How do you contour with powder blusher featured

Choose the right shade and formula

Contouring with powder blusher can be a game changer in your makeup routine, but it’s important to choose the right shade and formula. Look for a matte powder that is one to two shades darker than your skin tone. If you have fair skin, opt for a cooler toned blush shade, and warm tones for darker skin tones.

Apply your foundation and highlight first

Before applying your contour, make sure you have an even base by applying your foundation and highlighter. Highlight the areas of your face that you want to accentuate, such as your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose, and under the arch of your brow.

Use an angled brush to apply the contour

With an angled brush, lightly dust your chosen powder contour onto the areas of your face that you want to define. Start with the hollows of your cheeks and blend upwards towards your temples. Make sure to keep the contouring subtle and blend out any harsh lines using your brush or a makeup sponge.

Finish with a pop of colour

To complete your look, add a pop of colour with a blush that complements your skin tone. Choose a shade that will give you a natural flush. With a clean makeup brush, sweep the blush onto the apples of your cheeks and blend outwards.

Set your makeup with powder

Finally, set your makeup with a translucent powder to ensure it lasts all day. Take a fluffy powder brush and lightly dust the powder over your face, paying extra attention to your T-zone.

By following these simple steps and practicing your technique, you’ll be able to achieve a natural, sculpted look with powder blusher. Remember to take your time and start with a light hand, gradually building up the intensity of the contour as you go.
