How is contour applied?
Where you apply your contour should depend on your face shape. Apply your darker contour shade on areas you want to define. This may be the sides of your nose (to slim it), the hollows of your cheeks (to enhance your cheekbones), or the temples (to narrow the forehead).
You can then team your contour with some highlight to enhance the areas you want to draw attention to.
Highlighter is used to draw the eye to the bridge of the nose, cupid's bow, cheek bones and the inner corners of the eyes.
Okay, so what is bronzing and how can I pick the perfect bronzer?
Essentially, bronzer is used to emulate a sun-kissed glow and enhance a tan - it’s also a great way to make your skin look radiant and healthy.
Bronzing products come in different formulas: gels, creams, powders, and liquids. Some products are used all over the body and not just on the face.
You can also choose a matte bronzer or a shimmery one. A matte bronzer is better if you want a natural finish, whereas shimmer is best for a sun-kissed, radiant finish.
Bronzers tend to be more warm-toned, which is why you shouldn’t use one as contour. A matte bronzer may look like a good contour shade, but it's more likely to warm your skin and not create the cool-toned shadows you want.
