Obviously, besides just adding more color to my face, you can see how much more narrow my forehead looks. And my nose. And my cheeks look way more defined (still not how I'd like them to look but hey, it's what I've got haha).
So here are the tools I use to do this:
There's my ELF blush/bronzer duo which I use every single day.
Obviously I use the bronzer more than the blush haha.
Then there's NYX's "taupe" blush. Which I use sparingly as it makes my skin
look grey if I use too much.
Then I have a Revlon Colorstay highlighter. But any light shimmery color will do.
And I have my Sonia Kashuk stippling brush (for the highlighter) and everything else is done with my angled blush brush. I really like the angled brush because it helps me get up under my cheekbones nicely.
Whoops, I also use a large fluffy eyeshadow brush because I contoured my eye socket too with the taupe blush.
I think if you haven't ever given contouring a try, you should. Even if you don't have anything weird on your face like I do (hello nose!), there's no shame in playing up what you've got! If you have awesome cheekbones, show those suckers off!
Meredith Jessica from Pigments and Palettes actually shows how she contours in this video:
She starts the contouring around 5:00 but you should still watch the whole thing!
