Contouring is definitely a game changer if one is looking for a chiselled face. It definitely makes a big difference in defining our best features forward and helps to recede the features we want to push back. There are three kinds of textures available to make this magic work - Cream contour, Powder contour and Liquid contour. One needs to be sure of the zones we need to apply the product rightly to get that well sculpted well defined face. It’s also called the 3-D magic. The three dimensional look of the face. From all angles one call look perfectly defined.

Contouring is a magic step which makes the face super sculpted and slimmer. It adds that warmth to the face. My tip is to always use a matte highlight colour (yellow) to uplift the contour and make it look even sharper.
Contouring is totally my thing and it can be very technical! Important points to remember while you are contouring are to examine the shape of the face, study the nose, the jaw, the cheek area and forehead. The idea is to achieve a sharp nose, a crisp jawline, a highlighted cheekbone and forehead, a noticeable pout. Always sit in front of a mirror while drawing contour lines and lines to be drawn downwards always to maintain the symmetry

Contouring is an illusion we create for the shape of the face to look slimmer and as to have a dimension. It is important to map the face with darker of the dimensions and then blend it with a damp beauty blender with light movements merging it in your foundation and then set it with the powder.
