That's a rather subjective question, no one can really tell you what's too much or too less if it's your face haha. That's just my opinion, though

If you don't think it's too much it probably isn't lol. It depends on how you think it looks on you for school, a lot of people contour for school. It also depends on if your school allows makeup.

Lucky! I'm a sophmore lol. I don't think so as long as its not extremely heavy you feel? Very subtle. I'm assuming your graduating some time in spring so why not lol.

I honestly think its to much for a high schooler on a regular school day but its OK to contour on special occasions or on weekends.

I say if you want to do it then do it, it's your face so no one else should really concern themselves with how much/what makeup you're wearing.

Well it depends. When I contour I make it very light and blended like crazy. If its light I say go for it if its something you like and maybe focus on highlighting (I personally choose not to for school, I'm in college) but I think a heavy contour is a bit much for a daily basis and not to sound like a total creep but you're absolutely beautiful (like a lot) and from what I see you really don't need it!

If you want to do it then go for it! I personally only bronze my face because rarely anyone in my school wears make up (people have even asked me why I wear it and look at me kind of weird). It's all up to personal preference

I think it's perfectly fine. I would just make sure to even it out, if you do a very natural no makeup look then a noticeable contour it could look strange.

Yup, I agree - if you want to do it, then do it! You're a beautiful girl - I don't think you'd overdo it!

Go for it! Everyone wears makeup at different ages, if you're comfortable and happy with it, do it ☺️

I say do what makes you happy unless your school has a rule against it.

I do it for school, it's all up to you if you think it is or isn't

Unless your breaking rules, you should do what you want to do. Don't do what you think Will help you fit it. I always loved dramatic makeup and that's what I wore. You need to have fun in high school (and be safe) don't worry what other people think cuz everyone will have an opinion. Always make sure your comfortable with what you do!

Just do whatever makes you feel beautiful. Who cares if people think it's too much for school. It's ultimately your choice, your face, and your confidence :)

Go for it girl your gorgeous! & nobody can tell you how to do your makeup but you plus it's your senior year! 😊

No I don't think it is but like others said its very opinionated. I'm a Senior and there's days where I go all out and contor and everything ( which is all out for me lol) and there's days I just were some mascara brow gel and what ever chapstick is floting in my bag. You want to do it go right ahead and do it.

I have to agree with most of these ladies and say that you should do whatever makes you feel beautiful regardless of whether some people might think it's too much or not.
Personally, when I started learning to contour, I was so excited about it that I wanted to do it every single day. But then I felt like when I had a special occasion, I wouldn't look any different than I did at school, so I saved contouring for my special occasions. But that's just me though(:

Contouring should be unnoticeable anyways so it should be OK ;)

I do it and I think it looks fine, maybe if you contour a bit less or something if you do it a lot go for it, just make sure it looks natural :)

You do you girl who cares what other people think💁

What Alma said. I do some form of contour every day. I have a round face and I feel like I just look meaty without it. Many days I skip eye shadow and do contour, foundation, nude lip and mascara. Lots of people wear winged eyeliner every day but consider contour "too made up."

You should do what you want to do. I'm a senior as well and I do a little bit of contouring-just a bit of Bronzer to bring out my cheeks. But there are freshman at my school that go all out. It doesn't really matter. Do what makes YOU happy :)

I think.its okay to contour everyday. I do it because I have a round face which I don't like. Just do it some nobody notices it. Blend, blend, blend...

No. I do it veeeeery light handed with Tarte The Sculptor, and if you blend blend BLEND, it looks natural enough for everyday.
