How to contour like a pro

With the contouring craze still going strong, I felt compelled to write up a “how to guide” for those of you that yet to master the art. Contouring is when you use a matte powder, cream or pencil approximately 2 - 3 shades darker than your natural skin tone to define or reshape certain areas of your face e.g. cheekbones, forehead, chin and the most popular slimming the nose. Highlighting generally works the opposite way of contouring, you use a shade approx. 2 – 3 shades lighter than your skin tone to emphasize areas of your face that the sunlight naturally catches. There are some great products on the market to help master this look available here. Splurge – Anastasia Beverly hills cream contour pallet Anastasia Beverly hills launched a cream contour pallet that has proven to be the best-selling, easy-to-use palette contains three highlighting and three contouring shades that work together to help you sculpt, define, and enhance your natural features. Create the illusion of higher cheekbones, a smaller forehead, a softer jawline, or a slimmer nose with these smooth, velvety formulas that blend seamlessly while imparting a subtle, dewy sheen. Steal – LA Girl Cosmetics HD Pro concealers The HD Concealers have been a massive hit with international make-up artists around the world. The crease-resistant, opaque coverage in a creamy yet lightweight texture. The long-wearing formula camouflages darkness under the eyes, redness and skin imperfections.
