Once you have mastered eye makeup and foundation applications it’s time to move on to the big leagues. And one of the advanced techniques you should try is contouring. Did you know that by using a bit of contour makeup in a strategic area your face can look slimmer? It’s simple to do, but try it out a couple of times so you become a pro, then reveal your new look one day at school!
To make things simple for you there is a contouring and blush palette that you can pick up. It comes complete with a variety of matte and high-pigmented shades. It’s important to know that dark hues recede light while the light ones help bring it forward. So you will be adding a mix of light and dark hues to slim your face.
For a thinner face, add the darker color from cheek to ear in a curved line. You might want to squeeze your lips together to make a “fish face” so you can see where to apply the shade. Use a blush brush to blend the contouring makeup so it’s not so noticeable. Bring out the contour even more by applying the high-pigmented hue above the dark shade and blending it in so it matches your skin tone.
