Tips and Tricks to Find you contour and highlights🏼 Book Your Color Match Appointment
Coutouring philosophy is redefining certain features—what you want to highlight and what you want to get rid of."
When you're picking out your shades, remember... —Choose a foundation that matches your skin tone, then one that's a shade darker for the shadows (like the dent under your cheekbones) and one that's a shade lighter for the areas you want to keep lighter or you want to highlight (like the area under your eyes). Sure, you can go more drastic than that in contrast, but for real life, it can look jarring if you're not an expert blender. So start subtle, it'll be enough to make a difference. —Think matte for exaggerating shadows and shimmer for highlighting. In other words, the areas you want to recede, you want to keep shimmer-free. Sparkle will only draw attention, which is why it's good for high points you want to make pop like your cheekbones. -If you have dark skin, concentrate on highlighting more than deepening the shadows of your face. Since a dark skin tone already plays up the shadowy areas, highlighting is the key to contouring for you.
When it's time to apply here's what to remember. —The general areas you want to darken are the line under your cheekbones (where your cheeks naturally indent), the area around your hairline, your jawline (to make your face look slimmer and more oval), and the sides or your nose up into the creases of your eyes. You can also bring the darker shade under your chin and down your neck if you want to hide a double chin. —The places to hit with a lighter shade: under the eyes, in the flat area in the center of your forehead, the center of your chin and the strip down the middle of your nose. —Blend, blend, blend. Scheppy likes to use a sponge dipped in moisturizer to blot and smudge until the lines are all blended away. You can also use a beauty Blender sponge to go over foundation before he starts the contour process to get an airbrushed effect.
Of course, all this is easier with the brushes. Check out ABL Cosmetics Face Contour Brushes.
