Everyone’s face is different (duh!) so even though there’s a million youtube videos/tutorials showing you how to contour, that doesn’t mean contouring like them will suit your face. For example, with my face I have a small forehead so I never contour on the side of my forehead but I on the hollows of my cheek. You could already have perfectly sculpted cheekbones for instance then maybe you’d be able to focus a little bit more on the forehead. It’s all about face shape to get the best contouring look possible.
Yes it’s nice to splurge and treat ya self. But unlike some categories of makeup, like foundation and concealer (there are plenty of goodies in that department) it’s very easy to find good contouring products for a quarter of the price. There will be a whole post on affordable contouring products, don’t you worry.
Contouring doesn’t always have to be a part of your face. I mean you can do your makeup and maybe just lightly bronze. You don’t have to sculpt the shizz out of your face. I know I use to all the time but every now and then I find it refreshing to do a makeup look without contouring, change is good.
It doesn’t matter if your contour costs $50 or $5 if it isn’t the right shade for you it won’t look good. It is a bit of trial and error and what suits you will depend on your skin tone and undertone but trust me guys it’s all about the shade.
Another thing that doesn’t require $$$ now this totally depends on your personal preference. But it is going to be once again a bit of trial and error until you find what works best for you. You could want a tapered brush, a flat contour brush, heck even an eyeshadow brush could work. But do not fear I also plan to make a whole post on contour brushes.
That wraps up the post folks. As usual comment down below with anything and everything you’d like. Don’t be shy. Also comment below with any contour themed posts you’d like to see. I hope you all have an awesome day and I will see you in the next post. Cio. x
