We have all looked how different a face can be before and after contouring has kicked in. What is more, celebrities are all about the contouring. When it comes to a beautifully beat and symmetric face, most makeup masters have relied on contouring, an application technique that enhances one’s bone structure for a thinner and more defined look. Let’s take Kim Kardashian, Lindsay Lohan, Christina Aguilera, Victoria Beckham for examples. The mysterious magic that gives every celebrity fabulous bone structure is actually an attainable trick that brings out your best features while diminishing your least favourite. That makes it a fundamental technique for makeup novices and experts alike, whether you favour the no-makeup look or go for a more glammed-up face. This is why we have prepared the ultimate guide to contouring – a simple tutorial on how you can add some definition and dimension to you face using highlighter and contouring powder.
Step 1: Starting with the contouring of the cheeks, pull your cheeks in and start applying the contouring powder using an angled fluffy brush under your cheekbone.
Step 2: Next, with the same brush, sweep some of the product under the jaw line starting from under the chin and going towards the jawbone.
Step 3: With the highlighting, apply the product on the cheekbone and along the bridge of the nose using your finger. Just pat it in till it blends to add instant definition. Especially for people of a certain age, you will have maybe a little bit of a line down here and if you soften it with powder it really helps to finish it.
Step 4: It is very important to blend until there are no visible lines or edges. Use a fluffy brush to blend the products seamlessly into skin so the effect is soft and flawless
