7 STEPS TO FACIAL CONTOURING

AS A PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP ARTIST (REISHA), I LOVE FACIAL CONTOURING...

If done correctly, FACIAL CONTOURING can gently enhance or dramatically change the overall look of your [ALREADY GORGEOUS] face.
Now there IS a RIGHT and a WRONG way to do this lovely technique...
So here are the 7 STEPS TO FACIAL CONTOURING that are essential for a BEAUTIFUL LOOK...GET YOURSELF A GOOD QUALITY CONTOURING STICK DUO (WILL INCLUDE BOTH  A LIGHTER AND A DARKER STICK) AND THEN FOLLOW THESE STEPS...

STEP 1 Apply foundation as you normally would before beginning contouring
STEP 2 First step in contouring is HIGHLIGHTING. Take the LIGHTER CONTOURING STICK shade and apply under the eyes, down the bridge of your nose, on your chin, and in upward strokes on your forehead. Blend with the makeup brush until no visible lines show

STEP 3 Now it's time to create your SHADOWS. Apply the DARKER CONTOURING STICK shade underneath your cheekbones (you can find this area by sucking in your cheeks), along your hairline and jawline. Be sure to blend in circular motions with the makeup brush all the way back into your hairline and down the neck so no clear makeup lines are visible

STEP 4 Next set your look with powder. Dust the light translucent powder anywhere you applied your highlighter

STEP 5 Take the bronzer and set the areas where you applied your DARKER CONTOURING STICK

STEP 6 Now that contouring is complete, add a bit of color into the cheeks with your favorite shade of blush. Soft pinks compliment fair skin, while plums pair well with darker complexions

STEP 7 Finish with a light application of lipstick, lip balm or lip gloss!
