The Art of Contouring

Image

It is true that makeup can hide our imperfections and highlight advantages, that`s why it is important to know how to properly apply it. Remember that a makeup, which is not suitable for you is worse than going without any makeup at all, as it makes you look ridiculous. In this tutorial you can see how an ordinary-looking girl turns into a fashion icon, simply by applying the foundation the right way.

First of all the form of your face is very important, in order to make yourself aware which parts should be highlighted and how to do it. In this case, the girl chose to highlight her cheekbones and her chin and in addition she has managed to visually change the form of her nose.

The ideal makeup is usually a mixture of a few foundations, primers and powders, so make sure to choose them carefully. In addition, don`t underestimate brushes – they are a vital part, too.

Thousands of songs have been sung about the deep, beautiful eyes. Here is one more make up technique, which will help you make your eyes even more beautiful than they are … and who knows the next song could be dedicated to you. So follow the steps:

1. Apply eye shadow primer, using your finger on your eyelids and the area below the eyebrows. Then use a black pencil to draw a line along the crease of your eyes.

2.Use a brush(219) to apply “Blackout”  eye shadow along the line you draw in step 1. Use the same brush to apply “Busted” above and overlapping the previous one.

3. Take care of the brow bone by using brush 239 and “Bootycall”

4.Apply “Chopper” to the lids, using the same brush. Follow the base of the cut-crease line for best results.

5. Brush 210 will help you with the eyeliner. Start from the inner corner of your eye.

6. Brush 239 is your friend when it comes to applying “Bootycall” to your eyes` inner corners. This will “open” your eyes and give you an awesome look.

7.Time to get back to “Blackout”, but this time brush 266 should be used. Sharpen the cut-crease line as shown on the picture

8. At this stage it might look slightly unfinished, so it is time to blend it, using brush 217. Apply “Tease” between “Bootycall” and “Busted”. If you need more blending, you can use brush 244.

 

Now, the only thing you need to do is to either glue your long lashes and apply mascara or simply rely on your natural ones… and apply mascara.

Brighten Up: Tutorial on Makeup Highlighting

Image
Highlighting and contouring is a mainstay in celebrity and red carpet makeup techniques. The reason being, a highlighted face looks as if it has perfect lighting on it, no matter the angle. It allows you to define your bone structure while minimizing flaws and it gives you a simply glowing complexion. Most women who’ve heard of highlighting, but have to try it, think it’s out of their skill league. Not so, it’s actually simpler than it appears. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll use it for special events and be able to do it quickly for your everyday makeup routine too! Here’s a tutorial with step-by-step instructions on the basic highlighting techniques.

Blush Up: Start by blushing up your cheeks with your standard blush brush. Don’t forget to smile as you apply, to make sure you get the apples covered. A subtle pink is a good way to go for most skin types. If you’re used to using a deeper, redder, blush you may want to switch it out for highlighting.

The Bronze: This is sort of the meat and potatoes of your contouring efforts. The color bronzer you choose is very important. If it’s too tan, orange or has sparkles in it, you’re going to be looking at something totally unnatural instead of something totally right on. Pick a bronzer that has a cool undertone. By “cool” I mean to say it lacks that orange-y terracotta color so many bronzers have. It might sound complicated, but once you get to the store and start looking at your choices, you’ll see what I mean. Think “cool” as opposed to “reddish-orange.” Use an angled medium sized brush to apply the bronzer lightly to just underneath your cheekbones. You’re essentially creating a shadow that will naturally highlight the contours of your cheeks. Next, apply bronzer to the outer edges of your face, near your jawline, hairline, etc. Remember, start with a light touch and add more later if you think it’s necessary.

Drawing lesson: Bronzing comes in two parts. The second of which involves defining your nose. Take a small eye shadow brush and dip it in the bronzer, tap off any excess. Now draw a thin line down on each side of your nose. Start at the bottom edge of your eyebrow and draw a straight line to the tip of your nose. Take the same brush and apply bronzer underneath the bottom of your lip, this will make it more prominent. Take a bigger eye shadow brush and use it to blend the lines on your nose, without erasing them. Finally, use an eyebrow pencil (preferably a light brown) to draw on the outside of your lips, as if you’re lining them with lip liner. Just a thin line as close to your lip line as possible, without going on your lips. Use the sponge at the bottom of the pencil or any other makeup sponge to blend that line.

Conceal: Use a concealer on a stiff, thick blending brush to apply highlights to your face. It’s all about the placement here. Think of the top of your cheek as an invisible triangle, apply the concealer from the bottom side of your nose to the upper area under your bottom lashes and outward to the edge of your cheek. Repeat on the other side. Now do the same with the area of skin underneath your nose and above your top lip. Do it at the bottom of your chin. Finally, use the same technique to add some concealer to the center of your forehead, blending in circles as you apply.

Thin Cream Line: Take your lip brush and dip it in the concealer. Draw a thin line down the middle of your nose. Use your finger to blend the line.

Illuminate: If you want to add a finishing touch, some highlighting illuminator on your cheekbones is just the thing.

Voila! You are highlighted!
