We’ve answered some of the most searched questions when it comes to beauty essentials in your makeup bag!

 

Let’s start with the basics…

What is contour in makeup?

Contouring is a technique used to sculpt and add dimension to your face.

This is done by using makeup that is slightly lighter or darker than your natural skin tone.

The addition of contouring makeup products creates the effect of shadow and light within your beauty look.

 

Is contour applied before or after foundation?

A tricky one, especially after recent beauty trends and celebrity MUA techniques.

Originally contouring would be done after foundation and concealer but you can do what works best for you.

 

What makeup should I buy for contouring?

Cream, liquid and stick contour can be applied on top of foundation, simply blend and set with a face powder.

If you prefer all products to be powder then aim for a bronzer a shade or two lighter/darker than your skin tone.
