How to contour a round face
Wanna contour a round face? A concealer is enough!
My face does not typically belong to a round one in nature but it can be a round one, because snacks and desserts are necessities for me, and to a most degree, for most gals lol. After stuffing myself with feasts, chocolate and pouring several bottles of milk tea at the same time, my stomach will be swollen soon. However, if I have kept filling these stuff for a couple of days, the phenomenon of swell would shift to happen on my face. Unfortunately, that is the place I cannot cover with any clothes. It cannot be more awful if I have a date, wearing a big swollen face. How to save face in a short period of time? Let’s thanks to the contour and highlighting techniques. Once finishing the foundation routine, it’s going to conceal and highlight my face. What I use is NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealerr and I choose the shade of light 2 Vanilla (AUD 48). In addition to a large portion of powder in it, this concealer includes magnolia bark extract, grape seed extract and vitamin E. These botanicals can help relieve the redness and hydrate the skin as well. Usually I apply it to the area that I wanna highlight, such as a triangle part under my eyes. That part is enclosed by eyes, nose and the cheekbone. I also apply it on my chin to bring it forward. Besides, my forehead and the bridge of my nose still need to be salient. The area of the forehead does not mean my whole forehead part, and is more like to draw a shape of a bowler hat. The line closely above your eyebrow line should be the brim of the hat, and the middle section of my forehead should be the cone of the hat. Once the application is done, blending the creamy powder into the skin by only tapping, in case of their movements to other areas of my face.

My go-to palette! Always contour my round face with this one!
Sculpting features of my face is an essential step of my daily makeup, in particular I have round face. A round face is characterized by a wide cheekbone area, a round chin and slight structure or curve. Usually, a round face is as long as it’s wide. To add depth and structure to my round face, contouring is a much-needed technique for my makeup procedure. For found face like mine, the ultimate goal of contouring is to create slimmer and more structure shape. My favorite contouring partner is this Charlotte Tilbury - Filmstar Bronze & Glow. Shades for fair skin and medium to dark skin are both available. I bought the shade for fair skin. This product retails for $68. It has a beautiful metal golden packaging. It is a two-side powder palette with one for contouring and the other for highlighting. The bronze shade provides a natural tan finish, at the same time helps contour my face and accentuate the weak cheekbone. The glow shade is to highlight wherever you want to accentuate. By using this one palette, I can simply mimic a sun-kissed tan whilst glowing look on my face. It is important to do it right as contouring round face is more complex than normal. I want to show you how I contour my face with this product. Step 1 To begin with, a flawless base is necessary, so applying foundation and concealer is the basic step. Step 2 Use the bronze. Start from the ears to the area below the cheekbones and to the middle areas of the cheek. Contour with jaw line, also from the area below ears. And don’t forget the forehead area around the hairline. Blend them to a natural finish. If you want a more pigmented look, just add more layers. Step 3 Highlight the areas need to be highlighted. The cheekbone and jaw should be focused on. Highlights form a contrast with the contours, then accentuate the structure of the face. Both contouring and highlighting are important to contour round face.

Only $12! Let contouring save your round face!
For a long time, I was upset about my round face, because the lack of natural angles around the perimeter. I always envied girls who had a lot of dimension. However, when I began to use bronzer, I understood a truth: It's not your fault that you have a round face, but if you don’t make good use of contouring, that's your fault. Now, contouring is an essential step in my makeup routine. I am interested in collecting kinds of contouring products. Recently I’m a big fan of NYX - Wonder Stick, of which, one side is for a brilliant highlight, the other is for a sleek contour. I bought the shade tittled Medium, which matches my darker skin tone. The dark-ended contour part is everything I needed. It blends so smoothly and you can even build up the color for a more drastic contour, providing a very natural look. I just love the final touch it added to my face, without staining my skin. This stick is also very handy for minimal highlights, with the highlight portion of the stick tapered at the end, you can use it to highlight cheekbones and nose with good control. It is very creamy and goes on easily without pulling delicate eye skin. By the way, good product is the base of perfect makeup, knowing techniques to contour a round face shape is also important. The goal of contouring a round face is to slim the chin, widen the cheekbones and create angles and dimension for the whole face. So we should add contour to the outer edges of your forehead, at your temples, and under your cheekbones, then around your jawline. Highlighting is also a way to create dimension and enhance features in the face with lighter colors. Apply highlighter to the center of your forehead, the center of your chin, and the bridge of your nose. These processes help draw more attention to those areas of the face. The stick really simplifies contouring and it's compact design allows for it to go anywhere easily. This surely should be in your makeup bag!
🔥Beauty Tricks | Round Face Come and Get it🔥
Beauty Tricks That Make Your Face Look Thinner We love round things: donuts, the moon, the lovely round face... wait, the round face? Round face are usually shorter in length and fairly symmetrical, with our cheekbones being the widest part of your face. Since our features are often more soft and rounded, we easily lose a lot of dimension and end up with looking a little flat after putting on our base foundation. 〰️〰️〰️How to Contour a Round Face〰️〰️〰️ 🔥Step 1: Highlight🔥 As with most face shapes, you’ll want to add a lighter concealer under the eyes for a bright, refreshed appearance. I prefer a liquid concealer like our 2nd Skin Concealer for highlighting, but a liquid foundation will do just as well. Choose a shade that’s 1-2 shades lighter than your skin tone. MAYBELLINE - Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer ( $10; Shades: 12) is a great choice. The pigmentation is super impressive and it covers everything! Intensity can be adjusted. Not chunky at all. I love it. Place the product in a cone shape, like an upside down triangle. The flat edge of the triangle will be along the lower lash line, with the point extending down to the apex of your cheeks. You’ll also want to add highlight to all the main stops along the center of your face. This includes your “third-eye” or the center of your forehead, the center of your chin, and the bridge/tip of your nose. Don’t be shy with highlighter! My friend gave me VISEE, and it actually pretty good, I'm not sure if you could buy it. But I still recommend it. LOL I'll put pictures to show you. 🔥Step 2: Contour🔥 To accentuate your cheekbones, you’ll want to contour just below them. Use a bronzer, powder foundation, liquid foundation, or liquid concealer in 1-2 shades darker than your skin tone. I recently love using FENTY BEAUTY - Match Stix Glow Skinstick It's perfect for my oily/normal skin. application is smooth, blend like a dream, and the finish to die for. Suck in your cheeks or make the (iconic) duck face in the mirror to find the correct spot to start dabbing product with your Beautyblender. You’ll also want to contour along your forehead and pull it down the temple–think of it as the letter “C” on each side of your face. I add contour the upper, outer sides of my foreheads at hairline and where the temples are, along the far edges of our jawlines, and just under the cheekbones (usually where the sideburns and ear tragus are). 〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️ The most important step of highlighting and contouring is always blending! A harsh line is a dead giveaway, and ruins the credibility of all the makeup you’re wearing. Be sure to start subtly, and apply makeup in direct, natural light. Even if everything looks blended, give it once over with a clean, slightly damp sponge (or fluffy brush) with a tiny bit of translucent powder.

What I do to make my round face slimmer
Did you know that with the right methods and tricks, you can actually change your face shape to a very large extent? I have always had a complex about my round face and tend to use my hair to cover up my face. Nowadays, I have found the power of makeup and I’m excited to share the tips on how to make your round face slimmer! Face shape: Like I said before, I have a very round face. I have very large cheekbones and chubby cheeks, so my face looks like a lollipop. But with the help of highlighter and blush, I was able to fake a slim face! Method: highlight + blush position I have realised that if you apply highlighter correctly, it does an amazing job at shaping and slimming the face, even without shading. I tend to apply it on my nose bridge and nose tips, cupids bow and chin because it makes my face look so much more dimensional and actually adds depth to my face. So my face does not look flat and round anymore. I would apply only a light layer of highlighter on my cheekbones because I don’t want to enlarge them since they are big enough as it is and are what make my face look huge and round. Similarly with blush, if you choose a calm and deeper shade of blush and apply it on your cheekbones almost like shading, then it has a slimming effect. Sometimes shading might look too harsh or unnatural, but using a blush to shape your face is a much more natural and subtle way of shaping your face. Products: Fenty Beauty Killawatt Foil Freestyle Highlighter Duo + Benefit Dandelion Highlighter: This is by far my favourite highlighter! It does not provide a subtle glow but a very strong one which I absolutely adore. The colour payoff is amazing. It includes a golden tone and a bluish cold tone that is perfect for any skin tone. I am able to create many looks with this highlighter. Blush: Blush is my favourite part of the makeup and Dandelion is a keeper for me. It is in a very cute baby pink shade with gold shimmer that brightens up the complexion nicely. It gives me a lovely girl next door look. I also love the packaging, not only is it super cute but also it includes a small mirror and brush inside, which is very convenient to carry around. It comes in two sizes, for anyone that is budget conscious, I’d recommend the smaller size which is $25 that still lasts a long time even if I apply it almost everyday.

This Contour Wand is Impossible to Beat
My face has a super round shape and because of that contouring is my best friend. It really helps give me a more 3D chiseled look for more depth and dimension. I remember when I first tried out contouring I hit the sephora stores to try out some looks. There are contour sticks, powder or in this case wands. Bippity Boppity Boo sisters. My target areas of application is my hairline and forehead area. This is to make my forehead not look so much like a fivehead. I also apply under my cheekbone and down to give me a lengthier face. I put on under my jawline to create darker shadows to make my face look slimmer. I never miss to put it on the sides of my nose and face for more slender features. The $38 contour wand comes in two shades only: light to medium medium to dark Before the review here are some contouring tips: 1. Choose the right shades! 2. Blend and blend well for natural finish 3. Don’t pile on too thick to prevent cake 🎂 4. Customize the contour for your face shape. The Contour Wand from Charlotte Tilbury is my hero. Contour sticks can seem just as easy as putting on but I was put off because I don’t feel certain that it will stay in place. Sometimes, I’m lazy to wear a primer and the Charlotte Tilbury - Hollywood Contour Wand makes it easy enough for my everyday make up looks. The applicator is a twist off style. Squeeze to see the lightweight and very blendable contour liquid. One little squeeze is enough for me and I dab lightly in all the areas I want to contour. At first glance, I thought the color was too dark on me but once blended, it’s the perfect shade to give my face definition and cheekbones. Use with a damp beauty blender and a brush to finish, it looks natural and stays on all day. Have you tried this product? If so, let me know what you think of it in the comments and thanks for reading!
