Watch: Deola Adebiyi gives us the skinny on highlights and contouring

We all know how hard cracking that beauty code is when you’re an outsider looking. The trends seem to change by the week and there is all this fancy terminology that we are supposed to somehow already know. So it is always a relief when a beauty blogger takes the time to break down the nitty gritty of how they get those popping looks.

After a hiatus from vlogging, beauty blogger Deola Adebiyi of OmogeMuRa recently released a new video, a beauty tutorial on How to Contour and Highlight.

Now for anyone in the know, contouring and highlighting are a very deft trick for defining facial features and drawing attention to one’s favourite face parts while distracting from others. The great ‘glow’ that everyone talks about, contouring and highlights are the way to go about it. Deola explains her reason for doing the video as such.

“I did a short poll on Twitter and asked what tutorial I should do and highlight and contour tutorial got the most votes! This tutorial is all about how to define your face, what products to use and where to place the products on the face.”

The step by step method and the very helpful explanations are what we love about the video, and the fact that the finished look on Deola Adebiyi doesn’t look too cakey or overdone. Nothing like a mininalist approach to beauty to gets our blood pumping.
