Hi everyone! Today’s post is about counting.
Before telling you how to contour your face I’m going to introduce the visagism technique.
The very short definition of visagism is “the art of creating a personal image that shows the qualities according the physical characteristics of every single person”, so, the makeup, hair cut, for example, should respect your physical characteristics.
For that we use the contour. Everyone one has a different shape of face. Because of this usually that contour that works on your favorite YouTuber doesn’t look great on you when you finally try it.
Your face can be oval, round, long, square, heart or diamond, (sometimes we can find more than one shape on the same face, but I’ll talk about it on other post).

The visagism says that the most harmonic shape of face is the oval one. So we basically use the contour to “transform” every other shape of face to an oval form.
How to know the shape of your face:
Analyze your face, your forehead, cheekbones, jawline, etc. and try to creat a real shape on your face. When we see our face as shapes the contour will be easier.
We use a darker and a lighter products to creat light and shadow, shaping and sculpting the face.
The darker product should be 2 tones darker than your foundation, you shouldn’t use a too dark product, the same with the lighter product, it has to be 2 tone lighter than your foundation, not too light!
You can use:
Or foundation for the corrections
You have to apply this products on the right place to shape your face. For that you need to know which shape your face has.
I’m going to make one post per week explain how to do contour in every shape of face. Which shape would you like to see first? Let me know on the comments!
Thanks for reading!
See you next time 😘❤
