Bronze, Highlight, Contour Face Mapping

 

WONDERING how to get that healthy sun-kissed glow on your cheeks? It’s amazing what a bit of blush, bronzer and highlighter can do to accentuate, slim and define your features.

Map Your Face!

Blush, bronzing and highlighting is all about location, location, location. Knowing where to apply these products is essential for achieving a sculpted and defined look.             

Knowing where to apply what product where is key to giving your face the “lift” it needs.

 

Bronzing / Contouring

For beginners, make a “fish-lips face” by sucking in your cheeks to find the hollows of your cheek. Using a small fluffy powder brush or one that is elongated, buff the product into the hollow of your cheek in circular motions. Don’t go too heavy and make sure to buff away the harsh lines – you want a subtle indentation, not a full-on dark line.

Other places that you can contour include your jaw-line, the sides of your nose for a slimmer nose, your temples, as well as  cleavage.

 

Blush

Blush is great for revitalising complexion that is dull, helping you look fresh-faced and alert.

Start applying from the apples of your cheeks and buff upwards toward the tip of your ear. It should be applied above the contour of your cheekbones and below the highlight. Rounding it off to emphasize the apples of your cheeks makes for a beautiful glow.

Apply blush above the contour of your cheekbones and below the highlight.

Highlighting

 

Using a small fluffy brush, sweep the lighter-than-your-skin-tone powder across the top of your cheek-bones above your blush area, on the bridge of your nose, across the tip of your chin, on the crescent of your lip, below your brow arch; and if you don’t have oily skin, across the middle of your forehead.

Voilà !
