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?

TedHair inspiration

Lately we talked about beautiful hair and the way you can alter your looks with artificial hair. We discussed the possibility of adding locks. It looks great, esp if you can place them properly you can achieve interesting variation of hair. For example you can add some crazy color to your hair which is very trendy but could harm your hair more (you have to bleach your hair first if you are not naturally blond) than regular dye. Actually we don't have to try hard to do that. Why don't we pick pre-dyed hair instead of regular colored option? When we think about that more we come to some Internet surfing. One if valuable option you may find online are TedHair virgin hair  Today have partnered with them to bring you the inspiration. Here are wonderful options I found online. 

Do you like ombré hair? I like the result but never wanted to do that with my own hair. Practically I'm not sure if I like it on my hair day by day. That's why I think hair extensions with that hair d…

FollowTheFabrika announcement

Сегодня день анонсов. Уже очень скоро состоится новый этап моего любимого модного проекта FollowTheFabrika, а ещё раньше пресс-завтрак, посвященный ему. А это подробная информация о событии от устроителей!
16 августа состоится пресс-завтрак проекта FollowTheFabrika в одном из лучших мест столицы - кафе Есенин!
Это кафе в самом «сердце» Москвы на Лубянке, которое передает дух широкой русской души, как в интерьере, так и в блюдах. К нашему счастью сейчас очень «модно» быть начитанными, и цитировать классиков. В собственной библиотеке кафе можно читать или слушать стихи, устраивать поэтические соревнования, как это делал наш любимый поэт с Владимиром Маяковским здесь же, на Новой площади. Поэтому пресс-завтрак самого модного и самого российского fashion-проекта FollowTheFabrika пройдёт именно здесь!
Напомним, что «FollowTheFabrika» (www.facebook.com/thefabrikamoscow) - это механизм, позволяющий дизайнерам одежды получать грандиозный опыт и множество необходимых контактов для дальнейшей р…

Zaful wishlist

Let me get it straight. Today I want to share with you an inspirational post and it will be inspired by plus size bikini. Today is Firyay and even though I don't really work 5/2 so my schedule is kinda messed up I do have a lot of joy for the weekend. May be because it's other schedule working for me, may be it's because tons of activities in the city or may be because doing the weekend we have a stop on our house improvements (tubes changing and such) and finally we can have some full relax and go anywhere we want. Because of al of this and also because it's summer I really think about gathering my friends and hit on the beach.  To do so I am going to wear my new swimsuit however I do think I need more of them. I currently have only 2 pairs and improvised combo of leftovers from destroyed bikinis. I'm hoping to get some more and while I'm slowly picking my favorites I decided to share my thoughts and choices with you while I'm filling my wishlist. To do so…
