Contouring Mistakes you May be Making

Contouring is one of those things that can be difficult to figure out. It is still sort of new in the world of makeup, and it is a technique that is different for each face shape. There are tons of ways to make easy contouring mistakes, even when following a tutorial. Here are a few common mistakes to avoid so your contouring game can go to the next level.

  1. Using the wrong shade: The most natural-looking contour should be about two shades darker than your skin tone. Going any darker can look too drastic.
  2. Using shimmery tones: A contour should look like a natural shadow, so you should use a matte color.
  3. Not blending: Make sure to look at your contour in different lighting to make sure you blend, no one likes harsh lines!
  4. Applying too much: Not every area of the face needs contouring. All face shapes are different, so different faces will want to highlight different features. When it comes to contouring, less is more.

Keep calm and contour!
