Contouring. Strobing. Sculpting. Whatever you call it, the face shaping trend continues to evolve. And as more and more contouring products hit the market, choosing the right tools and techniques can feel more and more overwhelming.
Which is why we’re matching you with the brush you need to achieve the type of contour you want (soft or precise):
The medium-sized rounded bristles effortlessly apply a soft focus contour or highlight. Swirl the tips of your contour brush into a contour powder, then run down the hollows of cheeks, using small circular strokes to soften and blend into surrounding skin.
Sweep a cream highlighter along the tops of cheekbone for a visible “lift.”
Great brush to use everyday to define your face shape with a few simple strokes. Choose a contour cream and sweep underneath the cheekbone, from the top of the ear toward the corner of your mouth, but no further than the edge of your eye.
Run a small amount along the lower edge of your the jawbone and/or around the hairline with your sculpting brush. The dark shade will “sink” those areas, giving the appearance of added depth and dimension to your bone structure.
301 Flat Contour Brush
The short, dense bristles and straight edges are designed to create a sharp, chiseled contour. Place the flat edge of the brush into a matte bronzer and tap off excess powder. Press the 301 Flat Contour Brush into the lower edge of your cheekbone, moving upward. Use very short strokes to blend the edges of the contour.
The small angled brush is ideal for those who want a precise application in tight areas. Smooth a creamy contour color on the outside edge of your nose using the concealer brush.
Pop a highlight along the top of cheekbones using the flat side of brush or down the center of nose with the angled tip.
