Cream contour is gaining popularity these days for the ease of application and quick, Kardashianesque, Instagram-worthy results. The bold shades photograph well and can be applied fairly easily even with fingers. Here are a few tips to help you with your cream contours.
Get good sponges. Yes, you can use your fingers, but results will be fairly rough, to say the least. In any case, you will not regret using a decent sponge to help you better define (and hide) all those lovely features.
Know your face. Seems weird to say it, but many of us don’t understand what our faces truly look like. Go in front of the mirror and take a few minutes to get acquainted with the most beautiful person in the world. Take note of specific features you’d want to highlight and reshape. Taking this simple step of planning your contouring will save you both time and embarrassment down the road.
Know your skin. Cream and liquid contours work well with dry skin and will make it appear more youthful and radiant. However, this doesn’t mean someone with oily skin won’t be able to use it. Some cream contours are known to work with a range of skin types, so it’s more important to check it out for its individual merits.
