We are continuing our journey into the world of the essential makeup palette to unlock the secrets to achieving radiant on-camera looks. By activating the power of the essential makeup palette, you can leverage the purpose and psychology of your color choices to influence your viewer more meaningfully. 

In my last post, I shared tips for choosing your foundation coverage and how to choose a shade of blush that best complements your skin tone. I introduced the concept of contouring your face, cheeks, lips, eyes, and brows as the secret sauce to achieving facial symmetry, proportion, and, ultimately, a more approachable look. 

In this training, I’m delving into the transformative techniques of contouring and highlighting, and what it means to be intentional about your lipstick shade.

Makeup Palette Shade #3– Cheek Contour

Contouring is an art that goes beyond mere cheek definition. It’s about restoring balance and dimension to your face, creating symmetry that beautifully translates on camera. Whether it’s a designated contour product, an eyeshadow, or even a concealer, choose a contour 1-2 shades darker than your natural skin tone. Opt for neutral taupe or latte shades for ivory and beige skin tones. And for my gorgeous ladies with black and brown skin tones, embrace warm, golden contour shades to enhance your radiance and avoid any ashy undertones.

Makeup Palette Shade #4– Highlighter

Highlighter adds a luminous radiance to your complexion and accentuates your best features giving you a sort of lit-from-within glow. Apply it strategically to the high points of your face, including your cheekbones, forehead, nose, and chin. Choosing the right highlighter shade is crucial, based on your undertone.

Highlight technique

If you have warm undertones, gold, and bronze shades will enhance your complexion beautifully. For those with cool undertones, silver, and pearly white hues will bring out your natural glow. And if you’re blessed with neutral undertones, the color wheel is your oyster! You can experiment with a variety of shades, as they all tend to complement neutral skin tones flawlessly.

Makeup Palette Shade #5– Lipstick

No makeup palette is complete without a carefully selected shade of lipstick. Lipstick is not just a color for your lips; it’s an expression, a statement of confidence and style. When choosing your lipstick shade, consider the psychological impact of your color choice. For instance, reds exude power and sophistication, while soft pinks evoke fun, femininity, and charm.
