Contouring makes it possible to narrow noses, raise cheekbones and reduce foreheads with just a brushstroke or blend. Many women who want to make minor changes to their faces can do so with the addition of a skin blender, brushes and selection of shades to their daily routine. With a few shades lighter and darker than your natural skin tone, anyone can design, enhance and sculpt features to achieve the look they want. Contouring is the answer and it literally takes just a few minutes.
The growing popularity of contouring
For many years, strategic shading has been used. The art form started onstage with actors and actresses who wanted to combat poor lighting but evolved in popularity. From Marilyn Monroe to Cindy Crawford, many celebrities relied on shading techniques to create their signature beauty look. This approach allows everyone to highlight their best features and manipulate their non-desirable ones. When popular celebrities such as Jessica Alba and the Kardashians started to share their beauty secrets with the masses, contouring tools became easily accessible to many women.
Now makeup lines from Mac to Bobbi Brown to Boots sell contouring brushes, blushes and more. Question is, how can we use these minor accents to further magnify beauty every day?
