How To Contour Your Face


The purpose of contouring is to emphasise or minimise an appearance on your face without turning to cosmetic surgery. Most women use contouring to make their faces appear slimmer, minimise the look of a large nose or enhance their cheekbones. Whatever the reason is that brought you here, we can show you how to contour by using this simple illustration. Here is what you will need:

  •  Contour powder: the powder should be a few shades darker than your skin tone, you can use foundation or bronzer (ensure the texture is matt and not say a shimmer). We recommend Lucie Lavelle Pressed Mineral Foundation or Bronzer
  • Highlighter: The easiest to work with would be powder form and they usual come in the following undertones; gold, pink, peach and neutral. The powder works by reflecting light so it draws attention to the areas which they are applied to on the face. We recommend, Lucie Lavelle Natural Illuminating Powder in pearl.


Some helpful tips:

  • Ensure you use clean makeup brushes. If you don’t have a special contouring brush, an angled blush brush also works really well.
  • Spend time on blending the shades into the right areas, you wont regret it!
Happy Contouring!
