Tip to Contour Your Face

Contouring face seems to be a trial to many. Truthfully speaking, how many of you can really contour your face? Not too many can proudly say they know how to.

But, the truth is, contouring your face is nothing different!

You would just have to know what suits you and what does not, and how to go about it. You would need two shades of foundation for it, one which would be slightly darker than your skin tone, and one which is slightly lighter than your skin tone.

To contour face, remember, the first thing that you must find out is going to be the places which are in shadow.

Your forehead, cheekbones, nose, upper lip chin are places which are naturally highlighted, so these are the places which would have a lighter foundation.

The darker foundation will go on places which are naturally on shade, like under your cheekbones, sides of your nose, sides of your forehead, side of your face. Mark these areas out and apply dark and light foundation accordingly. Use a foundation that can be blended well.

Using fingers for blending is not a bad idea, but for contouring it would be a good idea to use a good duo fiber brush or a small foundation brush.

A smaller brush gives better control over your contouring, and blend away to make sure that the dark and light seamlessly get blended, but they maintain their individual places.

After blending the two in, check your face for any patchy skin which might look dry. If it does, you can apply moisturizer to fix it, and blend further.

We generally use a sculpting cream, or a combination of lighter and darker cream foundation, but this can be actually done with a number of combinations. Just be careful what you choose and it will be fine.
