I was having lunch with some Adelaide based beauty lovers last week when one of our group members, Jamila from Jamballdonut, dropped a bombshell. She showed me a contouring technique that is life changing!
I’ve always struggled with contouring, especially cheeks, which is strange because I have watched so many YouTube videos and read so many blog posts that I am very familiar with the idea of how it is supposed to work. But, on me, it always looks weird. I discovered however, that the reason for it looking unnatural was the placement of the product. I was applying the contour shade too low. Thankfully with the technique that Jamila showed me, proper placement is no longer a problem.
This technique works best with a cream or gel contour shade. I got my Becca Lowlight Sculpting Perfector from Recreate Yourself (ry.com.au), after I emailed them and asked if they would like to partner with me on this post. Previously I had ordered my sister a Parlux hairdryer for her birthday and was super impressed with the prices, service and fast shipping.
Contouring Made Easy!
~ Use a cream or gel product.
~ Press the base of your thumb into the product.
~ Press the base of your thumbs together to apply the product evenly to both hands.
~ Press up and under the cheekbones.
~ Blend lightly by pressing product into skin.
~ Apply blush to apples of cheeks and along cheekbones.
~ Perfect contouring every time!
