Tips To Apply Contour Face Makeup Like A Total Pro

Let’s just come straight to the point. There might be thousands of makeup tutorials out there, but learning how to apply contour face like a pro is a tricky job. If you are still struggling with contouring your face and achieving that Kylie Jenner look, we are here for you!    Beauty experts at WomenWire will walk you through the process from start to finish. We will explain what makeup brushes you will need, the kind of colors you will need to choose, and where exactly you should place your contour face makeup products.    Let’s jump right into it!    Steps to get the contour of your dreams!    Step 1  Contouring your face  Before you begin with contouring, you need to ensure that your foundation is all set and in place. Set your foundation makeup with a translucent powder.   Now, feel free to work with any contour face makeup product you are comfortable with. We are going to be using a powder contour to explain the process.    Pro Tip: While selecting the right color for your contour face makeup, choose a color on the neutral or cooler side. This way, the color will actually mimic a shadow.    Now, coming back to the technique. Use a contouring brush and start applying the product to your temples. Work your way up in a circular motion, simultaneously with sweeping motions.    Ensure you are working the product into your hairline as well to avoid all kinds of harsh lines on your face.    Coming to your cheekbones, the rule of thumb is to place the color directly underneath them. Start by using an angular contouring brush and move the product towards the corners of your mouth. The closer your product gets to the edge of your mouth, the sharper your face will look.    But, of course, for obvious reasons. Do not exactly go from ears to lips with your contour. There should be a gap between the contour face makeup and the edge of your mouth.    If you would like to start contouring other parts of your face, you can use the same brush. For instance, if you are contouring your nose after your cheekbones, you can do so with the same brush. Just hold the bristles really together for that well-defined look. Create two parallel lines down your nose, going into the creases around your eyelids. Again, this is completely optional. You can also add a little contouring around your chin to create that “V” look you are aiming for.    Pro Tip: Little goes a long way. Don’t go overboard with contour makeup.    Step 2  Placing your highlighter When looking to highlight your face after contouring it, pick out a product with a similar undertone as yours. Additionally, you should choose a highlighter that is one to two shades lighter in comparison to your foundation.    To apply the highlighter correctly, use a more precise contouring brush. Place the highlighter towards the center of your forehead, lightly, just dusting the brush against your forehead. The same goes for the top of your cheekbones and then sweeps the same brush without dipping it back again around your jawline. All this should be done ever so slightly.    If you have contoured your nose as well, place the highlighter in between the shaded region.    Step 3 Bronzing up your look Whether you are looking for a just-out-of-a-tanning salon glow or are looking to carve out your special features, bronzer does everything!    For that subtle summertime look, sweep a shimmery bronzing shade around your temples, sweeping down to your cheekbones. Then bring your bronzer to your chin from the bottom. Follow these three steps and move your brush around these three places on your face in a 3-shaped motion.    You will get an instant beachy, sun-tanned glow!    Pro tip: If you want a noticeable glow, dust your bronzer onto the tip of your nose as well. Sun hits here directly!    Step 4 Finish it off with some blush  The final step to finishing off your look is by applying some blush. Blush offers you a major dimension. You can easily fake that dazzling and glowy flush by grabbing any blush of your choice, dipping a fluffy brush into it, and working it around the apples of your cheek. Work your way up to your hairline as well.   From top to bottom, your cheeks must read - Highlighter, blush, and contour!    Contouring according to your face shape     Contouring is not going to go anywhere for a while! Once you know the basics of contouring, it is now time to understand the right way to use contour face makeup as per your face shape.    Of course, contouring is not a one-size-fits-all kind of practice.   Determining your face shape is, therefore, an integral part of contouring. There are four major kinds of face shapes - round, oval, square, and heart.    To determine your face shape, simply go to your nearest mirror with an old kohl pencil or a lip liner. Your hair must be pulled back for this activity. Start outlining your reflection on the mirror. Follow the outlines of your entire face. Once you have made a rough outline on the mirror, observe the shape that comes out. You will get a close enough idea of your face shape.    Round Face Round face shapes often lose their definition after the base makeup is applied. Therefore contouring round-shaped faces needs to be full of shadows and adding angles.    Accentuate the cheekbones on a rounder face. Contour just below the cheekbones. Make that iconic duck face to really get that shape correct. Contour along with your forehead and temples as well, in the form of the letter “C.”    Round-faced beauties should not be shy of a highlighter!    Pro tip: For round-faced people, eyebrows are key. Angled, arched brows bring more dimension to the face and break up the curviness. Experiment with your brow pencil and have fun!      Oval Face Just like the round face type, an oval face type also comes with a rounded jawline. The only difference here between these two face shapes is the elongation of the face. Bella Hadid has an oval face. The forehead for oval face shapes brings out the widest areas.    For oval face-shaped beauties, rely on blush to do wonders for you. Blush will add that depth and dimension you need. Bounce your blush around the apples of your cheeks and below your chin to get that well-rounded look that brings your best features forward.    An oval face is already pretty symmetrical, so you can easily focus on contouring under your cheekbones. You are good to go!    Heart Face To get a clear view of this face type, imagine Reese Witherspoon. She has a wider forehead and has a pointy and angular jawline.    Apply your highlighter along the bridge of your nose, the top of your cheeks, and around your upper jawline. For the contour, sweep it across the sides of your forehead to minimize its overall width.    The jawline of such a face shape is already defined well. So, heart-faced beauties will only need a touch of contour face makeup below their chins. Blend the contour correctly, add that touch of bronzer and blush, and you are all set to hit the town!    Square Face If your face shape resembles Katie Holmes’ face shape, your cheekbones, temples, as well as your jawline will already have defined angles. They are also pretty symmetrical and equally placed away from the center of your face.    Contouring a square face shape requires softening the edges. You need to work on rounding up your angular features. So, contour around the perimeters of your face and blend it nicely to get that natural look.    Pro Tip: For a square face shape, you need to remember highlighting only around your forehead, chin, and the bridge of your nose. You can also add a touch of highlighter under your eyes and right below the corners of your mouth for some fun.    So, there you have it! Start practicing the right ways to apply contour face makeup like a total pro. You have all the techniques, and your face shape is set out for you!  

6 Ultimate Ways To Apply Foundation Makeup In 2022

How to apply foundation to make it look like a second skin? Well, here is your guide!    What are Parisian makeup artists' top secrets to applying foundation makeup? We bring you all the secrets. All you need to start is by executing everything without any traces. If you want people to say "your skin looks amazing" and not "your foundation looks great," execution is the key. Finding these compliments is half the battle won. Once you have that Houdini-looking skin, ensure everything vanishes into your complexion. It is incredibly crucial. These six top tips on applying foundation makeup come directly from the best Parisian, in-demand makeup artists, who explain ways to achieve that glass-like, elusive second-skin finish.   1. Start by Creating a Glowy Canvas   The first thing is a complete no-brainer. You have heard it everywhere. Ensure your skin is clean, refined, and moisturized. However, people don't really tell you that it is essential to keep your skin supercharged in terms of glow. So, to achieve that glowing canvas, start by putting on a hydrating mask. Follow this step with a facial massage. Not just any facial massage, a lymphatic facial massage will work wonders for your skin.    You need to begin with a hydrating sheet mask that targets your specific skin type. A sheet mask with rose extracts can help you combat oiliness if your skin is oily. A sheet mask with aloe extracts will help combat that extra dryness on your face. And if your face is suffering from a lot of inflammation, go for a sheet mask with tea-tree extracts.    Once you are done with the mask, for at least 15 minutes, massage the leftover moisturizer/serum from the mask gently. Now begin to apply your moisturizer to your skin to boost your facial circulation. It also helps reduce your overall puffiness. Massaging these products gently helps create a natural flush that makes your skin truly awake and glowy.    Moisturizers like the Embryolisse Lait-Creme concentrate, Clinique 72 hours moisture surge, Tatcha the water creme, or the Tata Harper Water-lock moisturizer work wonders for all skin types.    2. Prep Your Face With a Primer    What bothers both amateur and professional makeup artists is the question - to prime or not to prime? It has concerned everyone at some point in their makeup routines, even us!    Some makeup artists usually tend to skip this step entirely because they are opting for a look that relies on as little product as possible. However, priming is essential. Despite the fact your skin is hydrated and moisturized, you need to give yourself the chance to really glow. If applied correctly, primers tend to prolong the life and longevity of your foundation makeup for all-day budge-proof wear.    After hydrating and moisturizing, ensure you are wearing a primer. Opt for a primer with an anti-shine formula if you have a shiny and oily t-zone. It can help target all your hotspots like your hairline, forehead, sides of your nose, and around your mouth. It even offers you a sheer, luminous glow above your cheekbones.    3. Apply a primer with your fingertips, tapping into your skin gently   Laura Mercier Pure Canvas Primer, Fenty Beauty Pro Filter Instant Retouch Primer, Nyx Shine Killer Primer, and the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Blur Primer are some of the best in the market!    4. Apply your Foundation From the Center and Move Outward      Only apply foundation makeup where it is extremely necessary. You do not have to apply it all over your face. Start with a few small dots around your face, where you actually want it to be targeted. Makeup artists also suggest that one needs to start around the center of their face, and then blend it towards the cheek, out.    Another crucial part of your face makeup is applying specifically to the area around your mouth, prone to yellow undertones as well as shadows. To combat discoloration around your mouth, you can also use a concealer. But hey, we are talking about keeping foundation makeup to a minimum to make it look like a second skin!    To make sure your foundation looks extremely natural, you can skip the bridge of your nose and let your natural skin and freckles and all the imperfections really show through. You can even skip applying foundation around the corners of your nostrils; it is here that the pigment tends to cling tightly to all the dry patches.    Some foundations that offer good but natural coverage are Estée Lauder Futurist Hydra Rescue Moisturizing Foundation SPF 45, Pat McGrath Labs Sublime Perfection Foundation, Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation, NARS Sheer Glow Foundation, and Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Perfect Glow Flawless Foundation.   5. Buff the foundation! You are not a painter.    No matter what your choice of tool is, you really need to start buffing the foundation makeup into your skin and not paint it all over. Yes, your face is a canvas, but you are really not Monet!    Whether you are using a foundation brush, a stippling brush, your fingers, or a beauty blender, buffing is the key!    If you use a sponge or a beauty blender, bounce it across your skin. The painting will do you no good. Buffing or bouncing will help build better coverage, smoothen your foundation, and avoid all those harsh streaky lines across your face.    A few tools you can use to apply foundation better are - Beautyblender The Original, Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, NYX can't stop won't stop foundation brush, Morphe Deluxe Buffer Brush, and Sonia Kashuk Essential Flat-Top Foundation Brush.    Pro Tip: If you have dry skin, you should stick to beauty blenders and makeup sponges. They do not tug at your skin like stippling brushes and other foundation buffing brushes. This way, the foundation does not cling to your dry patches, and flakes are not visible around your face, making everything look better and natural.    6. Strobe around your high points    Strobe around your face, wherever the sun actually hits! For a better dimension to your face and that natural sheen, blend a strobing cream or highlighter to the high planes of your face that are bound to catch light naturally. The first places you should be doing it are your temples, cheekbones, and Cupid's bow.    Powder foundations are great for people with an oilier skin type, but if not applied correctly or a cheap product is applied, it can look chalky and fake. Rather, you can opt for a strober that comes in a creamy, balm-based texture to make your makeup look dewy and glowy. It almost looks like you are not wearing any product on your skin.    Some of the best strobing creams and liquid highlighters in the market are - Mac strobe cream, Kevyn Aucoin glass glow liquid illuminator, Fenty beauty match stix shimmer skinstick, Westman Atelier lit up highlighter stick, Hourglass vanish flash highlighting stick, benefit high beam liquid highlighter, and Glossier haloscope.    Blot all the way!    Once all these steps are done, soak up all the excess oil from your foundation makeup and other products underneath with blotting paper. Gently blot around your face, lightly tapping on all the target points. Then, apply a featherweight translucent powder to really lock in your foundation and prevent any unwanted sheen.    Use the powder with a brush to apply it extremely lightly across your face. It should get to only the areas you really think get the shiniest towards the end of the day. Your skin should look natural, silky, smooth, and even-toned by the end of all these steps. The only light coming in should come in the right amounts from the dewiness within your skin layers now.    The final step - spritz it all away with a makeup fixer. Keep the spray at least 5-6 inches away from your face, close your eyes, and spray in generous amounts. But, here, what we mean by generous is to not drench your face with a lot of makeup fixer water! It will make your makeup drip. Just spray in moderation. 3-4 pumps should be enough!    Some of the best translucent powders available in the market today are - Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder, Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder, Bare Minerals Original Mineral Veil Pressed Setting Powder, Clinique Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder, and Hourglass Cosmetics Veil Translucent Setting Powder.   Some of the best makeup fixers available in the market - Queen of Hungary Mist, Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Setting Spray, Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Setting + Refreshing Spray, MAC Fix+ Magic Radiance, Morphe Continuous Setting Mist, Benefit The Porefessional Super Setter Pore-Minimizing Setting Spray, Hourglass Veil Soft Focus Setting Spray, and Nyx Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray.    And that is how you really come about executing an unbelievably perfect second-skin! Follow these steps to really guide your makeup as a part of your face and not separate!   

7 Best Makeup Tips, Trends, and Inspiration For 2022

And just like that, the winter breeze is set to bring in a happy new year!    2022 is just around the corner. Everything will be a new slate, fresh and vibrant. For those of you who are not prepared to fill in that new slate with new things, do not panic! Your new year can be exciting as well.    As cliche as I may sound right now, your new year is completely yours to overtake! You can make whatever choice you want, whether it is picking up a new hobby or trying out a new makeup trend. 2022 is your perfect chance to change your lifestyle and signature looks. You can experiment with new products and new makeup tips, no matter how many are on your mind.    As our planet starts to heal from the aftermath of the global pandemic, you can pretty much do whatever you want to as far as your looks are concerned! After almost two years of limitations, beauty can be anything in 2022, but limited! It is going to be full of so many wonderful possibilities for everyone.    So, get ready to rethink all the makeup tips and trends again. You are going to be bombarded with glossy sheens, geometric looks, and brighter shades in your makeup. Makeup trends and forecasts for 2022 are going to be super fun and bold. But with all the options, it can be somewhat overwhelming to understand where to start.    WomenWire is trying to narrow it down for you with our 7 basic makeup tips that will work in your favor this year!    Scroll down to find the one you love!    1. Light, Luminous Makeup Base     Simple and easy makeup tips are always welcome! Let’s start off our inspiration list for the new year with an easy look. They are always in style, which is why skin-minimalism will never be out of style in 2022 as well.    Everyone’s priorities since the pandemic have changed. People are now going for light makeup bases instead of the cakey, layered, powder-loaded looks they were opting for like most Instagram models.    People are now wearing less complexion in general than ever before.    It’s a great step because who wants to spend 20-30 minutes just blending their foundation evenly every single day? (Thank heavens for this trend because I am still looking for someone to revive my arm from 2019, still going on blending that base!)   So, we are going to be wearing less foundation and more tinted foundations. Whatever is going to be easy to apply will be welcome. Luminous skin tones, not matte, but dewy, and something in between will be the trend for 2022.    2. #Throwback Lips!   So, the latest update on 2022 makeup tips and trends is that we are welcoming the ‘90s favorite, glossy lips back.    Yes, they were worn by almost all the supermodels in the ‘90s and are ready to be adorned this new year again. Clinique’s Almost Lip Range in Black Honey, launched earlier in the ‘70s, was revamped recently. The shade has been selling like hotcakes, all thanks to its sudden resurgence on TikTok.    Neutral, reddish-brown shades are cropping up in various other brands like Ogee and Glossier as an alternative to Black Honey by Clinique.    People are being drawn again to these sheer, minimalistic shades. So, while we take a seat to ride to the future, our lips are going back to the ‘90s!    3. Glossy Lips!      Juicy textures are going to rule the year. With reddish-brown hues already taking over our lives in almost glossy tones, lip glosses will also be seen making a comeback. Opting for shiny finishes in your lipsticks is the new trend. So we need to calm down and stop raving about the matte finishes as we have been for some time.    But don’t limit yourself to reddish-brown hues for lip glosses. Opt for fun berry shades. Juicy plump lips are the way to go. Make everything wet and shiny, as long as it’s not sticking to your hair. WomenWire’s 2022 makeup tips suggest choosing just a touch of pigment with warm gold shimmers, and you will get that perfect, soft luminous glow this year.    Just open the doors to the glow zone!    4. Fluffy Brows    We have seen our fair share of some really interesting eyebrow trends in the past year and a half. We have been through almost all makeup tips on Google right now for our brows - bleached, slits, color-blocked – been there, done that!    But the one that we are going to be taking with us to the new year is the fluffy disco brows we all love. Disco brows are confident, festive, and grand! Tik-Tok’s viral trendy disco/fluffy brows were first popularized by Megs Cahill. Disco brows are nothing but soap brows. But it is not just soap in there; a little pigment also does this trick right.    The trick is extremely popular, even among some celebs. Halsey’s makeup brand About-Face also dedicated a product to this trend with their Fractal Glitter Brow Gel.    Anastasia also has a great product, minus the pigment, as their brow gel. It is out there! Grab it, and take it with you as you step into the new year.    5. Bold, Graphic Eyes      Statement, bold, graphic eyes will be a great trend this year. So, take all the makeup tips on doing them just perfectly for your New Year’s bash! There are absolutely no rules whatsoever when it comes to doing graphic eyes. You can be as creative as you want to. Opt for bold neon colors, statement eyeliners, draw out patterns, create some negative spaces, do what you feel like doing. Your eyes will be your canvas this year.    Those euphoric, high–impact eyes that are strong and bold are going to be the biggest trend you should look out for this year.    6. Minty-Green Eyes    In case you missed it, green is currently all the rage in the runway shows. It is like a major movement. Now, since all of the makeup tips and trends we have shared so far for 2022 originated from the runway, how can we skip this one?    Runway shows define the trends we will be witnessing in the upcoming year, and this year's Spring/Summer 2022 collection displays green in your eyes. It is often the most ignored color for your eye makeup, but can you blame it?    But a trend is a trend, whether we like it or not! But the color green has some extremely cute variations like lime and mint and even army green. The choices are endless with this color.    You can go for any of these colors. Just sweep it across your lid for that soft, diffused look like watercolors, and you will be in the ranks of the latest trends this year.    7. Sustainable makeup range     Now, we are seeing the damages that we have caused to this planet. It is coming for us in the form of locust storms, hurricanes, climate change (yes, it is real!), and a global pandemic.    With all the protests Gen-Z is doing of late, there is a wide movement towards clean beauty as well. So, if you are serious about following the latest makeup tips and trends for the new year, make sure you are using ethically made makeup.    Charlotte Tilbury has already joined this bandwagon. They are selling out refillable lipsticks. Byredo is doing the same with its refillable brow products. There are also a few makeup companies selling reusable eye masks!    Sustainable packaging, cruelty-free, paraben-free makeup is all the rage for the coming years. It is a great deal of work to do, I agree, but baby steps! These small steps, these incredible innovations, it is something truly exciting and has the potential to lead to something bigger.    The Takeaway So, no matter where your makeup tastes lie, whether on the lower, minimalist spectrum or a higher, flashy, loud spectrum, these trends are surely going to suit you! The year 2022 has something for everyone. These makeup tips will be welcomed by everyone. So, if you support sheer coverage, this is your sign to get that tinted moisturizer and just call it a day! And those of you who want to send out a statement through their eyes, just grab that eyeliner and sweep it across your lids for 30 minutes! No matter what you do, WomenWire salutes you!
