Contouring is a makeup technique used to slim your facial features and accentuate your bone structure. This technique is used and praised univerally, but for me it became a particular favorite during my pregancancy and post pardum. I used it to lessen the appearance of my facial swelling and brighten my undereye circles. As you can see in the image above, this technique can be completed in a few easy steps. and with the NYX wonder stick, your look can be completed in less than five minutes. Use the darker shade- which should be three shades darker than your skin- along your hairline, between the hollows of your cheeks, down the bridge of your nose, and on your jawline. For the lighter shade- which is your highlight- apply to your forehead, the middle of your nose, beneath the eyes and the top of the cheekbones, your laugh line, and just below the hollow of your cheek. Following this, quickly blend together to reduce the appearance of lines, and you’re ready to go!
