Fresh Foundation Routine + Contouring

I wanted to share with you my updated foundation routine! This is the kind of makeup that I would wear for special occasions, or when I just want my face to look really great for photography. I don't normally contour my face on a daily basis (heck, I don't even wear foundation everyday) but it's a technique that I like to use now and then when I want to give my face more dimension. Sometimes applying a single foundation colour can make your face look a bit flat in pictures! This method will give you a more sculpted look.
