Contouring is giving shape to an area of the face and enhancing the facial structure through makeup. It's not supposed to be noticeable—just a subtle definition.
So now that we know what contouring is, how do we do it. Before we get to technique though let's come up with a quick product list. You will want two foundation shades-one a shade lighter and one a shade deeper then your skin tone. You'll also need a brush. I prefer a fan brush, it prevents you from being heavy handed with product.
Now for technique:
Take your deeper shade or bronzer and sweep it from your forehead to your cheek and down to your jawline in a "3" shape.
With your lighter shade or highlighter sweep a crescent or a "C" from your brow bone to down and across the top of your cheekbone.
Now, blend, blend, blend!
So that is basic, natural contouring. I can't wait to hear and see your contouring stories and hopefully you try out some of these tips.
