Summer trend alert: colour contouring! Perfecting this technique with the right combination of highlighting and lowlighting shades will essentially allow you to adjust or sharpen the look of your features. Contouring your cheeks, chin and forehead will give your face a more defined appearance. As a rule, use a blush that is two shades darker than your skin tone.
Start by swirling your brush in the product and take most of it off onto the back of your hand. It’s always better to apply too little than too much. A rookie’s mistake is often applying too much product, creating a dirty and unnatural appearance.
To contour your cheeks, imagine a line from the top of your ear to the corner of your mouth. Follow this about half way and you’ll have a perfect line. Tip: Always blend upwards. Contour lightly on the temple and under the jaw line. This will visibly slim the face and make you look more angular.
