With the use of social media well & truly on the rise, you may have noticed an increase in makeup bloggers posting and appearing on your feeds…. and
YES we are all guilty of being easily influenced into buying the current beauty FADS and trends.
Have you noticed that almost all celebrities & models always have the perfect shaped face, tiny noses, chiselled jawline, contoured cheeks. Well they may be blessed with amazing facial features OR they could be contouring.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW.
WHAT is contouring?– makeup, using darker and lighter skin toned bronzing powder or cream to shade areas you may like to define or reshape such your forehead, jawline or nose.
WHY do we contour? – it can subtly hide or define features to create (to what society thinks) is ultimately the picture perfect look. Contouring can make us look younger, with its ability to achieve a slimming & symmetrical face.
WHAT is the best product? – Cream VS Powder – ideally have your skin diagnosed to determine your skin type as this can be a game changer for applying makeup in general. At Skin Review we offer a complimentary skin diagnosis with the purchase of skin care & makeup. Dehydrated skin suit a creamy texture while powders are more suited to oily skins.
