What It Is:

The Italian term, Chiaro-scuro (chiaro=light, scuro=dark), is the use of contrasting areas of light & dark in art. In makeup, this is often referred to as contouring & highlighting. Contouring is used to create shadows and make features recede or appear smaller, while highlighting is used to accentuate and bring light to features. These techniques are often used to define, enhance, and/or to give the  a more “three-dimensional appearance” to the face and/or body.
