Contouring

Makeup is an important mania for the women of today’s world to improve their self-confidence and outlook.  While talking about makeup contouring is one of the most important steps to give your face a sensuous look. Contouring has different techniques for different face cuts according to their shape and size.

Whether you have a round face or longish oval face, you can easily reduce its effect by contouring it. People with round face sometimes feel difficult to manage it; here are some contouring tips that will surely be helpful.

First of all, one has to have a right haircut to help reduce the effect of roundness and then contouring is there to create a magic. You have to cover the right sides of your face with straight vertical strokes of the brush.

Then cover the jaw line too as when you have a round face, it isn’t that prominent and you have to make an effort to make it so with the same contouring technique. You also need a depression in your cheeks for the complete look. For that you need to squeeze your cheeks and then follow the brush on your cheek bone, moving towards your lips.

If you have a nose that doesn’t have a defined shape and you want it to look thinner and a bit sharper, all you have to do is to cover the sides with dark strokes leaving out the tip because it will not block the length.

Some people have face cuts that make it difficult to name a shape of the face. One such example is a face cut with a broader jaw line and a narrow forehead. So they should not gel backed their hair because it will make forehead to look smaller.

Give your hair a little volume and a slight lift on the head to make a proper round shape. It will balance the width of your head with your jaw line. For the contouring, cover your jaw line in such a way that it should slightly cover the bone going towards the cheeks.

Apply a slightly darker blusher towards your ear and a gradual blending towards your lips to get a balanced shape.

Try out these makeup tips, and practice a lot instead of getting dishearten after the first try, as practice makes you perfect.
