Contouring is a popular trend right now! I have tried many products. The following four are what I am currently using. 🙂
First thing I do after applying my primer and foundation is use the Nars Creamy Concealer in the color “Custard”. I only use this for under eye and blemish coverage. It is around $29.00 and can be bought at Sephora or http://www.narscosmetics.com
I then go ahead and highlight with Maybellines Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer in the color “Brightener”. I use this on my under eyes (on top of the nars concealer). I also use it on the bridge of my nose and the center of my forehead. It is around $8.99 and can be bought at Ulta, Walgreens, CVS, any department store that sells drug store beauty products.
TIP: After applying either concealers I use my finger and pat it out so that it looks smooth.
I then sculpt the face with Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer in the color “Medium/Deep”. I use this in the hollows of my cheeks, forehead on my hairline down to the temples, underneath my jaw bone and chin, and lastly on the sides of my nose. It is around $30.00 and can be bought at Sephora, Ulta, and http://www.toofaced.com
TIP: I like to heavily contour, so once I apply a good amount of bronzer I will take a flat kabuki brush OR a big fluffy brush and blend it out so that there are no sharp lines.
After this I would apply my blush on the apples of my cheeks and blend it out. I didn’t include one that I am currently using because I switch it out frequently.
To finish out the look I like to use ELF Studio Baked Highlighter in the color “Moonlight Pearls”. I use this on the tops of my cheek bones, above my top lip, and the center of my chin. It is around $3.00 and can be bought at Target or http://www.eyeslipsface.com
TIP: I like to apply this with a small, flat, kabuki brush. Makes it an easy, pre-blended look. No harsh shimmer lines! 🙂
