The art of contouring

We’ve all heard of the power of contouring, but most of us have no idea how to do it.

It’s all about creating an illusion and it’s so simple – all you need to know is your face shape and the right technique for it.

Oval shape:
You don’t need to contour. Lucky you!

Heart shape:
Soften a prominent chin by blending highlighter around it and along the jawbone to balance out your face. Brush a slighter darker skin colour powder to the lower part of your cheeks.

Long shape:
To widen your face, brush blush to the apple of your cheeks and extend it out towards your ears rather than your temple. This will help create the illusion of width.

Round shape:
To make your face appear thinner, apply blusher to the apples of your cheeks. Dust a slightly darker flesh-coloured powder below your cheekbones down to the jawline and blend well.
