Contouring: One Way Doesn’t Fit All

Contouring is a vital step when applying make up because it can either empathize or conceal your features. The chart above demonstrates how to easily contour your face based on its unique shape. If you’re like me, you constantly see one way of contouring your make up. In so many ways, this is wrong. I know just by looking at my own face that I shouldn’t be following how another girl contours her own because more than likely we have a different facial shape.

This chart above should also be taken with a grain of salt because you may have features you want to minimize like a large nose or wide forehead.  Personally, I want to minimize the dimple on my chin and I do this by blending the darker and lighter color together. (I always add a little more of the darker shade.)  My best advice is to learn your face shape and go from there.

But in the meantime, this chart is a great BASIC learning tool on what contouring is and how it helps define your face.

  1. To start, you will need two shades of foundation, one that is one shade lighter than your skin and another that is one shade darker. (Lighter shade highlights and the darker conceals.)
  2. Next, completely cover your face with the lighter shade.
  3. Then, follow the chart and apply the darker shade everywhere you see color on the chart.
  4. After, blend the two shades together where they meet. Try not to apply the foundation in a streak like pattern, instead make small cross or x patterns. This will help you blend your make up easier and help prevent a streaky finish.
