Contouring Tips for 5 Basic Face Shapes

Hi beautiful people! Currently I'm having fun on my vacation with sun, sand and sea. I bet you got my idea - I'm off the blogger world. But fortunately we have amazing people to catch up on this. Meet Renee Bertrand and his post.


Contouring Tips for 5 Basic Face Shapes
Let’s face it; very few of us are born with a face shape that will make nay make-up technique work whatsoever. Even models have to shape their face shapes, not with chiseling tools, but with the magic item in any girl’s make-up box – the contouring cream or powder. You also need your blush-on and highlighting cream to complement the entire contouring of the face.
But the same contouring method that works on someone’s face will not work on another. You need to align your contouring technique with the shape of your own face. Check out which of these face shapes is yours and what you need to do bring out the best outline of your visage.
Round Face
Have you been often remarked on the very round face of your shape and wonder what to do about it? The right contouring will definitely do the trick. You’ll need to contour mainly along the jaw line and temples, and apply blush-on under your cheekbones. The apples of the cheek, top of the forehead and bridge of the nose need to be highlighted.













Oval Face
If you’ve got an oval-shaped face, you’ll need minimal contouring because people actually contour to get the face shape you already have! Either skip the contouring altogether, or, if you want to bring some more outline to your face, contour very slightly below your cheekbones. The blush should be applied along your cheekbones, and so should the highlighter above the blush.











Long Face
For those with the long and slender face cuts, contouring has to work to cut down the lengthiness of the face. Therefore, you’ll need to contour along the hairline and jaw line, as well as at the bottom of your chin and the hollows of your cheeks. Apply the blush at the cheekbones at the apples of your cheeks, and highlight a little above from where you apply the blush.

Heart Face
For this pointy-chin face cut, bringing out the symmetry in the face is key. Contour along your hairline, along both sides of your forehead, blending along the outer part of the cheekbones. Also contour at the bottom of the chin. As for blush-on, apply it at the apple of your cheeks along the cheekbone, while highlighting down towards the jaw line.











Square Face
For this face shape, you’ll need to contour along the temples at the hairline as well as the jaw line. The blush should start at the apple of the cheeks, not over it, and blended towards the top part of the ears. Highlight at the bridge of the nose, centers of your forehead and chin, and the apples of your cheeks.











With these contouring and blush tips, there’s no reason why you can’t bring out the best features on your face. So which of these face shapes are you?

Christmas week

Christmas is just around the corner and I am personally super happy and excited with all the decor and holiday spirit around. I totally feel it and enjoy it a lot. I took this photo doing Christmas shopping with my mom. We shared lots of laughs, girly talks and did the present buying job. I have a soft spot for Christmas and holidays I know how to celebrate (decoration and dressing up are my main loves) so I can't really pass the beauties there. I asked my mother to take a quick shot of mine and even took off my mask for a minute for it to look the best. Don't worry, there was literally no one around (it's just opened) and I was changing my mask anyway. Bonus: a part of our tree and lemon cakes from last weekend I was wearing: Arny Praht backpack Uniqlo jeans Fila sneakers not branded and very old sweater   Have a nice day, Lyosha  

I love this sweater

  Did you ever have this moment? You walk into the shop and you see the item and.. you see this item only, everything else is blank and the next moment you are buying it. That is exactly what happened to me. I love this sweater so much! It's so cute! I love the bright and vibrant blue color and absolutely ridiculous and uber cute dog (they say it's a dog) or at least someone canine. I think I will wear this sweater all the time mixing it with Christmas alpaca sweater and fox sweater from the same brand. I also wear classic winter patterns as well but it's not fun enough at least to me. Also I think bright blue looks wonderful with white snow, don't you think? I originally took these photo for instagram Nivea review. I don't plan on turning this post into full term review but I can say this xxl face wash edition is pretty nice. I use face wash very often (I wash my face after every walk outside and especially after visiting public place because of you-know-what thr

Sergiev Posad trip

First trip this year. And with friends. I have visited this town many times and it's still lovely. I'd say the point of this trip was to get out of home and familiar places to enjoy something remotely like a trip. We did want to look for something distant or hard to get to or even taking a lot of time to get to. SO we have chosen Sergiev Posad. This town is closely tied with Russian Orthodox Church having tons of temples and a monastery. I highly recommend to visit it because they have a super delicious bakery inside, not a joke really. The museums were closed and it was a bit cold outside but we walked a lot anyway. And had a fine meal together. If you ask me, it is very close to perfection. As for my outfit... I wanted to keep warm, that is why it looks a lot like what I wear to walk my dogs, lol. I tried to make it all look more pretty with long scarf (I have a soft sot for it) and cute mittens. But that's it really. I was wearing: H&M scarf Tommy Hilfiger b
