Contouring Tips for Heart Shaped Faces

By  | 

Heart-shaped faces usually have prominent cheekbones and chins it’s important not to over-contour, which will make your face look pointier.

Step 1: Start by using a foundation brush to apply primer to your face, which will give you a softer, more natural finish.

Step 2: Using a contouring product that’s one to two shades darker than your natural skin tone, like a stick or cream foundation, apply product right under your cheekbones and on your temples.

Tip: In order to figure out where you need to contour beneath your cheekbones, just find your tragus (the central part of your ear) and blend downwards from that point, at an angle.

Step 3: Apply the contouring shade along the sides of your nose, under the tip of your nose and in the crease of your eyelid. Use your fingers to apply. The warmth from your hands will warm the product and allow it to glide on smoothly.

Step 4: Apply a highlighting product or a foundation a shade or two lighter than your skin tone to the bridge of your nose, just above your cheekbones, your chin (to make it look a little more round), right above your lips (to make them look more full) and along your jawline.

Step 5: Blend the darkest parts of your face first. You can use your fingers or apply primer to your brush before blending for a dewy finish. Blend downward from your ear toward your jawline, then blend downward on your nose and temples.

Step 6: Apply highlighter on your lids to lift your eyes and brows. Then apply white eyeliner on your lower rim to open and brighten your eyes. Smudge under your lower lid with your contouring shade to finish your eyes.

Step 7: To finish, dust blush across the apples of your cheeks for some colour.
