You can’t be a Kardashian wannabe (as much of the Internet accuses me of being), if you don’t contour your face. In five minutes, you can give yourself a facelift and lose five/ten pounds with contouring tricks. I use two key tools for contouring. I use the Anastasia Contour Kit when I’ve got time to doll up.
I use Tarte’s The Sculptor contour pen when I’m in a rush or want a dewier look. I often used the pen on the Bachelor girls when they wanted me to do their contouring.
First thing’s first. You need to know what parts of your face to highlight and what parts you want to contour. As you probably know there’s a zillion YouTube tutorials on this and I could add to that number and make one myself if demand is high enough. I taught myself to contour off face maps like this one.
I like this “face map” because it’s relatively simple compared to others. I’ve always been a visual learner. Below are images both Anastasia and Tarte have made available on their respective websites to help teach you how to use their products. Print it all out and put in in your vanity or makeup bag to guide you before you become a contour pro!
As a true pisces, I live in a magical and delusional land in my head. In this world romances unfold the way they do in romantic comedies, everything at Sephora is free, Shake Shake burgers are a diet food, and we have the capability to clone Harry Styles.
In real life (what's that?), I spend my days pondering how Kylie Jenner's face changed so much. I'm a beauty junkie and pop culture-loving wedding videographer and freelance journalist. I have a Princess Jasmine complex. I am a Fanson (die hard Hanson fan). I enjoy belting old Celine Dion songs.
Please take everything I say seriously (I have my Masters in journalism from Syracuse University), but not too seriously (Cosmo is my favorite publication.)
