So recently I've been using liquid products to contour and highlight. Cream contours are on the rise every brand is putting their version out but you accomplish the same effect with drugstore products from foundations to concealers. So today I'm using the Maybelline Fit Me foundation to contour and the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind concealer to highlight.
In this section of pictures Im just contouring. I'm using a pointed synthetic brush to apply to foundation in the areas I want to be darker. I'm also using the Matte and Poreless formula of foundation not sure it makes a difference but I wanted to try it out. I'm taking a tapered Kabuki foundation brush to blend the lines. When I blend the cheeks I always blend up and not down. You can use your finger to blend the nose if you want.
In this set of pictures Im using the applicator on the Age Rewind Concealer. The shade is "Neutralizer" it's a yellow shade. Then I used a seperate Kabuki brush to blend that out. I used the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush but you can use what ever you like.
Then I apply my foundation as normal. This is a very subtle contour and highlight so since I like mine a little more dramatic I still powder contour over it. So really for me this acts as a base for a more dramatic contour. You can also you the Chanel Bronze Universail cream bronzer to get the same subtle effect if you want.
I'm a makeup and skincare lover. I have always enjoyed creating looks but I love to help people with product knowledge and application even more. I've been able to do these things because God has seen fit to bless me with the opportunity.
