"How do I do it and not look totally made up?" "Is there a natural way to do it?" "It sound super intimidating." These are just a few questions I get about contouring and highlighting. It's gotten real intense, amirite? To answer it succinctly: yes, there is a very natural, uber easy way to contour and highlight, and you don't have to be a makeup expert to do it, either.
It's all about the right application, and having the right tools. I like using creams because they're more forgiving: if you mess up, they're easier to remove than powder! And the key is to start off light, then add more if necessary. Another suggestion? If you're worried about contour looking too stark, try using a foundation or concealer that's 2-3 shades darker than your natural skin tone. This way it won't look like it's sitting on top of your skin.
As for highlighting, I think the shade really matters here. If you have cool undertones, go with silver or pink-based shades. Warmer undertones will look great with golden shades.
