Bringing back Colors and Dimension

Posted by Edge


We are all born with different facial features. Some people have a good amount of cheekbones, and the nose is the foundation. Some people have long jaws and thin lips that give you that Hollywood look. We can't change our facial features, but we can adjust them to become more attractive.

When it comes to makeup, there are different tools and techniques you can use depending on the look you're trying to achieve. A combination of makeup, contour, bronzer, blush, and highlighter, can be used together or separately to create and achieve different styles and looks.

Contour

Contouring is usually done with a darker color that’s applied to the hollows of your cheeks, jawline, and around your hairline. It creates the illusion of a more defined bone structure and can help you appear thinner by giving you more angles. It is ideal for those who want their face to look slightly more angular or have more definition in the cheeks and jawline.

Since every person is unique, different contour techniques are also used for different face shapes.






The brown part is where you would apply the contour.


if you don't have much experience with it, start slow! Use just a little bit of bronzer at first; then gradually increase how much you use as you get more comfortable with the technique.

Here are some products that you can use to sculpt that face:

Silky and modular powder with extreme comfort and immediate writing to outline the contours of the face.
*How to use: Apply to the face, blending well to obtain a uniform result.

Two shades in a single beauty ritual to sculpt your face and harmonise contours. Sublime results!.
*How to use: Apply the fair shade-like concealer from the inner corner of the eye out towards the temples. Apply the dark shade like a cream blush from the hollows of the temples to the cheekbone. Use a brush to blend, or use your fingertips.

It Illuminates and brightens the face. This contouring palette features four powder shades to enhance features and create dimension for a flawless look. Whether softly subtle or more dramatically chiseled, these blendable and buildable formulas allow you to create a customized contour statement, day or night, that’s all your own.
*How to use:

Contour: Darker shades create the illusion of slimming features to sculpt and define. Choose a contour shade and apply it along cheekbones, hairline, sides of nose, and jawline.

Highlight: Lighter shades illuminate and brighten. Apply matte highlight to the middle of the forehead, brow bones, upper cheekbones, down the center of the nose, the bow of the lip, and the center of the chin. Lightly dust shimmer over matte highlight for added luminosity.

Blend: Lightly blend highlight and contour areas together for a seamless, natural look



You can apply and blend the following products using:

The first ergonomically designed non-disposable sponge applicator that allows you to flawlessly apply your makeup. It's designed to be cleaned with its partner Blendercleanser, making it super eco-friendly. It comes with an instruction disc so you can quickly master your application technique.
*How to use: Simply wet. Squeeze. Bounce your way to makeup perfection!

*How to use: Best used for application of highlight and contour powder, and blush. The tapered tip fits perfectly into the contours of the face for easy and precise application.


Bronzers

Bronzing is the art of adding color to your face to give it warmth and dimension. Bronzing powders are typically translucent or semi-opaque in color, which means they won’t look cakey if applied correctly.

It is a great way to enhance your complexion and make your skin look radiant.

To bronze your face, start by brushing bronzer along your hairline on the forehead. Then follow this shape down to where it forms a “handle” around your cheekbones. Swipe color on your cheeks, then blend back again to shade under your jawline. Once applied, your bronzer should be blended in sweeping circular motions to avoid harsh lines or splotches.

The key with bronzer is not to go overboard—it should look like you have a natural glow, not like someone just slapped some sand on your face! It’s important to note that bronzing powder looks best when it’s applied with a large, fluffy brush, not a small detail brush like those used for blush application.

So take it easy with the bronzer powder and build up slowly until you get the desired effect that works for you.

Here are some bronzers that you can use to make your skin look radiant:


Delivers a triple threat of radiant cheek color. Enclosed find pressed blush, bronzer, and highlighter to create a subtle highlight on the skin, a flush of color, or a sun-kissed glow with a super silky texture. An innovative compact that includes every shade needed for glowing skin. Use each shade separately for bronzer, blush, and highlight or eyeshadow, or swirl your brush into the entire compact and sweep onto cheeks for a natural flush of color and illumination.

The elegant terracotta powder perfectly adapts to the skin, conceals minor flaws, and gives you a beautiful holiday tan in a flash – as if you had spent a wonderful day at the beach.
*How to use: Depending on the desired intensity, apply Sunsation over the whole face, as a blusher or to accentuate individual parts of the face and bod.

A bronzer that gives a natural-looking sun-kissed glow.
*How to use: Lightly apply Ultra Bronzer on the apples of the cheeks, the chin, and the temple - exactly where the sun would hit the face. Apply Ultra Bronzer before blush as applying it after will change the blush's color. Use Brushed Sable as a contour on darker skin. It's a great shade for dark olive skin and women of color and can do double duty as a pressed powder.

Create a warm, sun-kissed glow, with one universally flattering shade while protecting and brightening skin tone over time.
*How to use: Shake well before use. Dispense one or two drops onto fingertips, rub them together and gently pat them onto the upper forehead, cheeks, chin, and nose.


Blush

Blush is applied on top of the foundation and pressed into the apples of your cheeks for added natural-looking color. Blush colors are typically in a range of pinks, corals, and peaches but you can also find brownish-orange shades that work well with deeper skin tones. Some people prefer blushes with shimmer while others prefer matte finishes so it’s important to try out different types until you find the right one for your skin type!

There is no actual rule on how to apply your blush. But, there are some techniques you can use that can compliment your facial feature depending on your face shape.






Make sure you're using enough product so the blush can be visible but not too much so that you look like a clown. You want to go for a natural glow here—not full-blown color!

Here are some products that you can use to achieve that pretty flushed look:

A pale pink powder blush that sculpts the face, to give a 'healthy glow' to the complexion.
*How to use: The best way to apply T.LeClerc’s blush is with T.LeClerc’s PIN2 slanted brush.

Tip: smile like you’re about to have your picture taken. This will make it easier to apply the blush correctly. You can use the blush in a number of ways to achieve different effects: For a fresh, dewy complexion, apply a pinkish shade to the centre of your cheekbones and blend outwards. For a healthy glow, choose a warmer shade and brush it from the temples toward the front of the face
.

*How to use: Wet the sponge for a dewier finish, or use it dry to flaunt a matte look. For seamless foundation application, apply a small amount of product directly to the rounded end of the sponge and stipple all over the face before blending.


Highlighter

A highlighter can be used for a number of different things, but its main function is to give you that "lit from within" glow that everyone loves. It helps accentuate the contours of your face and makes it look like you've been kissed by an angel. It also helps create dimension and build structure when used in combination with other products.




Highlighting is a great way to brighten your skin tone and make you look more awake and vibrant.  Highlighter can be used to draw attention to the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, and cupid's bow. It can also be used as an eye shadow to highlight the brow bone.

Although highlighters come in many shades, they typically have a soft or shimmery finish that makes them easy to apply as well as blend into your skin.


Here are some products that can help you achieve that glow and vibrant look:

Enhance cheeks, brow bones, and the bridge of your nose with Colorescience Champagne Kiss Illuminator. Instant, natural radiance.
*How to use: Truly a unique diffuser, that can be used to lighten redness on the hands, neck, chest, and face. Works as a traditional highlighter along the bridge of the nose or under the eyebrows.

Designed with light-reflecting pigment pearls, dewy, liquid-gel highlighter adds subtle luminosity and definition for skin that looks naturally glowing. The sheer, blendable formula ensures a seamless application as the skin-improving ingredients such as Vitamin C Ester visibly improve dullness and discoloration over time.
*How to use: Shake well before use. Apply one to two dots along the upper cheeks, the upper brow area, or the tip of the nose, and gently press into the skin to accentuate and create definition.
