Contour Tips & Tricks

Contour is the perfect way to create bronzed and glowing skin. One of the positives I have noticed during the safer at home order, is that many of us are giving our skin a nice break by going makeup free.

This has inspired me to look for ways I can simplify my makeup routine after these times. I decided to focus on the essential- complexion makeup.

Why Contour?

Being someone that deals with skin imperfections, I typically go all out on this, layering primer with concealer, foundation, and a setting powder, then using bronzer, blush, and highlighter.

Instead, I found that just using a little concealer under your eyes, along with slightly contouring and highlighting your face, goes a long way.

What contouring does is define and enhance the structure of the face. It gives you the no-makeup makeup look, and takes less than 10 minutes to complete.

Before starting, it’s important to figure out your face shape, as this technique will slightly differ with each face.

All you will need for this is a fan brush, a contour brush, and a concealer brush, along with your favorite highlighter and bronzer.

Self-Care Is Key

During these unprecedented times, it’s important to focus first on self care and our emotional wellbeing. It’s completely normal to not make makeup one of your priorities.

That being said, this simple look is a great option if you don’t want to put your energy into doing a full face of makeup, but you still want something quick. It’s also great as we transition into the summer months, when a full face of makeup may feel too heavy. Be sure to share your finished look by tagging #nerolisalonspa on social media!
