In the world of beauty they are talking so much about this method for some time. Contouring, is just a technique that is used to sculpt the face, to make it look symmetrical and oval.
It is used a lot in photographic sessions, where through the lens and with the corresponding lights, the makeup manages to look natural, but for day, this makeup can be overloaded.
This technique does not apply to all faces in the same way. Depending on the shape of the face and what you want to highlight or disguise, is the form of application. The secret to achieving this, is to mark the points of light and shadow. This will allow you to define its format and stylize it.It is important to remember that the contouring can be done with creamy bases or compact powders. In both cases, it should disappear well so that there are no marked lines and it is more natural. The tones you choose should be the closest to your skin tone.
It is not recommended to use the contouring technique for an event during the day.
To achieve this, two different shades of bases or powders must be applied. The light tone will serve to illuminate and the dark will mark the depth.
