With contouring all the range at the moment I decided to purchase a contouring kit from Poni Cosmetics to try for myself. Contouring brings different reactions to women. Some women light up and get excited when you mention the word, however, others recoil in disgust. This is probably owing to the amount of photos and Youtube videos floating around the Internet featuring the make up technique. With the likes of the Kardashian and Tyra Banks making the trend big, some worry it’s an over the top look. While they like the sleek, sculpted look, many women doubt they can replicate it at home. The good news is, contouring is very easy and when you get the right kit, it can easily be incorporated into your normal make up routine.
To start you off with the basics, I’ve outlined the areas that you should focus upon and why they make a difference.
Contouring is applied to the temple for the aim of making the face shape more oval. You may be interested to learn that an oval shaped face is perfect when it comes to make up application.
If you have a large or broad nose, contouring can help make it look narrower. By sweeping a line of highlighter down the centre and then sides, it draws your attention to the narrowest part of the nose and hence making it appear thinner. However, it is important to use this technique sparingly. While you may think your nose is a problem area, you don’t want to end up making it look too narrow and ending up looking face. The whole purpose is to define the area, so tread lightly.
What girl doesn’t want her cheekbones to pop? Contouring can make your cheekbones stand out and completely enhance the structure of your face. It’s many girls favourite place to contour as the effect can be dramatic in a very good way. It’s again important that you don’t get too heavy handed with the bronzer. You want to create a defined look and not like you’ve got a big streak on your face. Always remember that blending is key.
