This video, posted by BuzzFeed, shows people getting professionally contoured for the first time, and it's as amusing as it is illuminating. The best part has to be when the individuals got a peek at themselves before the makeup was blended in: It's kind of shocking to see your face covered in flesh-colored brushstrokes — and even more shocking to be told it's going to look good. Watching their facial expressions and hearing their flabbergasted commentary really highlights how dramatic a change contouring can be. Ultimately, though, most of their reactions to the final results were positive.
Check out the video, and let us know if you're having new thoughts about the contour process after seeing these first-timers try it out. (Buzzfeed)
