Beginner's Guide to Applying CONTOUR and BRONZER

20 MARCH 2023

For a beginner, in particular, contouring and bronzer might be difficult concepts to grasp. 
Contorting and bronzing can both be done using the same tools in the same location.

With contouring, you may define your jawline, make your nose look smaller, and emphasize your high cheekbones. 
When we apply foundation, our facial structure can be lost, which is why we use contouring to restore some structures.


Everybody has a different face shape, so contouring should be done while keeping this in mind. 
From where your ear meets your cheekbones, start applying your contouring product to the hollows of your cheeks. 
You should do this when using a cream foundation stick (cream contour) or a darker concealer (liquid contour).

For contouring with powder, the location is the same. 
Use a rounder brush while contouring with powder to prevent hard lines from being made and to ensure smooth application.

Contrary to bronzing, contouring aims to give the face either delicate or dramatically carved proportions. 
Warmth is added to the face using a bronzer.

Because it restores your skin’s warmth and gives it a skin-like appearance, bronzer is essential. 
Your hairline, nasal bridge, temples, and cheekbones are all parts of your face where the sun naturally shines.

Do you see how these two steps could be interpreted incorrectly?

Bronzer generally comes in three different form factors: powders, creams, and liquids. 
If you can’t locate a bronzer, you can use concealer, but it needs to be warm. 
Use a brush that is less thick and more rounded for a powder bronzer. 
For applying cream or liquid bronzer, use a brush that is more angled.

It can be a little tricky, but it’s important to know how to match your makeup to your unique facial structure. 
This is only a suggestion for you to remember. 
I sincerely hope that this post gave you the clarity you sorely needed.
