How to do Contouring Makeup like Kim Kardashian – Step By Step guide by Makeup Like A Pro

 

Happy Friday everybody! Did you have a good week? I hope that you’ve enjoyed my posts and stuff this week – I’ve loved writing them for you all again!  What are your plans for the weekend? You got a busy one planned? I’m out this evening for a very good friends birthday so it’s gonna be quite a glam evening – hair, makeup, the full monte :)

Contouring Makeup

Contouring is something that ill be paying particular attention to… To my surprise, A LOT of women entirely miss this step out of their makeup routine.  It’s surprising really because a lot of women wear a full face of foundation daily which effectly creates a blank canvas.  And a blank canvas is by definition, without any shape. So by default, your face becomes almost shapeless – well, angle-less anyway

By adding contouring back in you’re adding back in those areas of definition. Simple right?

Contouring with Makeup

These are your key areas of definition you should be keeping in mind

  1. cheeks
  2. forehead
  3. nose
  4. jawline
  5. Chin
  6. Temples

Cast your mind back to school when you used light and dark to create shapes. That’s the basic premise of contouring. Think of it as a 2 pronged approach, which adds 3 dimensions to your face! Anything light stand out because anything light comes towards you

So you’ll need a dark powder and a highlighter. There are many ways to contour but the one I explain below uses a very dark powder and a light cream foundation for blending and you’re going to be blending the colours out so you can be quite flexible with what you use

For the dark powder I use MAC powder in Taupe for a lot of my on-screen and personal contouring but you can use anything dark that compliments your skin tone.  Stila Face Contouring Powder Trio Pallette is nice

For the highlighter any light powder / foundation / illuminator that suits your particular skin tone.  A shimmer cream often gives a nice finish but can look a bit odd if too much of your face is illuminated so be careful with how you use it but on the flip side can create more of an evening feel.  Luminizers are great too – smash box in prism is pretty cool.  Benefit moon beam is good if you want a liquid one – again be careful as its shimmery.  Kett cream foundation works really really well as its a cream foundation so gives a very natural finish

Ill be doing another YouTube video on Contouring to show you how so keep your eye out

Then you simply start by:

Using the cream foundation to illuminate your
  1. forehead – between your brows
  2. down the bridge of your nose
  3. chin
  4. under eye to top of cheek bones

Then with your dark powder start contouring

  1. under cheekbones
  2. along jawline
  3. outside corner of eye into temples
  4. temples
  5. a stripe down each side of your nose

 

Using a foundation brush and a foundation colour which is one tone darker than your natural skin tone, blend both the light and dark together!

It will leave just enough of the light and dark to give an overall appearance of contouring naturally

Voila!
