Face Contouring:

This is a must for me when applying makeup on myself or others. I love creating the illusion of high cheek bones and strong jaw lines. Follow the steps below to achieve the look.

How to contour your nose to make it look slimmer

To contour a wide nose to slimming effect, apply the darkest color to the outside of the bridge and keep the center lighter. You can use makeup to achieve a slimmer-looking nose by using two shades of foundation or one bronzer—simply sweep bronzer along the sides of the nose, leaving the front of the bridge bare.

How to contour your jawline to recede a double chin

To diminish a double chin, use this contouring makeup trick: sweep bronzer under your jawline to make the area appear to recede. As a general rule, light makeup colors highlight an area, calling attention to it and making it appear more prominent (good for brow bones and cheekbones). Dark shadows create the illusion of a shadow and make areas of the face appear to recede (good for droopy lids and puffy undereyes).
