Have you ever found contouring hard and complicated? But it actually isn’t! Instead, it is the magical means to allow your gorgeous facial features to stand out. By following the contouring tips and hacks below, every girl can be the master of contouring!
The Right Way
We all long for a perfect nose shape. To make your nose straighter and thinner, contouring is your savior. Apply contouring powder that is one shade darker than your natural skin tone on your nose tip and sides. If you have no idea which product you should use, give Dolce & Gabbana The Bronzer Glow Bronzing Powder a try. Its delicate formulation delivers a natural, sun-kissed glow that can be used to contour and define features, which is ideal for creating a warm glow or a defined, sculpted look.
A little contour underneath your cheekbones can significantly make a difference for a slimmer-looking face. Starting from your ears and ending in the middle of your cheeks, apply bronzing powder with a soft, angled brush. At this moment, the color might look quite strong, but stay calm! We still have one more step to go. Those areas are where we need to blend. Use your fingers or a brush and blend the line upwards. NARS Bronzing Powder is definitely the ideal masterpiece to sharpen your cheekbones. Diffused powders with golden shimmer creates an all-over warmth or contour for the face, perfect for enhancing your cheekbones.
Contouring hairline can definitely make your face look smaller! If you have thin hair or lack hair, this little trick can help cover those areas to create a volumized look for your hair. Carita Progressif Anti-Age Solaire Protecting and Bronzing Sun Powder SPF10 offers a mosaic of three shades with a matte and iridescent finish that matches any skin tones for a sculpted look.
Who doesn’t want a defined jawline? Every girl desires to look as gorgeous as those models with beautiful facial features. If you have a square-shaped face like me, don’t despair though. There are tons of wonderful products out there that can reshape our face without surgical procedures! I’ve been using Benefit Hoola for years and it is always my no.1 bronzer! Lightly brush this soft bronzing powder across your jawline or anywhere you would love to create shadow in order to get that perfect oval look. Let’s not waste time and begin contouring now! Or you will never know you could have such a defined, perfect look!
P.S. Do not forget to contour the neck to make it look seamless and natural. If you see any harsh lines on your face, blend them all until they look soft and subtle.
The Right Shade & Texture
Choose a color that is 1-2 shades darker than your skin tone. Cream, stick or powder formula does a good job. Powder is easier to work with, especially for beginners. Cream can create a much detailed sculpted look. Contour stick, the most convenient one, is for those who are too lazy to contour in the bustling morning!
