Contouring = enhancing your features.

There's a good reason why contouring is a current beauty trend, which can also be achieved with natural skin care. Contouring brings out your beauty. You just need to see it. You don't need much experience – see our contouring tips for beginners – or loads of contouring products. All you need is a suitable Foundation that gently evens out your complexion; a contouring Powder or Blush in your preferred shade; a Highlighter to create shimmering accents; a Light Reflecting Concealer and Bronzing Powder to play with light and shadow; and last but not least, the willingness to have fun and experiment. You’re ready to contour!

 

Round face? Want to shape your nose? Then you need contouring!

Contouring enhances your features and conceals minor “flaws”. Which parts of the face you choose to contour and how is as individual as your face shape. As a general rule, light tones highlight areas of the face, while darker tones make them less prominent. A round face, for example, looks narrower if you apply the darker shade from the outer edges of the forehead, across the temples and down to the chin. Then use the Highlighter to accentuate the forehead, bridge of the nose, chin and eyelids. To create a narrower looking nose, simply apply the Highlighter to the bridge of the nose. There you have it. You'll soon be contouring like a pro!

 

Contouring for beginners: three tips.

CContouring is much easier than you might think. Follow these three tips if you haven't quite mastered contouring yet.

Tip 1: use a suitable shade

  • The shade you apply to the darker parts should only be slightly darker than your skin tone, so your make-up looks natural.

Tip 2: stick to the right order

  • Don't combine creamy and powdery textures. Allow a liquid Foundation to absorb well first, before adding powder or blusher.

Tip 3: don't overdo it

  • Of course it’s okay to conceal minor “flaws”, but don't be harsh on yourself and try not to change your entire face shape. That would be a shame.

We hope you enjoy playing around with light and shadow. Happy contouring!
