How to: Contour your face!
Q: Hey guys! so i have a question about contoring your cheekbones. how do you do that?
A: Hiya! Here is a simple step-by-step tutorial on how to contour your face successfully!
- Start with your foundation/concealer done.
- Then apply a highlighter using a small narrow stippling brush, or fan brush. Apply it to the tops of your cheekbones and up into the brow bone, creating a squashed C shape. Or if your using a liquid highlighter use your fingers!
- Then apply Blush using a blusher brush to the apples of your cheeks and going up into the hairline. Blending it out so there are no sharp edges.
- Now Grab a contour color, a matte bronzer will do or somthing slightly more taupe-y. Some brands specialize in contour colours, ie mac. Now get a little flat-top brush eg mac 130, or a pointed contouring brush or even and angled/small blush brush. Start where your ear meets your face ( a few centimeters down from your temples) and gently start circling the brush inwards towards your mouth, but obviously don’t go that far! Then re-trace your brush stroke back upwards and go up the side of your face into the temples/hair line. Also sweep the brush along your jaw line and under the chin. Realy buff the colour in to the get the most natural effect as possible!
