How to Contour, Cheekbone-lift instead of Creating a Beard
Alrighty, contour is tricky. People say make the fish face and fill in the area that indents… well that’s not necessarily right. Finding the hollow of your cheek will help you find your cheekbone, but you do not want to fill in that whole area. As you can see in that video you aren’t creating a shadow, more of a beard. You want to put the contour on the lower part of your cheekbone, the blush on the ball of the cheekbone, and the illuminator on the top of the cheekbone. Watch the video to understand the common mistakes and how to give that cheekbone a little lift.
There’s two styles of contour. You can make it really look like make up, or you can make it look like a shadow on your face. The way you do the latter, is matching the contour to the color of your skin.
I can help you match your Maskcara contour with a few questions online, a picture or an in person color match appointment. Let me know if you want to learn more. Email me at email@example.com.
In this video I am using Indigo, which is a warmer/darker contour. I usually actually use Olive or Ash as it creates more of a shadow look on my face, but I wanted it to really show up in this video… and I have to say I love both styles of contour, to look dramatic, or to look like a subtle shadow.
Also keep in mind, there are different contour patterns for different face shapes. So what works for one person, might not work best for you. Play with it.
