View in slideshow

Contouring is the makeup technique that professionals love and DIY makeup mavens loathe. Seriously, have you ever tried to sculpt your cheeks with bronzer only to end up looking "dirty" instead? Well, no more! MAC senior artist Gina Bettelli helped us create a detailed map for contouring and highlighting for three different skin types and three different face shapes. All you have to do is print out the photo that fits with your face and follow the dotted guidelines in the mirror. Then, you can save Bettelli's product and shade recommendations for your next makeup haul. We've already outlined the lazy-girl way to contour, but this tutorial breaks it down for newbies and pros alike. We're talking Kim Kardashian-level sculpting, ladies!
