How To Contour Your Face
Amateur makeup enthusiasts face the most obstacles when it comes to contouring. For the unversed, contouring is using makeup to define and accentuate certain parts of your face. Read on to learn how to correct your face correctly.
Steps To Contour Your Face
Before going ahead, it should be noted that this is not the only way to contour your face. This is just one method that most people use today. However, it is the best in terms of results and ease of execution.
Now then, let us get on with the tutorial.
The first thing you need to do is choose your makeup products. You will need an angled brush, a dark matte brown eyeshadow, a neutral matte brown eyeshadow, a cream makeup colour corrector and a bronzer or contouring powder kit.=
Secondly, decide what areas of your face you want to accentuate. In this tutorial, we will be focusing on the cheekbones and jawline as well as some other parts of the face such as the around nose and forehead. However, if you want to do all over contouring then simply apply the bronzer (how to apply bronzer) with an angled brush.

Apply the orange colour corrector onto areas such as under your eyes, around your nose and on any blemishes that you might have. Make sure that it has completely set your base before moving on to the next step. This can take anywhere from 10 minutes up to an hour depending on how much makeup you are wearing.
Put some of the dark brown bronzer from your brush and begin applying it onto your cheekbones. Make sure that it's not too much or else you will end up looking like a bruise on your face. If you feel like there are areas that need more definition, then use the angled brush and go over them again with a darker shade.
