The secrets of perfect contouring: step by step guide

Contouring is one of the most popular makeup techniques because it shapes the face and highlights it. But to achieve a perfect look, you need to know the steps to follow. In this article, I will share with you all my secrets for successful contouring and obtaining a perfect result every time.

Step 1: Prepare the skin

The first step to successful contouring is to properly prepare the skin. Start by applying a hydrating serum to hydrate your skin and prep your complexion. Next, apply a moisturizer to protect your skin and help prevent wrinkles. Finally, apply a light primer to even out your skin and prepare your complexion before contouring.

Step 2: Apply foundation

Once your skin is ready, you can apply your foundation. Use a lightweight primer and smooth it into your skin using a sponge. Make sure your foundation is applied well and blends well on your skin.

Step 3: Apply concealer

Once your foundation is well applied, you can apply concealer to cover blemishes and dark circles. Apply the concealer with a brush and blend it well.

Step 4: Apply Blush

Once your concealer is well applied, you can apply blush to add a pop of color to your face. Use a light blush and apply it lightly to your cheekbones.

Step 5: Apply eyeshadow

Once your blush is well applied, you can apply eyeshadow to add color and depth to your eyes. Use a light eyeshadow and apply it lightly to your eyelids.

Step 6: Apply contouring

Now you can apply contouring. Use eye shadow darker than your skin tone to create highlights and shadows on your face. Start by applying the shadow to the sides of your nose and the top of your cheeks. Next, apply the shadow to the underside of your cheekbones and chin. Finally, apply the shadow to the forehead and the top of the temples.

Step 7: Blend the contour

Once you have applied the contour, you need to blend the shadow to achieve a natural look. Use a blending brush and blend the shadow in circular motions until it is well integrated into your skin.

Step 8: Apply blush and highlighter

Once the contouring is well blended, you can apply the blush and highlighter. Use a blush brush and apply blush to the cheekbones. Next, use a highlighter brush and apply the highlighter to the high points of your face, such as the tops of your cheekbones, chin, and top of your nose.

Step 9: Finish the Look

Once you have applied the blush and highlighter, you can finish your look with mascara and lipstick. Apply mascara to add volume and length to your lashes and apply lipstick to give your look a finishing touch.


Contouring is a very popular makeup technique that helps highlight and shape your face. With these simple steps, you can easily achieve a perfect look every time. So, don’t hesitate to try contouring and share your results on social networks!
