Contouring in make-up

Contouring is a makeup technique that has been around for centuries, but it has only recently gained popularity in the Western world. The idea behind contouring is to enhance your natural features by using makeup to create the illusion of shadows and highlights. While contouring can be used to achieve a variety of looks, it is most commonly used to give the face a slimmer appearance.

What contouring does in make-up

Contouring is a makeup technique that uses light and dark colours to create the illusion of depth and dimension in the face. Applying a lighter shade to the high points of the face and a darker shade to the low points. It helps to sculpt and define features.

When done correctly, contouring can give the face a more angular appearance. It also helps to create the illusion of a slimmer nose or jawline. For those with rounder faces, contouring can also help give the face more definition.

It recently gained popularity in the mainstream thanks to celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner, who are known for their flawless makeup looks.

If you’re new to contouring, there are plenty of tutorials and guides available online to help you get started. When it comes to choosing products, there are now many affordable options available from drugstore brands.

How to do a perfect contour when making-up

When it comes to contouring, there are many different ways to go about it. Some people like to use bronzer, while others prefer a cream or powder foundation. Various techniques can be used, such as using a brush or your fingers.
