If you haven’t quite mastered the art of contouring, know that you are not alone! How many times have you ended up with harsh lines or dirty-looking faces?? Mayra’s handy techniques are here to show you the proper way to do it.
After applying her foundation and concealer, Mayra takes a contouring stick and adds lines just under her cheekbones, along her chin, on the sides of her nose, and just under her scalp. Once in place, she buffs the darker shade out with a brush. Then, she tops the look off with a lighter one, just under her cheekbones. The final look is pretty remarkable.
