My 30 (or more!) days challenges

Day 13 – Contouring

Only once in my life have I had a contouring makeup, it was done professionally and looked very good, but not completely natural. And if there is something that I totally dislike it’s looking fake for sure. But I have to try it again now!

???????????????????????????????

After applying some under base and CC cream on my face, the first step is to take a foundation that is darker than my natural colour – in this case it’s Rimmel’s Stay Matte in Classic Beige – and, mixing it with a some bronzing powder, apply it on the following parts of my face:

I don’t have another foundation that is lighter than my natural colour, so instead I’m using a concealer and apply it as seen in the picture:

Then I take a thick brush and blend everything together very thoroughly (even more thoroughly than in the picture – I went on after I took it!)

???????????????????????????????

The rest of the makeup is done pretty much as normal. I use some pink blush on my cheeks.

???????????????????????????????

For the eyes, there is this bright and juicy colour in my palette, which I’ve been dying to try for a while now. I am not quite sure whether this is dark pink, or purple, but whatever, I use a sponge brush to apply it on my eyelids.

And another lovely colour which I struggle to identify (shimmering brown???) is used for the crease and the area above it. I blend it very well, so that it looks somewhat like a blurred cloud.

I then use an eye pencil to draw a thick line under the eye and a thinner one above the upper lash line.

???????????????????????????????

And, as often, I finish the eye makeup with a little bit of mascara.

???????????????????????????????

Since I’m up for a bright makeup today, for the lips I also use a juicy deep plum colour.

??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

And there it is, pretty quick and easy! I even have a suspicion that it took me way less that it should have. As a result, I really like the look, I think it suits me a lot, but I’m not sure to what extent I have actually managed to do the contouring!
