Do you have an oval face? Then this is for you! Here’s how to contour oval face with Seint contour so you look your best!
What is Contour?
Contour is an ashy brown makeup product that mimics a shadow on your face. When applied properly, it adds shape and dimension to your face.
Most women apply foundation on their face to even out their skin tone. But by doing so, it erases the natural shadows that are faces cast. By erasing those shadows, our faces look flat and lifeless. Contour adds life back into our faces and helps us look youthful! It chisels out our cheekbones and helps us look more feminine.
This is the best cream contour! It applies and blends like a dream!
Where to Apply Contour
You can decide how much contour you want to apply to your face, but here are the main places to apply contour:
- Cheekbones- Find your cheekbone on the middle of your face. Apply contour right along it. Start at your ear near the hairline and stop at about the outer corner of your eye. Then blend upward.
- Hairline- Apply contour along your hair on your forehead. Blend into your hair.
- Nose- Apply contour on the top sides of your nose to give it a slimmer appearance.
- Jawline- Apply contour along your jawline and blend downward.
Contour Tips for Oval Face
It doesn’t matter what face shape you have, the places you contour are the same for everyone. But if you have an oval face, then here are a few tips to help your face look fuller:
- When applying contour along your cheekbones, instead of applying contour in a vertical direction, apply it more in a horizontal direction. By angling the contour sideways a little, you are giving your face a fuller appearance.
- Instead of drawing a straight line from your ear to your outer corner of your eye, draw a Nike swoop. It will give your cheek a lift similar to a push-up bra =)
- When applying contour along your forehead, come in down more from the top to help your forehead look shorter.
- When applying blush, apply it on the apples of your cheeks. This will make your cheeks look fuller and rounder.
- If you have jowls or excess skin along your jawline, apply contour right above the jawline to help chisel it out more.
