  1. I've gotta say it you are so freaking adorable!!!

  2. Nikkie I had to go back to this video! Being Scandinavian this is forever my struggle, I only have one contour product I truly liked, and just felt like watching this video again cos I need to try some new things with contouring. xx

  3. This vid is soooo perfect for my skintone ??

  4. Does anyone else have that problem where your face is a light/medium tone but your neck is like expired egg mayonnaise? I literally can't match any foundations because my neck is so pale! And once I find a pale enough foundation that matches my neck, it makes me look like a ghost because my face is naturally way darker!!!

  5. New Subbie here 🙂 and where is the vid for this gorgeous eye look?!

  6. No offense but you are not very pale. I'm paler then you. That aside I loved your video

  7. "i'm as white as paper" on if she is PAPER.. wtf am i…

  8. "I'm as white as paper"

  11. Anyone know what brushes she used to contour and highlight?

  12. When you realise you are more pale than Nikki ???

  14. This tutorial is GOLD. So many priceless tips for us, pale ones. You're the best, Nikkie. We love you ❤

  15. She always sounds like she can't breathe

  16. Anyone know what foundation she was using ??

  17. yes! this pasty bitch needed this

  18. People say I'm sooo white and pale but I'm not even close to Nikkie's skintone lmaoo

  19. I'm pretty much the exact opposite of pale (I'm Black :P) but this was still pretty informative for me too 🙂

  20. lol when my face looks really dirty from contour now I know.. now I know

  21. I love this video! I never contour because when I tried it before I would look, as you say, just dirty. But then without contouring I just look washed out and I too have a very round face so it doesn't help at all. Your tips are amazing! thank you!

  22. What foundation and concealer did you use?✨

  23. What brand CC cream did the use ??

  24. I can contour with your foundation

  25. Atleast you don't look dead
    People ask me if I'm sick all the time because I'm so pale.
    When I give blood they think I'm going to pass out

  26. Is it just me, or is she especially McFreakin gorgeous in this video? Like more than normal? Hmm

  27. I love this video because its so hard for people with our skin tone , but it would be nice if you updated this

  28. This was more helpful than google?❤

  29. Updated tutorial on this ?? how about for fair skin tones

  30. Any cool contour drugstore suggestions?

  31. How do you feel about the ABS Contour Pallete in light? Just ordered it and dying to try the banana colour.

  32. i think my face shape is very close to yours. Thanks for the helpful tips!

  33. My skin is the same shade than my white clothes, you are not as pale as there can be
