I have tried to contour my face, does anyone have some real good pointers and products they use!?
pointers: suck in your cheeks and apply bronzer ( I use sleek or maybellines) in upward strokes stoke out the bronzer towards ur temples and on top if that use a highlighter I use smashboxs and apply on the meatier part of the cheek. if u want some color, dab on a soft pink or coral blush on the apples of ur cheeks
sorry apply bronzer on the cheek bone when u suck in
In my opinion, it's best to start off at the temple/hairline when contouring, That way you don't have a huge buildup of product just incase you mess up.
Suck in your cheeks & apply the contour powder right in the hollow of your face. It should be directly under your actual cheek bone because what you're doing is creating a fake shadow on your face.
My favorite product to contour with is ELF's matte bronze powder. It's $1 - Granted, it's powdery but it lasts so long on the face!
oh yes and search youtube, mostly depends on the shape of ur face
Its kinda of complicated to explain because of all the different face shapes and the different techniques..I've personally have always used a liquid foundation a shade darker and blended well then used a bronze powder then my blush it sounds like alot but better if you watch a video..it's all about the illusion of it all.I'm old school so I'm not sure if you would understand my info..
i personally love to contour with creams. a great way is to put a lamp over your head and angle it downward to cast a shadow on your face. this will show you where you need to contour to better shape your face since the light will cast the shadows on your face mapping it out for you
