Contouring is a big topic and has been for quite awhile. However, I've found that most people are just doing whatever they saw on Pinterest or maybe even copying their favorite Youtuber.
But have you ever followed contouring instructions only to look in the mirror and feel like you look older? Or your face somehow looks longer? Rounder? Or something just seems "off"?
Well, placement is everything. And it isn't a one-size-fits all.
The reason? You're trying to fit yourself to makeup instead of getting the makeup to fit you. If it doesn't work with the features you have then of course things may not look exactly the way you hoped they would, or more importantly, the way they could.
I have been getting a ton (and I mean a ton) of requests about how to find your face shape. And rightly so, because knowing your face shape can be extremely helpful when it comes to understanding where you need to place your blush, bronzer, highlighter, and contouring powder —or even in choosing a hairstyle.
When you know what is going to work for you, you inevitably will feel better about your makeup choices because whatever it is (highlighting, contouring) will be complimentary. But if you don't know what face shape you have how will you know what will work for you? You won't!
I get a lot of questions about makeup application (thank you everyone who's taken the time to tell me about your makeup struggles) and one thing that came up for several people was figuring out how to get foundation to look better.
If you've been following me for a while then you already know that I believe in teaching people "the rules" so that the door to endless possibilities is opened — because if you know how to play then you know how to win.
So I wanted to give you another ultimate guide but this time you're learning how to get the best-looking foundation.
I've broken this down into five different aspects that you need to pay attention to.
I'm personally obsessed with eyebrows. Once I discovered how our eyebrows can make us look younger, enhance our eyes, and even help balance facial features—I was hooked!
But we've seen eyebrows go through quite a few trends haven't we?
They've been super thin, then back to thick, tamed, untamed, high arch, no arch, bold, light, you name it. We've seen it all.
Since I already told you that I have an obsession with eyebrows (because they're kind of like a secret gem in my book), I decided it was time do to an in-depth guide to help you choose the best eyebrow shape for your lovely face.
I'm going to give you the best guide ever to finding your true eye shape. I probably don't need to tell you, but your eyebrow shape and eyeshadow application should be largely influenced by your eye shape. When you pay attention to that, the result is you looking fabulous.
In my Youtube tutorials and blog posts, I'm always referring to things like round eyes, hooded eyes, wide set eyes, etc. And it occurred to me that you might not know exactly what that even means or what eye shape you actually have. So this guide will be something that we can continuously refer back to.
