If you're wondering how the biggest celebrities in the biz always look flawless, we have one word for you: contouring. It's a way to apply your makeup so that your best features stand out. To get started with contouring basics, here's what you'll need:
In order to contour, you need a product that is a shade or two darker than your natural skin tone, which is why bronzer comes in so handy. Apply it diagonally underneath your cheekbones, on the sides of your nose and on your jaw line underneath your chin. It will make everything look longer and thinner – just don't forget to blend!
Rather than applying your blush directly on top of your cheekbones, sweep it above your bronzer so that it's parallel to your jaw line. This will create the effect of making the apples of your cheeks stand out, which can be very flattering.
Want to know the secret to contouring? It's highlighter. Use it to cover the small bump at the top of your nose, apply it to your brow bones and just above your blush, and dab a bit on the bottom and top portion of your lips.
