I was inspired by this video and tried this type of contouring on myself today.
Before I saw this video, I always contoured and highlighted after I applied my foundation, this time, I did it before, I was quite impressed with the results.
Products I used:
for contouring: ELF contouring powder and ELF healthy glow bronzing powder in Luminance
for highlighting: ELF shimmer powder(blush) in Spotlight
foundation: L'oreal Lumimagique in Gold Sand and L'Oreal Visible Lift in Ivory (I mixed these two foundations to get a slightly darker shade then my naturad tan color)
setting powder: L'Oreal True Match in C2
Eyes and brows are made with my usual products, some MUA and ELF eyeshadows, Maybelline gel liner, YSL faux cils mascara.
Blush is ELF Coral and lips are Catrice matte rouge 190 topped off with Catrice lipbalm tube.
This kinda "nude" makeup look is one of my favorites lately. I'll make a full tutorial soon!
What do you think of this way of contouring - have you tried it?
Hope you like these kind of posts - I plan to make more of them :)
