TOP 5 MAKEUP TUTORIALS!!!
Contour like a pro!!
For a sculpted, 3 dimensional look, chisel away at your face with contour makeup. Contouring is a technique where you manipulate the eye by creating shadows with makeup slightly deeper than your natural skin tone to mimic indentations and depth to the face. Contouring may be applied in order to minimize face size, deepen the hollows of the cheeks, strengthen the jawline, or slim the nose bridge. Coupled with good highlighting technique, you can bring your favorite features forward and downplay what you don’t like, or just use the techniques to better show off your natural bone structure as it is. Blend the highlight onto features you wish to appear more prominent, and contour the areas you wish to reduce or take the focus from. It’s all a trick of the light, so play it up to your best advantage!
