Masterclass: Contouring and Strobing
This course is perfect for those who have undertaken the Airbase Introductory Make-Up Course Stage 1 and are keen to learn more detailed techniques and tips on contouring and strobing.
Contouring is regularly used to give shape to specific areas of the face to enhance the facial structure using the skills of the make-up artist with cosmetics. It is designed to create a subtle effect rather than a dramatic change.
Strobing is used to enhance facial features using highlighting. Instead of the normal practice of contouring with a darker shade and then highlighting to create definition, the focus is exclusively on the highlighting, concentrating on the area where light hits the face to create the visual effects required.
To be proficient in contouring and strobing it is imperative to understand the bone structure of the face in order to create the best visual effect for the individual.
