Contouring and highlighting are like chocolate syrup and vanilla ice cream: best together. Contouring is the most confusing beauty technique of all time. Yet, it is the trend that you need to master this year! You watch so many YouTube tutorials where girls are practically transforming their faces with diagonal lines of full-coverage foundations, and then about 10 minutes later, they emerge looking like an entirely different person. Here is a secret: it is not impossible! You just need to know how to contour your face according to your face shape!
For this particular face shape, you need to contour under the cheekbones and lengthen the look of a narrow hairline. Also, contour the sides of forehead, creating the illusion of a forehead that is as wide as the cheekbones. As for the highlighting, you need to focus on outside edges with a small contour in the centre.
You should contour along your hairline to create the illusion of a lower hairline, under your chin to make your face appear a little rounder and the area below your cheekbones. As for the highlighting, concentrate on your eyes in an upside-down triangle shape to brighten your eyes.
Contour the sides of your forehead just slightly to make your hairline appear a little narrower. Highlight the middle of your forehead and the middle of your chin and under your eyes and along your brow bone to brighten your eye area.
Contour the sides of your forehead and along your temples, the area below your cheekbones, and then curving down to your jawline to lengthen your face. Do not forge to highlight your forehead and the middle of your chin.
Contour the sides of your forehead to make your hairline appear narrower. The area below your cheekbones starting from your ears and ending in the middle of your cheeks should also be contoured. Widen the appearance of eyes and cheekbones by sweeping a lighter shade of foundation in a triangle between your eyes with your blending brush. Then, accentuate cheeks for a rounder looking visage.
