I hope you don’t automatically think “Kim Kardashian” when you think of contouring because it doesn’t always have to be so strong and chiseled!
I’ve been doing a fast and simple everyday contour look for a long time, and thought I’d show you how in this quick video tutorial. Holiday season is upon us, and if you are planning on having your family photos taken, or just taking more photos than usual, contouring is a great way to give your face a bit of dimension that can be a game changer in a photo.
I started with my makeup finished save lipstick, contour and blush.
I swept the contour shade along the lower part of my cheekbone, in the hollow of my cheeks should I have made a fish face.
I swept the brush up along my temple and outside of my forehead, and then finished along the under part of my jawline. Imagine drawing a number 3 on your face, if you will.
The end result gave my face not only warmth, but also a bit of definition and some angles. The area where I see the most difference is when I contour along my jawline. It keeps my chin from blending into my neck, especially in photos. I never skip this part when I’m contouring!
You can always add more contour shade, and keep in mind you’ll add a bit of color to your face with blush as well, so start with a light hand. Sweep back and forth plenty of times to make sure you aren’t left with lines on your face!
