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?

Estet Fashion Week 2021

During my time of being a blogger I hardly missed Estet Fashion Week. This year was regular in that matter, I attended it as well. Actually I am quite happy I did because I spent most of it on Zanzibar island, enjoy my sunny vacation. It was actually worthy of reduction of fashion experiences. But I was very excited to mix the two joys and still watch Estet Fashion Week and look through the styles. This time I watched gown show by Indira Badiyar who takes specialty is formal and evening dresses and super adorable kids fashion show by Oksana Kazakova inspired by vintage pieces. I have to admit I enjoyed both. My outfit is not as cool or fancy as I would want it to be mainly because after my vacation with very simple and effortless looks I didn't feel like wearing too much items, opting for simplicity. Also my skin on hands is not perfect so I wanted to cover it. It also severely limits my options of clothes because I mostly have my hands bare. It was comfortable though, I f

Circus

Hello! Last time I went to the circus 9 years ago and also in March. You probably wonder how come I remember it so well. Actually we went to the circus thanks to my parents the day we applied to get married (in Russia you had to (or still have I am not sure) apply to get your marriage registered two months in advance). My own parents been super worried and nervous back in their day and they celebrate the application day even more than actual wedding date. I think it's super adorable. That's why when I had an opportunity to visit circus I immediately said say. I was provided tickets to the circus of dancing fountains 'Aquamarine' Moscow by 55555 club. It was super awesome because not only I got the ticket for myself I had more to share. So I took my husband and my sis' family to the circus. They say kids love it the most so I just had to take my 5 year old flexible niece and my suddenly very grown up 12 year old niece with me. By the way, the latter shocked me being

MKMM

RU: Не знаю, как вы, а я обожаю конкурсы в сфере моды. А когда я слышу МКММ, я точно уверена, конкурсанты меня не разочаруют. Всегда самые яркие стили, креатив, а так же горды и счастливые лица дизайнеров-участников. Этот конкурс стал трамплином для многих участников, поэтому часто говорят, что попасть в финал уже можно сказать победа. Честно говорю, я не могу не согласиться и от всей души поздравляю вышедших в финал. ENG: I love a good fashion contest and when I hear MKMM I am sure I will not be disappointing. Always the best possible styles, creativity all the way and happy faces of the contestants. The contest became a trampoline to many designers and they say being at the finals in a win already. Frankly, I couldn't agree more.   RU: В этот раз более 20 участников представяли свои коллекции, и я уверена, что жюри было не просто выбирать. По крайней мере, мне было сложно выделить своих личных фаворитов. Темой конкурса было "На Обратной Стороне Луны", и мне кажется, у
