The thing about makeup is that different types of lighting change how your makeup looks. The lighter and deeper colors for contouring require good blending however, the more you put on the less and less it looks like skin in real life. Photoshoot makeup, television makeup, etc is very very very different. They can control for lighting. We don't have diffused lighting shining on us all day (unless you spend all day outside on a sunny but slightly cloudy day). Girls are out here trying to get that Hollywood look for every day errands and celebrities don't even do that. For good reason.

I can get good dimension with a good foundation choice and a little blush.

that's the thing

In pics your features can be blurred out and not stand out which is why they create the 3 dimensional look with contouring & highlighting, you don't need dramatic contouring in real life, we are already in a 3 dimensional world.

It looks ridiculous imo. Like I can clearly she that bright ass line on your nose, at least try to blend. That chick Sevyn Streeter is a constant offender or this, noticeable contour, her face is so hard.

i don't see many black people with full faces of makeup on a regular basis anyway, let alone highlighting and contouring.
