Contouring Tips

Contouring can be intimidating, and difficult to get right on the first few tries. But, with makeup, like many things, practice makes perfect; and; trial and error is key to making contouring work for you. One of the best ways you can ease yourself into contouring is to be well prepared. This means the right products and tools, which will make the whole process a lot easier.


I have found that for most people, who have never really contoured before, a powder contour is a great product to start with. Powders are generally easier for most people to blend, and last well on the skin. Two of my favourite contouring powders are the Kevin Aucoin Sculpting Powder and the Charlotte Tilbury FilmStar Bronze and Glow. Finding the right shade for your contour will help immensely with application.

Also, a contour product that is not too pigmented is key to it being user friendly. With makeup, your application will look natural if you start with a little product and build it up. A contour powder that goes on softly, will help with this process.

Finally, my last tip is all about the tools. If you struggle with contour, it may help you to invest in a good contour brush. My favourite is the Rae Morris small powder brush. A brush that is small and precise will help you with keeping your contour where you want it. Also, have your beauty sponge or foundation brush on hand to blend the edges of contour, so it looks like a natural shadow.
