Make-up: My Face - Contour

I only learnt about contour about a year ago, before that I kind of just shoved bronzer on wherever I felt like it. Which is fine, and to be honest I still do that - especially when fake tanner errors mean that my face is not the same colour as my neck (happens too often). But now I find myself doing this 'contour' business a lot more often. So here is what I use and some before and after pictures.






Rimmel Natural Bronzer Power (025 Sun Glow) £5.59 - Apologies for the awful, awful picture of this. But ignoring the ugliness of the photo, this is what I use for bronzer and contour. I'm going to be honest and say I'm not in love with this bronzer - I think it comes out a little on the warm side for me. That said it can't be that bad as I still use it every day! Just think I may try something different when it is finished. When contouring I use a MAC 168 Large Angle Contour brush to go just under my cheek bones to give them a bit more definition. I then blend this up to my temples. With my MAC 134 Large Power brush I then blend it all it so it doesn't look too harsh. With the same brush I put a little bronzer around my hair line, and quickly on my nose and cheeks (basically trying to replicate where the sun would hit my face naturally).

Hopefully you can actually see a difference in these photos - there was one, promise. Next...blush.

  2. I haven't tried contouring before, I was reading an article in a magazine the other day on it and I really want to give it a go! My cheeks never look quite right when I apply my blusher so I think I need to improve my techniques a little hehe, I'll have to give contouring a go :)

    1. I kind of find that with contouring...not to be too scared of putting too much on. I kind of go a little 80's stripe-y to get a good effect and then blend it in so it doesn't look too mad. So technical! I've seen some before and after photos online where it makes such a huge difference.
