Contouring is a makeup technique that can help enhance your facial features and create a more sculpted look. A contour palette is a versatile tool that can contour, highlight, and add dimension to your face. If you're new to contouring, here are some tips and tricks to help you use a contour palette from Vanity Makeup Cosmetics.
Choose the Right Shades
The first step to using a contour palette is choosing the right shades for your skin tone. Look for shades that are one or two shades darker than your skin tone for contouring and shades that are one or two shades lighter for highlighting. If you're unsure which shades to choose, Vanity Makeup's cream contour palettes come in multiple shades to match various skin tones.
Use the Right Tools
Using the right tools is essential when it comes to contouring. A sculpting brush is perfect for applying contour products to the hollows of your cheeks, jawline, and forehead. A smaller brush is great for more precise contouring, such as around your nose. Vanity Makeup's sculpting and pencil brushes are designed specifically for contouring.
Apply Contour Products
Start by applying a small amount of contour product to your brush and tapping off any excess. Then, apply the product to the areas you want to contour, such as the hollows of your cheeks, jawline, and forehead. Blend the product well using circular motions, making sure there are no harsh lines.
Apply Highlight Products
After contouring, apply a small amount of highlight product to your brush and apply it to the high points of your face, such as the tops of your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, and your cupid's bow. This will help create a more sculpted and defined look.
Blending is key when it comes to contouring. Use a clean brush to blend your contour and highlight products together, making sure there are no harsh lines or uneven patches.
By following these tips and tricks, you can achieve a beautiful and sculpted look with your contour palette from Vanity Makeup Cosmetics. Remember to practice and experiment with different shades and techniques to find what works best for you.
