    How to contour your face: Round Face

    Hi everyone, today’s post is about the contouring on round face, requested by Melanie. I am going to post here how to really contour every face shape, the last post was about long face. If you would like to learn how to contour another shape (oval, square, triangle…) please let me know!
    On my first contour post I explained how to find your face shape, if you didn’t read it yet, you can read it here.

    So, let’s get started!

    The Shape

    The biggest characteristic of this face shape is fuller cheeks.

    How to Contour

    Dark

    1. Add the darker tone on the temples, going down on the down part of the cheekbones, looking like a “C” shape near the hair line.
    2. Add the dark shade on the whole jaw line, from the beginning to the chin.

    Light

    1. Eyebrows: Apply light foundation up on the browns and on the brown bone.
    2. Apply on the center of the nose and beside the nostril.
    3. Apply on the highest parts of the cheekbones.

    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 😘❤

    My “No Makeup” Makeup Look

    Hey guys! Today’s post is about my no makeup, makeup look. 


    I wear this makeup on my everyday and to work. 

    Eyes: 

    I use a neutral cool toned palette. This one I’m using lately is from a Brazilian brand named Jamyne. (It was on my last month favorites post).  But, I use Kylie’s Bronze Palatte too!


    1. The first shade I always apply is this very light brown (color 09) on my crease:


    2. I pick up the chocolate brown (color 03) and make my crease darker. 


    3. The last shade I apply is a very dark purple shade, I use it to like my lash lines.


    4. For masquera I use Revlon Dramatic Definition.


    Skin:

    1. I’m not going to use foundation for this look so I apply a very good primer all over my face, my favorite that minimize my pores and lines.


    2. I apply just concealer on my undereyes and on some marks I wanna hide.


    3. I set my under eye with a translucent power.


    4. The last step is to apply bronzer and a little blush. 

    Lips:

    I usually go with Kylie lipgloss in the shade Like. 


    What is your favorite makeup for everyday?
