Cosmopolitan tried had a professional makeup artist apply a jaw contour onto 4 different women and photographed the amazing results. Use these 3 tips to achieve the same results.
The placement of your contour is critical to achieving a good result. Make sure the lines of bronze aren’t too high or too low on your cheekbone or jaw. To find the sweet spot, blend as close to your bone and in an up wards direction.
The key to making your contour look realistic is blending. If you simply paint on the bronze without blending, you’re going to look like a crazy person. For daytime, stick to a sheer layer of bronze and build up carefully.
The last thing you need to consider before attempting to contour is the type of product you use. Steer clear of anything with shimmer, you want products that are matte and not too much darker than your natural skin tone.
