Contouring is certainly one of the make-up techniques that is most talked about in all the circles where the word “beauty” comes into play.
In fact, this particular way of applying makeup is constantly being emulated, and consists of highlighting the features of your face so that it appears in its most beautiful light. In addition, this process of beautifying the face, which was the preserve of professional make-up artists and celebrities, has become popular and more and more people are doing it, alone at home or in specialized institutions. However, if you do it yourself, there are a number of mistakes to avoid in order to achieve an ace contourting of the make-up palette. Here are a few tips that I would like to share with you through this article.
Contouring is a makeup technique that requires a certain amount of dexterity in the process of its perfect realization. It is therefore advisable to follow to the letter the different steps of its realization, and especially to avoid certain errors that could produce the opposite effect to the one you are looking for.
4 MISTAKES TO AVOID IN ORDER TO SUCCEED IN ITS CONTOURING
ESPECIALLY KNOW HOW TO DOSE MAKE-UP PRODUCTS
One of the biggest pitfalls to avoid with this makeup technique is of course the mask effect. The most important thing to do before starting is to achieve a perfect dosage of products. Indeed, if you force too much on foundation or other products, you may indeed attract all eyes on you, but certainly not for the reasons why you wanted to go out with this particular makeup. I therefore advise you to practice a lot until you have mastered the right dosages.
ESPECIALLY TO REMAIN SOBER IN YOUR MAKE-UP
Wanting to look overly perfect at all costs can contribute to giving your contouring an unwanted effect. Just as it is important to dose makeup products correctly, it is also important to know how to choose the right shade. It is therefore important to know how to play with shades, neither too light nor too dark, for an impeccable result. In my opinion, the best thing to do would be to seek the advice of a professional in the field so that you can be guided in choosing the shades that best suit you.
ABOVE ALL BE YOURSELF
Your makeup, once finished, should not make you feel as if you see someone other than yourself in your mirror. Be careful, this does not always mean that your make-up is a failure. However, you will agree with me that it would be very unpleasant in the long run to hear yourself constantly repeat “oh, I didn’t recognize you”. It’s true that contouring can correct facial imperfections, but not to the point of passing for someone else. You will just have to keep in mind that the person you need to enhance is nothing other than yourself, and for that you will have to properly master the features of your face.
THINK OF CARRYING OUT YOUR MAKE-UP IN THE MOST FAVOURABLE CONDITIONS POSSIBLE.
Successful make-up, whatever the type, must be practiced in the most optimal conditions of visibility possible. This is also and especially true for contouring. I therefore advise you to make sure that your bathroom or your make-up area is properly lit, so that you can have a clear view of what you are doing on your face.
WHAT TO REMEMBER?
Contouring is a make-up technique that requires a great mastery of the smallest gestures that go into its realization. It is therefore generally necessary to be able to enhance your face, without transforming your features.
My advice is that you take the time to train. It is not at all easy to succeed with this make-up on the first try. So try as many times as you can until you get the best possible result. Get advice from the right people if possible.
For my part, I will always be at your disposal to give you the necessary tips to help you succeed in your contouring.
