I'm going to tell you something, and you're going to refuse t0 believe me: Contouring is really easy. Seriously. Because even though Instagram contouring has turned into a 12-step, 20-product process that requires a degree in fine arts or the last name Kardashian to master, everyday contouring requires just a few minutes, a couple of products, and absolutely zero reality TV fame. And to prove to you just how simple a basic contour can be, we've created the world's easiest tutorial, ahead.

Chloe Metzger is the deputy beauty director at Cosmopolitan, obsessively writing about new makeup launches, the best hair products (curly girl here; whattup), and the skincare formulas that really work for every skin type (follow her on Instagram to see behind-the-scenes pics of that magazine life). She also has an unhealthy adoration for Tom Hanks and would like to please meet him one day, if you could arrange that. Thanks.
