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 strobing & contouring 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 a long shape? This type of face has sharp lines and it develops vertically. Forehead is big, cheekbones are not very prominent and chin is long.

How do you correct and emphasize a long face? For this face type, the role of contouring and strobing is to optically make the face look shorter.

STEP 1. Use shade number 4 below the cheekbones with a horizontal motion, without getting too close to the central area of the face. Create shading on the upper part of forehead and on the tip of the chin. Also create shading below the tip of nose to make it look shorter; if necessary, line the sides of nose, blending upwards to the eyebrows to make it look thinner.

STEP 2. Use shade number 3 to soften contouring made with nuance number 4 and to make it look warmer.

STEP 3. Make the central areas of face look lighter with shade number 2.

STEP 4. After contouring, 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.
