All About Contour
Have you heard the word contour before and just have no idea what it is?! Maskcara makeup is famous for the HAC method (meaning highlight and contour) and it is a game changer on a woman’s face! I’m gonna teach you all about contour and why you need to add it to your beauty routine!
What is Contour?
We’ve discussed highlight before, but let’s now chat about contour. Contouring is basically putting shadows on your face to define your features and enhance your facial structure. Putting just one color on your face makes it look flat and lifeless. But when you use highlight and contour on your face, it creates a 3D affect and brings out those natural beautiful features you were born with!
Not Just For Runway Models
Back in the day, ok ok just a few years ago, contouring was reserved for runway models and actresses alone. Movie stars would enhance their beauty and look picture perfect for the screen. Those days are long gone! Now highlighting and contouring is available to the masses and can easily be achieved in your own home! Maskcara has a great selection of contour shades for women of all different skin types and colors.
Where Do you Apply Contour?
The purpose behind contour is to bring out those beautiful features. So, the places to properly apply contour are:
- on your cheekbones to make them pop!
- along your hairline to create a shadow effect on your forehead
- on your jawline to define your bone structure and minimize that double chin you may have creeping up on you!
- along the sides of the top of your nose to slim it up
Which Contour Color is Best For You?
Maskcara currently has a selection of 6 contour shades: Walnut, Stone, Ash, Shadow, Olive, and Indigo. Walnut & Stone are warmer contours. Ash & Shadow are cooler contours. Olive & Indigo are neutral contours. Depending on your skin tone, there may be a contour color that will look better on you.
