Learn How to Contour With Makeup

I’m very big on skincare and all, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have a soft spot for makeup products and application techniques. So I’ve come to share with you a bit about what I know on contouring your face with makeup for a more sculpted, defined look. Unfortunately, not all of us are born with enviable bone structures that all models seem to possess. So for folks like me that fall within this group—do not fret, there are makeup techniques you can use to give yourself a more sculpted look!

First, I would like to point out that contouring makeup doesn’t only strictly mean contouring powders and bronzers. In fact, one of my favorite ways of defining my face is by using a foundation that is 2-3 shades darker than my real shade. The trick is to apply it to the sides of the face—starting on the side temple area along the hairline, down and into the hollows of the cheekbones, and then alongside the side of the face and blended down to the jawline. I’ve found that this is a great way to “slim down” the look of the face without creating too harsh of a contrast (perfect for those days when you want a more subtle, natural definition!).

For a more noticeable definition, I recommend a contouring makeup of your choice. Powder is probably one of the easier mediums to work with…just make sure you have an adequate brush to blend it in evenly!

To sculpt, you want to imagine mirror images of “3” on both sides of the face: start at the temple area, blend into the hollows of the cheekbones, and then continue under the jawline to give them more definition. You can also shorten the length of the forehead area by contouring right along the hairline!
