Tips to make a good contouring on a clear skin
There are those who say that contouring is out of fashion but some people still use it to show off a spectacular make-up. We already know the technique but today we are going to focus on the clear skins, since maybe if it is not done well it can offer an unnatural finish. Because it is about playing with lights and shadows but without being noticed too, so let’s see how to get it.
What happens with contouring and light skins?
The fact is that as the contouring uses dark tones to create the effect of makeup if applied on a clear skin can show an artificial result. So what you have to get is that you do not notice those dark lines and that you will achieve by applying well the product in question.
Products you will need
For the contouring you already have clear what you need, right? A base of makeup, a lighter makeup, a darker one and rouge. Choose those special for light skins , as they have a lower intensity and offer a more natural finish with a light coverage.
How to apply the products
First put on the foundation and then, as explained from experts, draw the dark line in the upper area of the forehead, in the temple, under the cheekbones and in the line of the jaw. Also mark the movable eyelid and the nostrils. Apply the light tone in the center of the septum, under the eyes making an inverted triangle and in the central part of the forehead, and blends everything well to erase any line. Start from the light tone so as not to obscure what you want to illuminate.
Conclude with a touch of blush for your cheeks. Best in a pink color, as it is more flattering for light skin.
