The way to Contour Your Face: Bronzer Placement for a Sculpted Look

Bronzer Placement for Contouring

After I was first requested to put in writing a weblog submit on sculpting with PureBronze Matte Bronzer, I used to be slightly apprehensive. I’d by no means absolutely mastered contouring as a talent, having spent years making an attempt to form my spherical, pale face with bronzers that had been all the time too orange for my pores and skin tone.

Fortunately, I knew the individual to show to for knowledgeable steering: Shawn, our Director of Artistry and Schooling, who graciously supplied to offer me a tutorial on the best way to create a pure sculpted look.

 The Lesson

How to Contour with Highlighter

When sculpting the face, Shawn recommends highlighting first after which contouring, as that makes it simpler to inform the place that you must add definition. To focus on, select a shade that could be a few shades lighter than the pores and skin tone or use a product that has luminosity to create the same lifted impact.

As soon as the highlighter is mixed, apply the contour with a contour brush to the areas of the face you wish to draw again. Frequent bronzer placement areas embody: alongside the hairline, within the hollows of the cheeks, alongside the nostril and alongside the jawline. Professional tip: When sculpting the jaw line, keep in mind to start behind the ear so there’s not an apparent line the place the contour begins.  

Then, while you’ve achieved the specified stage of sculpting, the important thing to creating all of it look pure is to mix every little thing. Completely. Preserve the areas which are nearer to the hairline darker and step by step mix the colour out extra along with your contour brush as you progress in the direction of the center of the face. 


How to Contour Your Face with Makeup

To prepared my face for make-up, I prime my pores and skin with Easy Affair® Brightening Face Primer. Subsequent, I dot Glow Time Professional™ BB Cream in GT1 on my cheeks, brow, chin and nostril and shortly mix it in with the Mixing/Contouring Brush. (I discover slightly of this product goes a great distance and it dries down shortly so it’s key to start out mixing ASAP.)

Relating to highlighters, I wish to go luminous vs matte so I add some Lively Mild® Underneath-eye Concealer in 1 to the excessive factors of my face, mixing it in with the Mixing/Contouring Brush. For further glow, I high it off with the Glow Time® Highlighter Stick in Solstice.

I sweep PureBronze Matte Bronzer in Mild(Shawn’s advice because it’s not a very warm-toned bronzer), beneath my cheekbones round my brow and beneath my jawline, mixing with the Mixing/Contouring Brush.

Since I’ve a rounder face, I skip including blush to the apples of my cheeks and as a substitute apply Glow Time® Blush Stick in Balmy from my temple, alongside the highest of the cheek bone to the middle of my cheek.

I add PureBrow® Precision Pencil in Darkish Brown to my eyebrows for definition, sweep the shimmery rose gold shade from the Ravishing PurePressed® Eye Shadow Trio throughout my eyelids and lengthen my lashes with Longest Lash® Thickening and Lengthening Mascara in Black Ice.

I end the look with a swipe of our NEW ColorLuxe Hydrating Cream Lipstick in Sorbet for a refined trace of coral.

Wanting within the mirror, I’m pleasantly shocked to see that my face does look sculpted and lifted in a pure method. I additionally don’t look orange. (Large shoutout to Shawn and his Sculpting 101 Contour Information.)
