I used MAC’s creme base in ‘Contour’ – this is a dark brown colour, I used it to contour the whole face paying particular attention to the cheek bones. To the naked eye, and in colour photography this looks quite unsightly, so its really important to check with the photographer that the photos wont end up in colour. You can also use tape or a piece of card along the cheekbone to create a really sharp line.
For everywhere you contour, you should highlight above to create maximum definition – for example, contour using a dark colour on the temple and under the cheekbone and then use a lighter colour on the cheekbone itself. You can use a highlighter for this, or try a lighter foundation, a creamy concealer or a greasepaint in beige or white – depending on how much contrast you want.
Make sure you really pay attention to the brows, as any gaps will show up. A strong, beautiful brow always looks amazing in B&W.
I also used a Kevin Murphy Colour bug in white to give some cool streaks to the hair.
