Contouring is amazing! I love sculpting my face!
Although it has been made popular relatively recently by Kim Kardashian West, I’m sure it has been a make-up artist’s secret for decades. I can see why.
It gives the effect of instant weight loss for the face which I love because compared with my teenage self, I’m sure my face is rounder. My friends, family and probably you guys think I’m crazy for picking on such a thing! My rational mind says I can’t look like a teenager forever but I’ve given into society’s image of beauty – just a little bit.
Actually, the best thing about contouring is that I can emphasise my best features (apparently I do have cheekbones!) but if I contour in a particular way, to some, it looks like I’m not wearing any makeup. That’s what I want really for day-to-day wear.
Some people will contour from the liquid foundation to powder but I seldom wear liquid foundation. I use powder only.
My contour kit is mainly from the high street- Seventeen, Sleek and MUA, with a YSL Touch Éclat thrown in if I’m in the mood. I’ll do another post on how I use them – it’s a complete mix and match affair!
