makeup

Melisa G says:

What’s the model name btw?

C.M.C.18 says:

Can we get light minimal makeup contour Sephora? This full on base, highlight, contour, blending, is way to much.
I want a contour that is light, everyday, and with NO FOUNDATION. Foundation destroysss skin.

Somala Amin says:

I was in sephora couple of times where I ask the beautician about a product and they always without a fail give me a shade way too dark for me. I don’t know why they think that makeup needs to darken ur skin. Not only me, every brown /tan person I see there getting made up, it’s always look muddy and makeup like. Somehow they think that u should see ur makeup, ideally u shouldn’t. Makeup should enhance ur natural beauty and conceal any problem. Not every one needs to contour there face, not every one needs 3 leyars of concealer under their eye. U use these if u have problem. But somehow they don’t get it.

Apple King - Doria says:

It seems like it’s not well blended… She has oval shape face but also wide forehead. But from I learned, they should’ve used matte to contour it. Correct me if I’m wrong coz I’m still learning too hahaha! I was also hoping for more professional process since it’s Sephora. She’s very pretty, love her face more before they contoured it.

Prameow Meow says:

Her face was not oval


D makeup artist is dam hot man

RaDeO says:

iam sorry but her face is not’s kind a square or diamond or maybe haeart shape but is not oval at all..anyways she is so beautiful, need no makeup at all

Harsha P says:

What proportion did u consider while deciding her forehead cheek chin highlight ratio

writerspen010 says:


deannej21 says:

The highlight color is too fair. And the contour is too muddy and dark. The product is all wrong for her skin tone. Her leans more toward heart shaped IMO.

J K says:

The model is so gorgeous ! Perfect face shape.

alexa jimenez says:

cant tell if im oval or round or just over weight lol

N Hassan says:

Model looked much better without the contour.

Benedict Cumbersnatched says:

some people just look better without contouring/heavy makeup, and I think she’s one of them

Tia says:

She looks the same as before?

Girl in Style says:

This helped me so much I love the results of my contour and highlight!

TammiBloo says:

Shade selection was awful (too dark and too light, literally no regard for her undertones. It looked like face paint) , finish was awful (why a heavy cream on textured skin??????? C’mon Sephora), blending was GROTESQUE (look at the eyebrow to nose contour for a prime example)
But the placement was okay so I appreciate being able to take that away from this tutorial. Could have been more informative on *why* you place certain higlights and contours in a particular place for an oval face shape, though.

J 2 says:

That girl is gorgeous.
