Contouring





contouring can make your face look slimmer & can draw emphasis to those gorgeous cheekbones.

first off... choose a foundation or powder that is up to two shades darker than your skin tone..


i have two the left one is MAC mineralize skin finish natural in “medium deep”
i use this for my night look

on the right is MAC mineralize skin finish natural in “medium dark” for my day look

the difference is subtle when u look at it.. but they are very pigmented so a little shows up a lot.


they key to contouring is BLENDING ! i use my MAC 168 large angled contour brush.
CHEEKS

first start with a little dash of color on ur brush

then suck in your cheeks

shade in with the widest part of the brush in the hollow part of your cheek toward your hairline

for my nighttime look i add a dot of the darker color closer to my hairline

NOSE

i have an wide asian nose :( that unfortunately doesn’t come to a point so i slim it by shading either side of it starting at the bridge to the nostrils.

I use my MAC 224 brush for this
