Contour Lightening Technique from TIGI

Contouring with makeup has been around for a while now, but did you know that you can enhance facial structure with makeup, too? TIGI’s new Contour Lightening Technique uses three different lighter color variants to create a contouring effect, defining the shape of the hair and promoting shine. It’s how TIGI American Technical Director Richy Kandasamy created this stunning, honey-toned blend. Read on for the exclusive formula and application steps!
