Contouring What is this makeup technique capable of?
In recent years, several make-up application techniques have become widely available. But undoubtedly contouring remains the most popular and popular. What are its features and is this make-up technique capable of changing the face?
Contouring itself is not a novelty for the masters of the beauty industry. It has been successfully used for a long time both on shows and on set. But more recently, contouring has become available to every girl, because the cosmetics with which this technique is applied can be used by every woman of the fair sex. For what this technique is so fond of many girls and why it is actively used now around the world, it is easy to understand. Fully satisfied with their appearance women are very few. Someone does not like a wide nose, someone wants to have more expressive cheekbones, and someone is not happy with his chin. The list of claims to your own appearance can be very long, and contouring allows not only to emphasize the advantages, but also to visually hide the flaws. This is achieved with the help of properly placed accents. Everything we need to draw attention to is clarified; everything that is worth distracting attention is obscuring. But this simple rule is not so easy to put into practice. After all, used cosmetics should be well shaded on the skin and be combined with its natural tone. People should not have the impression of a thick layer of “plaster” applied to the face. How to achieve this?
Before proceeding directly to contouring, it is necessary to cleanse and moisturize the face. Also, the preliminary stage is the alignment of skin tone using a tonal framework. Since contouring has recently become very popular, a large number of palettes with shades perfectly selected for this technique appeared on the market of decorative cosmetics. They are most convenient and take advantage of. The texture of such tools is diverse, cream and powdery kits for contouring require increased attention. Light shades are applied to the area under the eyebrows and under the eyes, on the center of the forehead and chin, as well as in the area above the upper lip and a vertical line on the nose. Dark shades can emphasize the cheekbones and temporal zone. Visually narrow nose allows two dark longitudinal stripes on the sides. With the help of a brush or a special cosmetic sponge, the applied cosmetics should be shaded. Applied cosmetics should not be noticeable in the form of spots and stripes on the skin, certain areas of the face should be shaded, others, on the contrary, should become lighter and draw attention to themselves first.
In general, the skin should get a healthy and well-groomed appearance without a hint of imperfections. The final step can be to use powder to make final touches and fix makeup. Contouring really allows you to emphasize the merits and hide the flaws. This facial technique has ceased to be available only to professional makeup artists, now it can be used by every woman.
