Contouring is a tricky skill to master. It’s all about applying the products at the right angles to highlight your best natural features. Killer cheekbones, anyone? Contouring with cream formulas like concealer can look obvious and unnatural so I like to stick with powder formulas.
This is Charlotte Tilbury’s ‘Filmstar Bronze and Glow’ sculpting powder (€65). Here, we are provided with a beautiful champagne coloured highlighter and a nice matte bronzer. The formula is buildable and blends well so it’s suitable for even the most pale of us.
While contouring, a good brush is essential – I recommend a Real Technique’s contouring brush. For a daytime look – I start by applying the bronzer to the hollow underneath my cheekbone. Drag the brush directly from your ear and follow the hollow. It’s that simple. Blend upwards.
I like to finish with a dusting of translucent powder and a pop of blush.
Have you got any of your own contouring tips?
