Contouring is not tricky but some girls just can’t contour a cheek to save their lives! So to help you ladies look stunningly contoured, without streaks and bad highlighting, here a few secrets from the pros:
1. Say no to shimmery bronzer.
When contouring, stay away from a shimmery bronze. Here’s why – bronze and terra-cotta shades come with warm undertones which warm up your face and make it dazzle. While makeup for contouring face comes with cool undertones and creates depth on your face.
While makeup shopping you might be tended to buy a bronzer as they all look the same, but trust us, once on your face, the difference is very visible.
2. Say yes to highlighter.
Contouring makeup and and highlighters are like peanut butter and jelly, or vanilla icecream with chocolate sauce – you get the idea. Good contouring means creating shadows with the right tools and highlighting key areas to reflect light like your cheekbones and forehead.
3. Never make contouring lines.

The logic behind this is that contouring creates diffused shadows and sharp lines don’t make sense at all. The right brushes will help you achieve contouring perfection easily.
