Every girl wants to look her best. When it comes to formal events, the initial thing that pops to our minds is that we need to have an elegant yet very flattering makeup look. Have you ever wondered how to do makeup so that it is flawless? To tell you the truth, there is nothing complex about that. All you need is the right products at hand and a few makeup tricks in mind. This is why we are going to show you every step on getting the ideal makeup contour look for full face!
Prep your skin with moisturizer. Apply foundation to even out your complexion. Apply the darker foundation below your cheekbones in a sweeping downwards motion on both sides of your face and blend. Use the pointed tip of the sponge to blend the product in the same linear pattern that you applied it. Swipe the deep colour into the hollows of your cheeks and just along the hairline to chisel your features. Then, swipe a line down each side of your nose to create a slenderizing effect.
Dip your angled brush into your highlight and draw a thin line down the centre of your nose. To make your nose appear taller and more slender, you want to place the contouring colour along the sides of the nose and the highlighting colour on the bridge. Use a small angled brush to apply the contour colour down the bridge of your nose to make it really pop.
Grab your highlighter and apply to give you that much-needed glow and shimmer to both sides of your face. Sweep the highlighter above the cheekbone, along the brow bone and down the centre of your nose to give the impression of a rounded surface. Use less pressure on the brush as you swipe down because you don’t want the contoured shadows to cross your cheekbone area.
Blend everything to perfection using a cosmetic sponge or makeup brush with soft bristles. Take a clean, fluffy brush and buff out your lines. Do not blend the contour lines into the highlight or it will look muddy. This step will ensure that the contouring makeup effect is blended nicely with your skin tone and not visible to anyone.
Then, continue with the rest of your makeup, including matte lipstick, false eyelashes, brow pencil and smoky eye effect.
