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?

Romantic and fierce

I don't really feel like posting something big today but i wanted to make an update. As I was talking about my night at the philharmonic. So why not? I will be sharing my outfit for that day.

I madly love the skirt, it makes me feel so cozy. I am still not completely sure if I like the outfit but it sure is OK. At least the top is making it appropriate to listen to some classical music. I love Philharmonic and it is a common place to go on a date for us. Both me and my husband have deep love towards orchestras and it is always a big joy for us to be able to enjoy it.Holding hands listening to timeless pieces - what ever could be more romantic? I love tend to choose heavy and disturbing pieces mostly from German and Polish authors or modern Asian lightweight and strictness pieces. On a whim we chose a concert with Navarro and Ravel. It splendid, just what I needed and even a little more. Pure joy!




Enjoy your weekend! How are you going to spend it?

Nivea Review

First of all please remember I am not a beauty blogger. All the opinions are my own, it is how I see it after two weeks of usage.

Two weeks ago I received products from Nivea to try. It was a facial cream and deodorant. In short: I liked both products and will most likely buy the facial cream for myself.
deodorant. It works nicely for daily life. the scent is faint and neutral.  The bottle is comfortable and small enough to fit in my rather tiny palm. It is easy to switch so safe off position. However if you need to go to gym, do some cycling, running or yoga you might want something stronger. Cream. The texture is everything here! Soft, light and see through. It doesn't feel like mask on my face and hydrates my skin for sure. It doesn't make skin look oily, it doesn't shine. The scent is very faint and I can't really identify it which is good because I normally try to avoid smelly stuff, especially lavender. Oh and the cream is 100ml. A big one! You don't need a …

MBFWRussia, day 5

And so it ended on my blog as well. Final day of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Russia was special to me. Not only because I got to see Nikolay Legenda's show (one of my favorite) but also because I went to the fashion show with fantastic company my husband and my mother. The best company ever! I could not be happier! Nikolay Legenda's show was mostly focused on men fashion and diversity. I can only say I am all in. The models were fantastic and clothes looked so cool! I wish I could wear it all or at least make husband wear it all.









Second show for the day was from Diana Arno. I really liked the coloring scheme and again models there. The closing gown looked overwhelmingly fantastic. Love it! the collection also was HUGE! So much work and so much style. I think it cover needs of clothes for year ahead. You will not get bored I am sure.








Do you like my outfit? I wore a bit serious dress but I tried to tune it down with flat shoes, hat, choker, straw bag and make up. Overall it was …
