Beauty Tip of the Day #8

When contouring your cheekbones with a powder, use a slightly pointed brush or a dense brush like the MAC 109 and start from next to the ear going down the cheekbone.  Go in small circular motions, avoiding a straight line down your face.  The circular motions, will blend the contour powder in to look like an actual shadow and give you definition rather than just a stripe!

Also, less is more, start with a little product and gradually add more if needed.  Always better than using too much and then struggling to blend it out...

  1. Great advice. I've just started contouring a year ago (at 37!) and it's taken quite a bit of practise to get this right. Even now I think I get it wrong occasionally. Will give this technique a try. :)
