Contouring can be essential in accentuating features that we already have and of course cheating some features we may not have.

Knowing the simple rules of contouring is so important because as easy as it can be, it also does not take much to go a bit overboard and not even look real. Watch my quick tutorial below on how to easily achieve a matte contoured look.

1. If you are using the same Smashbox contour palette that I am in my video then you will use the angled brush provided to contour the desired areas with the darker shade.
2. Using a smaller tipped brush, such as the Real Techniques setting brush, contour the sides of your nose with the darker shade.
3. Using a blush brush, like my MAC #19 brush, bronze the cheekbones just above the contouring.
4. Using the same smaller tipped brush used on your nose, add the highlighter shade in desired areas.
Here are the products used in my video.

I moved to Los Angeles 7 years ago for music but ended up in fashion. That's just how things fall into place, sometimes! I had always been in front of the camera, but I felt like I would be better utilized behind it, so that's how my love for fashion started. I started styling celebrities for events, then editorials for magazines, and eventually, major AD campaigns. My primary focus now is being the brand ambassador for Fashionisers, sharing my knowledge with the world to help each person be the best, fashion-forward self they can be.
