Flawless face: How to Contour Step by Step

By  | 

Is everyone contouring without you?  I believe it is time to learn.  Although corrective makeup has been out since forever, thanks to Nicki Minaj and Kim Kardashian, we are all looking to create that effect.  Now everywhere we look, weather it is Internet or TV, our favorite makeup artist are contouring.  Like selfies and brows on fleek, this trend is going nowhere. Everyone is attempting to enhance the cheekbones, and enhance the jawbones, which requires a little bit of skill. I am here to tell you that it can be easily achieved in four simple steps.


  1. Draw Your Face- begin by applying contouring dark foundation around the face, under the cheekbone, down the sides of the nose and also the tip. Easiest way to apply, is to start with two foundation sticks, if you find yourself confused start with two shades of foundation sticks are the easiest.
  2. Apply Concealer– begin applying under the eyes, above the brow, down the center of the nose, and on the chin.
  3. Then blend- contouring is all about blending.  Add a little foundation to your brush and blend away all hard lines, and then blend some more.
  4. Translucent powder– take a small concealer brush, apply translucent powder under the eye, side nostrils, and on top of the cheek bones. Blend lightly, and set with setting spray.

Tools need for this look:

Contouring Kit





Blending brush

Highlighter/ Illuminator

Translucent powder

I have always been in love with all things beauty. From a little girl I would say that one day I would be a Cosmetologist. I did it, I became a Licensed Cosmetologist in 2006. I have learned so much about how to wear makeup, how to style the hair, and how to maintain the overall health of hair that I decided to create a blog. Being beautiful creates confidence, and flawless hair and makeup can help us all create that image we want to be. I want to help you step out of the box, try new makeup looks, and new hair ideas, new skincare regimens to make life better.
