Contouring, its not just for the rich and famous!

It's AMAZING how much you can change your appearance with just the addition of contouring.  What is contouring???

CONTOURING is the art of shading and hilighting to bring out or lessen features.  It works best when you use the same color family, in lighter nad darker shades.  For instance, for blusher you blush as normal and if you want to have killer cheekbones, add a touch of a blusher a couple shades darker just under where you have put your blush, where you have slight hollows.  This makes your cheekbones pop.  Then you can add a lighter, shimmery color on the top of your cheekbones.  Blend well,  as you dont want stripes!  The darker shades recede things (make them look smaller) and the lighter makes them stand out.  If you have a slight double chin, take a brush with a little blush or bronzer on it and brush from under chin towards neck, straight down.  The double chin disappears, you have shaded it away!!!  For noses, if its too long, a dap of blush/bronze on the end helps, or if too wide, brush a little on either side leaving the middle free.  Experiment and call, facebook or email us with any questions.
