Contouring is one of the most amazing makeup tricks that can make a huge difference in the shape of somebody’s face. I’m definitely not an expert (yet) but I do try to contour most days. I will prime my face and apply concealer and eye makeup before I start contouring. Then I use a liquid bronzer (I use the Stila Stay All Day Bronzing Beauty Balm) and highlight the areas of my face that I want to look more shaded.
For me, those areas are the hollows of my cheekbones and the sides of my nose (instant free nose job!). After applying the bronzer, I put on my regular foundation and then I blend the foundation and bronzer (so I don’t look like Tony the Tiger). After that, I set my foundation with powder, finish with lip color and I’m ready to go.
