Contouring with Ulta

Contouring with Ulta
I'll be the first to tell you that I'm not the best when it comes to contouring. I can bronze up my face without a problem, but defining and creating shadows doesn't come naturally for me. Contouring is one of the biggest trends of 2015, so when Ulta reached out to me about creating a video about one of their five spring obsessions I knew that I wanted to learn how to contour my face. Angie, one of the prestige brand managers in San Diego, guided me along my contour journey and showed me how to contour with both cream and powder products. Let's just say that I'm no longer intimidated by a little contouring.

Here's a quick and simple video explaining how Angie highlighted and contoured my face. Angie was incredibly helpful and knowledgable. I loved getting to talk about beauty products and techniques with another huge beauty lover.

PS. This was my mom's first time helping me record a video so the angle was a bit weird. She's still trying to learn how to be my little blogging assistant. :-)

The Ulta store that I went to is the newest one in San Diego county, it had literally just opened up a few days before I went up to film my video. I really enjoyed the layout of the store, as well as the lovely staff.

I want to give a huge thank you to Ulta, Angie, and the staff at the store that I went to. I had an incredible time there and I was obsessed the way my makeup looked.
