Using Blush for Contouring

Ah, yes, contouring, it’s been all the rave in 2015-2016 although the makeup trend has been around for decades. If you still don’t know what contouring is where have you been!? Contoring is all about sculpting and defining the face using a shade or two darker than one’s skin tone. However, ever heard of blush for contouring? I know, it sounds a bit crazy but it is totally the same concept only difference is, it’s in a far more riskier color. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try it!


Aim for the cheek bones and start very closely to the ear, trace the hollow with your preferred color, lessening the pressure as you reach closer to your mouth. Keep on blending until you can’t determine where the edges are and bam! You’ve just accomplished blush contouring.
