I love contour and highlighting!  It's subtle and simple, but makes such a huge impact on your overall makeup look.  The best thing about contour and highlighting is that you can sculpt and enhance your features without any drastic measures!  Just a few swoops of your brush! 

Here's a quick video of how I contour and highlight using my cream foundation by Kryolan Dermacolor palette.  You can contour with cream, liquid, or powder foundations.  If you don't need a whole palette of various colored foundations, I recommend buying 3 shades:  1 foundation 2-3 shades darker, 1 foundation 2-3 shades lighter and 1 foundation your color skin tone.
