Here I've over-exaggerated my contouring technique, pre-blending, so you can really see the placement. 


Why Contouring 

I mean, really, why go through the extra steps of contouring?

Contouring is going to give you a sculpted and lifted look. It will add dimension and depth, and it creates and accentuates your bone structure. It's a really pretty, and polished look. 

Let's take it Step by Step

  1. Apply contour to the base of your hairline, at your forehead, and then you're then going to blend it and soften it into your hairline.

  2. Then, apply contour on your jawline for definition. You want to blend it downwards into your neck and blend very well on the edges.

  3. Place your contour in the hollow of your cheekbones, and when you blend it out, blend upwards (this is key) for the most part. Blending upward is going to give you lift. We like lift.contour cheeks
  4. Contouring will help slim your nose. Place it on the outer edges, going up towards the inner eye and on the tip. Blend really well.
