Regardless of your skin type, contour powders will tend to provide you a great deal of flexibility when you’re doing your make up. As the name implies, they’re suited for creating the illusion of angles and contours on your face, working in conjunction with highlighters to bring out your best features, or hide the ones you’re not too comfortable with. Here are some quick tips for their use.
1. Work with your foundation. The foundation you choose should be the basis for your choices in contour powder colors. This is especially important if you’re going for a more natural look, as unnatural color differences will readily pop out if your fundamental color selection is off.
2. Blend with brushes. Good quality brushes are among the most underrated tools in your makeup arsenal. Use them to easily blend different contour colors together for a winning, natural look.
3. Map your face. The magic of even the best contour and brush kits have their limits. Consult with a beauty expert or browse through articles here on BeautyMNL to figure out how to work with your own natural features for better contouring results.
