HOW TO: Dramatic Contour and Highlight for REALLY Dark Skin

One of the questions I get asked the most is how I contour and highlight my dark skin. 

If you're a makeup beginner, I would suggest trying out a powder contour kit (e.g. Sleek Contour Kit) because they're really simple and easy to use. That's exactly how I started contouring and highlighting.

If, however, you're already confident with this and looking to achieve a more dramatic, Kim K effect, then this tutorial is for you!
This is the look I go for if I'm filming, taking photos or going for an event.
