How I Contour & Highlight..

For those of your who asked the lipstick here is "Barbara". My watch is here

If you are looking for my DAILY MAKEUP ROUTINE (includes mascara, brows, etc.) - find it here. PS. I've recently added this - my new fave mascara.

Today I made a super, super quick contour VIDEO! I did a pictorial once but people seemed to continue asking for a video so voila! Many of you are aware that I am not a makeup guru - at all! But I do enjoy answering your questions and sharing what I use so I hope this helps. We moved on Saturday and have been unpacking all day today (aside from Church) so I more or less threw this together so I apologize about the quality & lack of creativity. :) OH! And, I have so much respect for You-Tubers - I had to record that Voiceover 10x because I couldn't get all the details in quickly enough. 
Products Used:
 NARS Ita Brush (buy  it while you can - I had to wait 6mos on it!)
Anastasia Contour Kit (Havanna is the dark shade I used. Banana is the yellow shade for setting the concealer. Sand is the shimmery shade that really highlights!) *GIFT IDEA*
Cover Girl Ready Set Gorgeous in Fair (just started using it - usually use this)
Bronzing Brush - Mac 129 (nose)
Blush Brush (Mac 109)

This is not on the video but I do use THIS spray 2x in between powder and after powder for setting the look & making it look less makeup-y.

Necklaces: BaubleBar (here & here).
