We’ll give you some tips on doing it the right way.
How do you apply contour powder and blush?
Many women want to learn how to apply contour powder and blush like a professional. Contouring can help to sculpt your face and make you look thinner, while blush can bring color back to your cheeks and make you look more awake.
Apply the contour powder under your cheekbones, on the sides of your forehead, down your neck, and along your jawline. Then dust a little over the top of your cheeks for added color. Next, apply blush to the apples of your cheeks for that lovely youthful glow.
Begin by applying foundation and concealer to the face before contouring. The area of your face that you wish to contour will usually be two shades darker than the rest of your complexion. Use a color wheel or online color contrast tool and choose a shade 2-3 opposite the natural tone of your skin on either side of the wheel for this purpose (almost everyone will use green or purple).
Next, apply some setting powder with a translucent finish over the makeup already applied to the face as it is important not to make either layer too thick as they can look cakey (this is especially true as we age). Finally, blush, which should follow foundation and concealer application, should be simple.
Do you put powder contour on before or after foundation?
There are a few different schools of thought when it comes to contouring. Some people believe that you should put powder contour on before foundation, while others believe it should be applied after. So, which is the right way to do it? Well, the answer depends on your personal preference. However, here are a few things to keep in mind when deciding whether to apply powder contour before or after foundation.
I prefer to apply my powder contour after foundation. That way, I can make sure the undertones in my powder contour match my skin perfectly. Another reason why I like to do it this way is that when you put moisturizer on before applying your makeup, you’re essentially priming an even surface for your makeup to sit on. So, by putting powder over that primed canvas, it helps keep the foundation in place.
