The best Contouring techniques

Contouring is a play of light and shadow that creates optical illusions. This technique aims to give depth to the face, mark the jaw, slim the nose and bring out the strengths of each part of the face.

While light colors illuminate (highlight), the darker create shadows and depth; together, the different tones create proportions, curves and angles.

The most important is to use the right products and techniques, because once found, the contouring can easily be part of your makeup routine.

The first step should be to create a perfect complexion. Therefore, you should apply the right makeup foundation on the hydrated and protected skin.
