CONTOURING is the make-up technique used to sculpt face features and to give the right balance to volumes, thanks to a game of light and shades. STROBING is the make-up technique that emphasizes the high points of the face by enhancing them with light reflections.
Pupa creates #READY4SELFIE, a Contouring&Strobing Palette that comes with 4 compact powders to sculpt and illuminate the face. For a make-up that is ready for any kind of selfie!
Does your face have an oval shape? This face shape is characterized by gentle and balanced lines. Forehead, cheekbones and chin are harmonious.
How do you correct and emphasize an oval face? For this face type, the role of contouring and strobing is to give greater definition to face volumes by emphasizing cheekbones.
STEP 1. Use nuance number 4 of #Ready4selfie palette on the central area of the face, creating a shading below the cheekbones, starting from the ears and blending towards the mouth. Then apply it following the natural shape of the forehead next to the hairline. If necessary, line the sides of nose, blending towards the eyebrows to make it look thinner.
STEP 2. Use shade number 3 around contouring made with nuance number 4 to soften the shading and make it look warmer.
STEP 3. Make the central areas of the face look lighter with shade number 2.
STEP 4. After contouring and to get a strobing effect, apply shade number 1 of the highlighter on the high points of the face – cheeks, bridge of nose, areas above and under the eyebrow arch, Cupid’s bow, chin.
Remember to always use the Slanted Blusher Brush of the Professional Brushes line of products on forehead, cheekbones, cheeks and chin. Use the Blending Brush of the Professional Brushes line of products on bridge and sides of nose, on the areas above and under the eyebrow arch and along Cupid’s bow.
