How to contour your face: Long Face

Hi everyone, today’s post is about the contouring on long face, I told you on the last post that I am going to do a tutorial per week to show how to really contour your face shape. If you don’t know which shape your face is click here and read the other post.

Today’s shape is the long face because the beauties from the blogs Brooke Clarke and Random Thoughts asked for it. (check out their blogs, they’re amazing!).  So let’s get started!

The Shape

First of all, how to know if my face is really long?

Well, on this shape the size of the forehead is almost equal with the size of the jaw line. An example:

How to contour:

Everyone knows that we use darker and lighter shades to contour the face. (if you don’t know that, look my last contour post)

Dark

1 – Forehead: Apply the darker shade (foundation, powder or cream) on the top of the forehead, very near the hair.

2 – Apply it on the the side of the head.

3 -Cheeks: Apply on your cheeks, but be careful, on the long face you should make a horizontal line on this place, never do like a transversal line if you have a long face, it would make your face look even longer, so always draw a horizontal line!

4 – Chin: apply the dark shade there too, it will make your face look shorter.

Dark correction

Light

1 – Eyebrows: Apply light foundation up on the browns and on the brown bone.

2 – Cheeks: Apply on the cheek bones and on the jaw line.

3 – Apply on the center of the nose and beside the nostril.

It should look like this:

Another important thing, on this face shape you should apply the blush on a horizontal line too!

Thank you for reading! I hope I explained it good, haha

How to REALLY contour your face

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).

Image: Makeup in India

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: 

Pownder


Cream

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 😘❤
