HOW TO CONTOUR STEP 1: CREATE A FOUNDATION BASE
Apply foundation all over your face to create a natural looking but seamless "canvas" for the contour.
We all hear so much about the sculpting, enhancing, all-around transformative magic of contouring. Celebrities swear by it, Instagram stars don't leave home without it. But how many people out there know how to actually do it—and why? Don't be intimidated! Makeup artist Alexis Oakley shows us how to contour and highlight the whole face just by using two shades of Maybelline concealer. Let's break it all down.
Watch Alexis contour her full face with two shades of Instant Eraser with this easy tutorial!
Start with the darker concealer shade at the top of your cheekbone and draw a line right to the apple of your cheek. Tip: Always apply your darker contour shade first and your highlighter/concealer shade second. It will give a more "lifted" and awake effect.
Now use a lighter concealer shade to conceal dark circles and brighten the face. Add "lift" by drawing slightly upward tilted lines at the ends of the eyes, in between brows, down the bridge of the nose, and along the mid cheek. Add a pop of brightness on the outer corners of the nose, and a dot on the center chin. Then, blend!
