Contouring - 3 Budget Friendly Ways


Makeup, as we always say, is an art and contouring, a branch of that beautiful art. Could we, sitting in our homes ever think of achieving a professional looking makeup look which made our jaw look chiseled, nose look structured and the cheeks and eyebrows so glowing and rich? Well, we Indian beauties seemed to have tried our hands at the art of contouring and highlighting which is slowly becoming a part of our regular makeup.

Contouring, if you are not aware deals with creating artificial shadows on the face and is done in areas like plump cheeks and double-chins whereas highlighting is just giving a subtle sheen to the high points of the face.

But, if you are a beginner and do not want to dig holes in your pockets, use these affordable contouring techniques and work your way for a defined and structured face.

If your skin is a fairer tone, use the Maybelline BB Clear Glow Stick  in the shade Fawn. As this product comes in only 2 shades and, the fawn being the darker can serve the purpose of a contour/shadow. Blend it in well so that harsh lines aren't visible. 


2. Foundation
Be it in the form of a gift or a blunder, almost all of us own a foundation darker to our skin tone which has been lying unused and abandoned. It's time to put that foundation to use to contour your nose, cheek bones and jaw. You can also easily contour your beauty/collar bones and your cleavage with a darker tone foundation.

Eye-shadow palettes are a vanity mandate and almost all palates come with a dark brown shade. And the sign of a makeup pro is to swap products for uses other than their own. You could also invest in some brown eye-shadow such as the Makeup Revolution London's Eye Shadow which has around 13-14 shades of brown.
