I asked you all on Facebook what makeup tutorial you wanted to see next, and the majority of you all said how to contour! I definitely am super excited about this video because contouring can be difficult to master. There are endless amounts of how to contour tutorials out there. You can contour with creams, or powders, or a mixture of both.
It’s kind of hard to navigate through the tutorials to find something that seems easy and doable. I feel like my method is perfect for every day wear, and it’s very natural.
HOW TO CONTOUR: and make it look NATURAL!
The four makeup products you need for how to contour are:
- A concealer that is 2 shades lighter than your skin tone
- Light/translucent setting powder for the concealer (this can be a part of your contour palette)
- A bronzer (preferably matte) – this is usually warmer toned
- A contour powder (could be part of your contour palette) – this is usually more cool toned
Obviously after that, you’ll want a blush and a highlighter… and those are totally to your preference!
In this video, we’ve got two things going on. One, I talk about my favorite products that I would recommend for how to contour. I even have 2 drugstore recommendations! Two, after the product talk, I jump straight into the tutorial, where I demonstrate how I highlight and contour most days. If you want to see the demo, skip ahead to 3:40 in the video.
This video is a little longer just because I go pretty in depth and recommend a lot of different products!
