Now that you know your face shape and what you should be doing here's the products I use plus how I contour :)
Crownbrush 10 Concealer Palette
Blank Canvas Cosmetics F17
Blank Canvas Cosmetics F18
I start by applying my normal foundation all over. When contouring I use a concealer palette so I try to use a light liquid foundation as your makeup will look heavy if you have a thick foundation and are applying heavy concealers over that. The Crownbrush 10 concealer palette is great as it comes with 5 contour shades an 5 highlight shades so there is something for every skin tone and you can choose how dramatic you want your contouring to look!
I start with contouring so I take one of the darker shades on my MAC 190 and start on one side of my face and basically draw the shape of three. Do the same on the other side.
Then I use the BCC F17 and contour down the side of my nose. This is great for straightening your nose and making it look slimmer :)
I then add in some more contouring near the eyes before I move onto highlighting.
I then start highlighting. I use the same F17 brush and one of the highlights from the Crownbrush 10 concealer palette. I highlight under the eyes, under the line of contour that I have under my cheek, my chin, down the length of my nose and I finally fan out the highlight colour onto my forehead.
I then blend using the BCC F18. It's important to get rid of all the harsh lines.
This is the kind of desired look I try to get :) half blended face :P
I set the finished look with some powder and then do the rest of my makeup and all that fun stuff :D
