It is not very easy to learn to contour but when you do it will be like magic. You can completely change your look. Here are the steps for a naturally glamorous contour. Before you start applying it make sure that you have enough time to do it. Contouring is more appropriate for an evening event, a glamorous one. So, here is how to do it:
- The first thing you need to do before applying any foundation is to put some moisturizing face cream. This way your skin won’t get dry because of the foundation.
- Then using a concealer brush apply a cream foundation in medium tone color to highlight. Apply it not all over your face but on certain parts like on the center on your forehead following the bone, in the center of your nose again following the bone, on your cheek bones, and on your jaw bone.
- Then apply the next cream foundation tone. Use a much darker one because this will be the centerpiece of your contouring makeup. Again using a contouring brush apply the foundation on certain parts: on the end of your forehead where your hair begins, just draw a line that follows the forehead; apply it on your cheek bones but just draw a line highlighting the place where you want your cheekbones to be; apply it on your nose as well, around the first layer of foundation you applied in the center of your nose; and do not forget to apply it on your jaw bone.
- After doing this use a blending brush and blend, blend, blend. Make sure that you blend it very well because there should not be any sharp lines. If you look at picture 4, you will see the difference, the left half of the face shows how it looks when it is blended well, and the right one is not blended at all.
Now you are done with contouring. To finish the look apply eyeshadows, mascara, lipstick and of course bronzer to highlight your cheeks. And you are ready for a party.
