These days, there are so many products and techniques to help you achieve the perfect contour--from foundation to concealer sticks and bronzing powders, mastering the art can take a little bit of guesswork. If you’ve just about given up on the contouring trend out of frustration, then you haven’t tried the Pro Contour Palette from Frankie Rose Cosmetics. This beautifully pigmented and easy to use palette is making contouring so much easier. Whether you’re a novice or a master of makeup, this is one palette you’re gonna love.
The first step to achieving a perfect contour is prepping your face. Apply a small amount of Frankie Rose’s Prime Addiction and let it set for a minute or two. Using a beauty.blender sponge, apply your favorite Frankie Rose foundation and go back to cover any blemishes with your favorite Frankie Rose concealer. Once you’re done prepping your face, it’s time to get that Instagram-worthy contour!
You’ll want to begin by correcting and highlighting the area under your eyes and above your cheekbones. Doing this will instantly erase a tired appearance and give your skin a luminous glow.
A- CORRECT: Apply “Mellow Yellow” directly below the eyes,
blending downward toward cheekbones to hide dark under
B- HIGHLIGHT: Using a powder or blush brush, apply “Doll Face”
to cheekbones, bridge of the nose, center of the forehead,
and center of the chin.
Next, you’ll begin the contouring process to define your beautiful facial features. Be light-handed with your makeup brush, as building your contour will be easier this way.
C- CONTOUR: Select a shade one or two shades darker than your
skin tone: “Whisper,” “Heated,” or “Tempting.” Apply the
shade along the hairline, down the sides of the nose, and
the hollow part of the cheekbone, blending outward
toward the ears.
A great tip to getting a great contour is blending, blending, blending. A perfect, photo-worthy contour never shows signs of harsh lines, so make sure you really take your time to blend out your work.
To complete your contoured look, lightly dust dust "Sultry Glow" lightly over your cheekbones.
E-Flaunt your GLOW!
Happy contouring, beauties! XO
