When it’s time to deck up with makeup, you want to make sure your base looks as perfect as possible. While base makeup can be something as simple as a tinted moisturiser, if you want a truly professional finish, then contour makeup is something you cannot skip. For one, contour makeup can complement and enhance every face shape, and there are a lot of other benefits that contour makeup can offer. Indeed, the world of contour makeup is a vast and wonderful one. Find out all about contour makeup and how to make it work for you.
Contour makeup can help enhance your facial bone structure and create depth. Contouring makes use of shadowing and highlighting to define and shape your features in the most flattering of ways. It also helps your foundation look more skin-like and helps make it look more blended.
To contour your face, it is best to invest in a contour palette. Contour palettes can be in cream or powder formulas, and they usually offer a highlighter shade along with a deep brown contour shade. Contour sticks are also a great option as they allow you to strategically place the contour pigment along with your facial features.
Brushes are the best to apply and then blend in contour products seamlessly, but you can also use a beauty blender to blend in your contour pigment, once placed. If you like, you could first apply the contour products with a brush, blend them slightly, and then use a damp beauty blender for an extra seamless effect.
