Beginner’s Guide to Bronzing, Highlighting & Contouring

Here’s a quick video by Beauty Expert, Nur, from HSN to show you the theory behind Bronzing, Highlighting & Contouring as well as how & where to apply them.

As she first stated – these tricks can be a blessing or curse. It is all about how they are applied since they should ultimately enhance your features & add dimension.

 1. Use Contouring to create shadows.

Done right – this can give the illusion of a slimmer face/nose & it will emphasize the cheekbones.

2. Highlight what you want to lift.

This can brighten your eyes & lift areas around your mouth & brow bone. I also love using a cream highlighter on my collar bones.

3. Bronze for a sun kissed look.

I personally prefer bronzer with a hint of shimmer but even a matte bronzer can liven up your skin. Just be careful to choose the right shade & not to apply too much.

This weekend was Super Bowl mania in the NYC/NJ area. The “Big Ticket” most people were trying to score actually wasn’t to Sunday’s game BUT to all the exciting  pre Super Bowl concerts and parties happening all weekend long.

On Friday, January 31 – JBL hosted a private concert at the Beacon Theatre which featured Maroon 5.

The only way to score tickets to this event was to win in the sweepstakes held for customers or to be a JBL or Harman client, employee or family member.
