It’s not so easy to contour your face. You should have some skills and a lot of practice. But to follow the right path in contouring your face you should take in consideration these five key rules:
- Never use shimmer
You should aim for “healthy glow” and many of the bronzers you will find contain shimmer or sparkle. This is the opposite of what you should look for in a contouring product. Choose only matte powder or cream and save the shimmer only for your cheeks.
- Avoid too much warmth
The basic rule here is to avoid any colors that are too brown or red. Keep up with something that match your skin tone.[ads]
- Make sure to blend edges
You can use an angled brush or a sponge, but be sure to blend properly.
- Don’t forget to highlight
If you contour you must highlight. It helps to create the balance between depth and lightness.
- Check yourself in natural light
Sometimes the light at your bathroom can be tricky and lie your eye. Go outside with a hand mirror and check if everything is properly blended to protect yourself from a potential shock later.
