How do you contour for beginners?
How do you contour your face with makeup? Add contour to the hollows of your cheeks. For rectangle-shaped faces, try to avoid applying contour too far into the center of the face. Instead, keep it closer to the sides of your face. Move up to your forehead and apply contour along the hairline, starting in the center and stopping before you reach your temples.
Do you contour before or after foundation? Contouring makeup is usually applied after foundation and concealer. Cream, liquid, and stick contours can be applied directly on top of foundation and then blended out for a seamless finish.
What is the easiest way to contour? The easiest and most familiar way to contour is to take your darker shade and use it to create a shadow underneath your cheekbones. Find your cheekbones by sucking in your cheeks and tracing the product along the hollows of your cheeks, following the natural shape of your jawline and temple.
