When applied right, contouring can define your cheekbones and jaw line, reduce the look of a double chin, minimize a larger nose, and lift sagging eyes. It’s basically using makeup to highlight and accentuate your features.
Take a look at the picture above as a guideline as to where to apply the contour ( brownis h) and highlighting ( whitish ) colors. Use a brush, sponge or your fingers but its recommended to use a brush for powder contouring and a sponge for cream contouring. Blend the lines of color into the skin making sure there are no harsh lines or obvious streaks of color. The skin should look slight shaded or highlighted not as if there is an obvious color applied to the skin.
It just takes a little practice to figure out how much contouring your face needs and to make sure everything is naturally blended into the skin. Contouring and highlighting look best under indirect or “evening” lighting so if you are going somewhere really bright keep it simple or simply just skip it.
