Contouring is always a gorgeous way to add definition and shape to the face. However, in Summer heavy contouring and powdery finishes can feel a little much. Update your contouring for Summer with our tips and favourite products.
Summer Contour Tips
There are 3 things we swear by for making your contour look perfectly subtle and glowing in Summer:
- Swap to liquid and creams. Bronzing serums, sheer gels and soft creams all give a gorgeous finish for Summer. They work really well with lighter coverage bases like BB Creams or Tinted Moisturisers and keep skin looking fresh and dewy rather than powdery.
- Apply in a '3'. Rather than harsh lines under cheekbones, applying in a 3 gives a softer look that will also help boost your Summer tan. A touch of your liquid contour shade under the cheekbones, onto the temples and under jawline in a '3' shape is the easiest way to get the look.
- Blend with a sponge. Brushes can move liquid and cream makeup around too much, leaving streaks and brush marks. For flawless blending, use a damp makeup sponge and bounce it along the skin to soften all the edges.
