Like I said before cream contouring is huge right now, I'm going to be showing you different ways of contouring. There isn't really a universal way to contour that absolutely works for every face shape. There are general rules that are good guidelines but depending on your face shape you may need more or less. So what I like to do is look at the face to see what I need to be smaller, or what I want to bring out more. If I'm working on a client I ask them if there is anything they don't like about the structure of their face or anything they would like to bring out more and make more prominent.
I love contouring it's my favorite part of makeup. Its what got me started watching youtube videos and doing all kinds of research on different techniques. I love watching Kandee Johnson and Wayne Goss for contouring tips and tutorials they are the best in my opinion so if you have time definitely go look them up.
So on to the step by step stuff. The first picture is only foundation. The second picture is the placement for contouring, this I done for a more oval shape. Like Adriana Lima kinda. She has very youthful structure. So I didn't make the jaw bone more prominent like I normally do. The highlighting placement which is the bottom left picture, is very heavy. You don't have to do it this heavy but I wanted a lot of light hitting the area. I blended all this out with a Beauty Blender and then set it with contour and highlight powders again with a Beauty Blender because it does the best job at blending. With my dry skin powder clings to my dry patches especially applied with a brush so a Beauty Blender sponge helps that alot.
Next up is going to be contouring for a strong jaw line and more square face. So stay tuned for that. We're almost at 10K guys!!
