How To Contour Your Face

Easy peasy face contouring

Its Beauty Tuesday and today is all about face contouring!
Learning how to contour your face using blusher, bronzer and highlighter is such a nifty trick and a real example of where you can use make up to change your appearance quite considerably. With a quick sweep of a blusher brush you can give the illusion of higher cheekbones,  a thinner face and glowing good health, whats not to love?
Here is a quick tutorial I have put together showing how I do mine.

You will need
A matte bronzer
A rose coloured blush
A highlighter cream
2 x blusher brushes
1 x foundation brush

Step One
Take your bronzer and sweep it in a curve from the bottom of your cheek following the hollow of your cheekbone up until your hairline. I take this up to the hairline so it doesn't abruptly stop.
Sweep bronzer through the hollows of your cheeks

Step Two
Take your blusher and sweep it on the apples of your cheeks. If you smile widely you will see where these pads are. This will add colour and make your make up look more contoured and finished.
Add blusher to the fat part of your cheeks

Step Three
Take your foundation brush and blend in any hard lines and soften the contour edges.

Blend in with your foundation brush

Step Four
Take your highlighter and dot 3-4 spots on the highest part of your cheekbones. This will give the illusion of higher cheekbones and make the light bounce off at the most angular part of your face.
Dot highlighter on the highest part of your cheekbones

Step Five
Easy peasy face contouring!
