Taa-daaah – a contoured and highlighted face. I suffer from bad skin and breakouts whilst being very self conscious about my scars from previous spots etc but the Beauties Factory contour palette not only defines your face but also covers and conceals whilst remaining light on your face!


Here are ten steps to that perfect contoured look…

  1. Purchase Beauties Factory 6 Colour Professional Contour Palette so that you’re well prepared. It’s like making a cake, you need all the right ingredients before you can start.
  2. Wash your face so it’s clean and smooth, you want the powder to glide on without any make up residue making it look uneven.
  3. Apply a primer, preferably one that doesn’t have a shimmer to it. This will make your skin feel smooth and look poreless!
  4. Apply your base foundation – make sure this is distributed lightly and evenly over  your face.
  5. Conceal any blemishes or dark circles with a concealer (if you don’t have a concealer you can always use one of the lighter shades from the contour palette!
  6. Using the lighter shades (blended to your skin tone) highlight the bridge of your nose, your forehead, your cupid’s bow (above your lip), your chin and under your eyes. This is a lot to remember – just highlight the parts of your face that catches the light. When highlighting under the eyes try and draw a upside down triangle rather than a clean line under the eye – this will accentuate your cheek bones and make you look more awake.
  7. Now the contouring! Use a darker colour across the lower parts of your cheeks (to find this line suck in your cheeks and contour), your temples, the sides of your nose and a little amount on the bottom of your jaw either side of your chin. This will make your cheekbones stand out and your face look more defined. Don’t go OTT – you may end up looking like a skeleton!
  8. Use a makeup brush to blend the contoured lines with the highlighted areas.
  9. Use a finishing powder on top to set the make up on placed and give yourself an airbrushed look.
  10. And there you have it – go out and enjoy looking like you have your own personal make up artist!
