Make-up|Contour! Contour! Contour!

One of the easiest ways to make your face appear slimmer and your nose narrow isn’t through expensive surgical procedures but by something as simple as a contour kit.

Here is a step-by-step plan on how you too can look fierce like J-lo or smouldering like the K-dash girls.

1. Apply your foundation that matches your skin tone. I always match mine with my neck because I never get sun on my face so it is always a couple shades lighter and I want it to match the rest of my body.

2. Starting with your light foundation take your flat brush apply it under your eyes and on your cheekbones all the way up to your hairline. Apply it in the middle of your forehead, down the centre of your nose,  underneath your eyebrows on the brown bone, along your jawline and on your collar bone. Do not blend yet.

4. Time to blend. Taking your foundation brush, in a circular motion blend everything in. You will be surprised how easy this is and how great it looks instantly!

5. Apply powder. Now you need to set all the work you just did in. It’s important to use a powder brush to do this not a puff. After you have gone over your face I put a good amount under my eyes and on my cheekbones, I leave it unblended while I do the rest of my make up and blend it at the end. This gives your cheekbones that extra pop. I really love Airspun powder because it goes on great and is translucent but when you apply more under your eyes and on your cheekbones it gets lighter. Whatever powder you use make sure the powder under your eyes is light, this brightens up your face and makes your eyes pop.

I finish up this look with a little shimmer or bronzer on my cheekbones and a touch of blush on the apples of my cheek. This make-up trick always looks really amazing in photos as well so try it for your next special occasion or if you just want to look stunning going to Starbucks. It’s great for day and night. Just make sure to blend!
