Contouring & Highlighting Your Face

Posted on   |   Comments (179)

 

Contouring is the application of makeup on your face in an attempt to define your silhouette and cause you to appear to have a slimmer face, a straighter nose, slender cheeks, more prominent cheekbones and even helps reduce the appearance of a double chin. This is a great application method for women of all facial shapes (square, round, oval, heart).

You always want to use a brown colored or tan bronzer, shadow, or product to contour with. You may use a bronzer, a powder, a liquid or a cream product.

To contour and enhance your cheekbones, suck in your cheeks just slightly, and apply a darker shade to the hollows. Begin with a small amount; don’t over due it. Apply your blush as you normally would.

To contour and to slim your nose you will want to apply the contouring shade on each side of your nose, in a very thin line, blending carefully.

If you are self-conscious about your forehead or even if you aren’t, you can apply your contouring makeup to both of your temples and blend well. This will give you forehead a slimmer look.

To contour and reduce the look of a double chin, you will want to lightly blend your contouring agent down your chin and below your neckline. Blend in well; apply more as needed.

Highlighting your face gives the opposite effect of contouring, although it also helps to further define your face, it highlights certain areas causing them to be more prominent and pronounced. Places on your face light will hit and reflect off of. You want to create a sheer, light finish. Choose a color lighter than your foundation and powder.

To highlight you will apply your highlighter straight down the center bridge of your nose in a very small line. Also apply to the apples of your cheeks.

You may also want to highlight your upper and lower brow area. Lightly, brush your highlighter over and under your brow bone, being sure to blend very well.

By following these simple steps the next time you apply your makeup, you will be able to give yourself a very polished and naturally finished look.
