Contouring is nothing new; this makeup technique has been used in different ways through the decades but mostly it was to change your face to look a certain way. These days, beauty trends have dialed down the intensity by several notches. Currently, we are all about creating a natural look. And the adage, less is more, cannot be truer, especially when it comes to doing a natural contour. The point of contouring is to give the face depth and dimension, and we can do this by creating the illusion of a shadow. This will allow the face to pop more, giving it a more “3D look”. To create the perfect contour, choose a matte powder three shades darker than your skin tone, but still within the same undertone family. For cool-toned complexions, it’s best to stick to cooler, grayish-brown shades, while warm skin tones should choose reddish brown shades.
