Pop out your cheeks, shorten your nose and slim your face with these tricks from Rupert Kingston, New CID Cosmetics International Creative Director.
Slim Your Nose
Apply the highlighter down the bridge of your nose in a straight line. Then with your darker shade of concealer, contour the shape of your nose by applying it down the sides.
Top Tip Choose a concealer one shade darker than your Skin tone to contour and a highlighter one shade lighter.
Pop Your Cheeks
Suck your cheeks in while looking into a mirror and take a note of where your cheekbones are.
Then apply your concealer below your cheekbone, from the hairline to the apple of your cheek.
Then add some highlighter to the fleshy part of your cheek that will catch the light.
Narrow Your Forehead
Take your contour colour and apply to the outer corners of your forehead.
Then with your highlighter draw three lines, almost like an upside down arrow, so one line is going down the centre of your forehead, and there are two lines angling towards your hairline, and then blend.
Top Tip Blending is the key to contouring and highlighting. The idea is that you can’t see where it starts and stops.
