I was never a fan of nose contouring, maybe because I never could reach a beautiful subtle result. My nose was always looking like it was dirty or something, but not like it was professionally contoured. and highlighted. However recently I`ve invented a very easy and fun way to contour my nose and I was so excited to share it with you. Basically, you can use this method to highlight and contour any part of your face, the only thing you will need is to take some time and prepare the best stencil that will fit to the shape of your face.
1. All you need to start with is to apply the foundation & concealer, as you usually do, then everything with your favourite powder.
2. After you need to cut out of the cardboard or paper (or masking tape) a piece, it should be as wide as the part of your nose, where you will put the highlighter.
3. Then press it carefully against your nose and contour all around this paper. Keep the lines light at first and build up the intensity of the contouring, to avoid the harsh lines.
4. Remove the paper and highlight the bridge of your nose. Be careful and don`t make the line of highlighter too wide. Don`t forget to blend out the edges with a fluffy blending brush and enjoy the result!
Try to use matte bronzer or eye shadow that is two - three shades darker than your skin tone, to keep it natural. You can also use cream products for contouring, like concealer or darker foundation, but I prefer powder products, because they are more easy to work with, especially for beginners. For highlighting you can use off - white or nude products, but for night makeup you can use some satin eye shadow, for more interesting glow on your skin. Good luck with this simple contouring technique and please let me know if you would like to try it in the comment section , see you soon :)
