Highlight & Contour

Sculpt and shape your face solely with the power of makeup with THE ICONIC’s ever-growing selection of highlight and contour products. With a range of beloved local and international beauty brands onboard, creating a flawlessly defined complexion has never been easier.

Once the realm of runway models and makeup artists, contouring and highlighting has garnered a global legion of fans thanks to the spotlighting of leading beauty bloggers. Today, highlighting and contouring forms the backbone of many daytime and after-dark beauty looks, proving that with the right products and a little practise, even novice beauty mavens can achieve this coveted look at home.

Contouring sees you apply makeup that’s typically a shade darker than the natural skin tone, creating shadow and depth to help draw your facial structure back. Coming in both powder and cream formulas, contour makeup can be applied either over or under foundation depending on how dramatic you want the sculpting to be. Conversely, the right highlighter is typically a shade lighter than your natural skin tone, and can be used in complement to contour to help bring desired facial areas forward. Apply your highlight on the high points of the face, or anywhere you wish to define, such as the brow bone and inner corner of the eyes to open up the area.

THE ICONIC carries a range of leading makeup brands to help kickstart your contour and highlight journey, with palettes from Napoleon Perdis alongside shimmering formulas from Eye of Horus to impart a glowy, sun-kissed look. Opt for CTZN Cosmetics’ iconic GLOBALM in either clear or pearl for use-anywhere versatility and a dewy finish.
