Contour, how and why?
What is contouring? Contouring is the illusion of making your face appear smaller or fuller through makeup ! Making your face slimmer in an instant: who wouldn't want that!? Create a beautiful jawline, cheekbones or even narrower nose with makeup!
Apply a primer of your choice and spread it well from your entire face. When this step is complete, you can apply your favorite foundation with a makeup sponge or foundation brush . Also apply concealer to hide blemishes or red spots.
Which products do you need for contouring? With a contour powder or contour cream you will shape your face, everyone does this in their own way! You can make your face look very slim or a bit fuller. Do you want to go for a slightly fuller and rounder face? Keep the contour on the cheek very low just below the cheekbone. You can blend this with a make-up sponge or contour brush.
Do you want a slimmer face? Then you can place the contour with the dark complexion a little higher than your cheekbones. This look is of course not complete without a beautiful blush , which you apply to the apples of your cheeks.
