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?

What's in my bag?

I never did such post and really wanted to fill in the blanks here. Moreover I wanted to do it because I recently got two items which are hard to show in the outfit but are part of my daily life and style for sure. Plus it's it fun to have a closer look in my daily life? That's why I want to show you my bag contents.

When I'm not wearing a backpack which usually means I have a sports uniform inside or planning or carry something more or less big or going for some travels (so I need my hands as free as possible) I tend to use smaller scale bags. The point is to have only minimum of necessary things with me and not to loose something important. This time I'm featuring my recently most loved bag by NewChic (you can shop it here).

Usually I have a wallet with me. When who doesn't? We still money to life, right? It is my very new and super comfy wallet which was provided by great company NewChic I recently posted two posts with their awesome items here and here.

Sorry, I've been super-busy lately. I'm actually kinda busy right now as well, but I'm trying to do my best to work on the blog!
This post is made form 2 outfits, both having its centre in shoes. I'm in love with this babes! The heel is high for me (11,5 sm) but still this shoes are comfy! Can walk and walk but nothing would worry me.
Heels do always add classyness to any outfit, make it more alive... Less words, more action - let's see my shoes!

Прошу прощения, я была очень-очень занята. Я в действительности занята и сейчас, но я очень стараюсь оставить пост.
Этот пост состоит из 2 нарядов, оба постоены на туфлях. Я так люблю этих крошек! Каблук высоковат для меня (11,5 см) но тем не менее эти туфли удобные! Могу ходить и ходить, но ничто не беспокоит меня.
Каблуки всегда добавляют стиля любому наряду, делают его более живым... Меньше слов, больше дела - посмотрим на мои туфли!


I was wearing:
Tatum dress
Iron Fist heels
Colin's belt

MBFWRussia, day 3

Third day is a middle and it is always exciting to be in the middle. You feel more calm about the fashion week (you have already spend some time and there is not much new around here) but the fashion shows are bright and happy and you love it. Third day was also special because I was with my mother as well, not only with my best of the best husband.


The first show was a very wearable, cozy and bold show by Soji Solarin. Men diversity, bold choices, nice prints and materials. That is something you will be keen on wearing no matter of the size.







Second show was the most curious. It was once again men style fashion show. Absolutely wearable pieces by MLTV clothing were also twisted and screwed in many ways to create an impact. for example: a suit worn only on the front part of the body.





 The final show of the day and my personal main attraction was fashion show by Diana Arno. It was a color crush to me. So very wearable, so very elegant so very me. It was so nicely made, I could feel mod…
