CONTOURING BASIC : FOLLOW YOUR HOLLOW
Contouring your face adds dimension and accentuates your facial structure. All you need to do is to find the natural hollow of the face and apply the bronzer or your preferred contouring product.
Remember this mantra, “ Follow-your-hollow “ and you wont go wrong.
WHAT YOU NEED
Contouring product! There are many options that is available out in the market. There are two main formulations. Cream and powder. The best way is to have both :) . Powder is best during Summer or for people with oily & combination skin type. Creamier formulations are great for people with drier skin type and perfect for Winter.
This is just a general guide. The fun part is to try out different brands to find that perfect formulation and shade. By the way, did we mention that we will be launching an amazing Contouring product? Stay tuned.
HOW TO USE IT
We know that Kim Kardashian’s contouring steps may be too long for those that are in a rush! So just follow these easy steps to achieve a natural effect.
First, get your products ready. For powder formulations, I would use it once I’m done with my base makeup. For cream formulation, we would suggest that you use it above your base makeup but before your setting powder if that’s the last step of your makeup. This will ensure that the product will last and won’t run easily.
As you can see from the picture of the model, we have highlighted the natural hollows of her face. These are the areas where you would apply your contouring product. Yes! It is that easy. Remember, what we are trying to do is to accentuate our features so follow the natural hollows of the face and you won’t go wrong.
If you are new to contouring, always remember that we would want to ensure that we don’t over do it. Always apply sparingly and slowly build it to your desired intensity. It is very important that you blend so you create a soft gradient where the product doesn’t leave a harsh line.
Hope this helps and happy contouring.
