For many years Bronzing has been a makeup mainstream while contouring mostly remained in the realm of pros. Recent years shows us this changing but many makeup users are left confused about the two techniques. Bronzing and contouring shows similarities between products and are both used to strategically darken the skin however, they should both be used in different ways for different purposes.

What is Contouring?
Contouring is the use of makeup to create the illusion of shadows on the skin in order to sculpt, define and restructure the face.You can achieve killer cheekbones, a slimmer nose and a flawless facial shape from contouring by using precise application and good technique.

What Should I Look For In A Contouring Product?
Your contour product should always be completely matte to emulate a natural shadow. Shadows are also cool-tined, so you need a product with grey or beige undertones.Anything orange or golden will simply kill the look and won't resemble a natural shadow.

How Is Contour Applied?
Your contour application is dependent on your face shape however, you should always apply your darker contour shade on areas you want to take away the attention from. The side of your nose (to slim it), the hallows of your cheeks (to enhance cheekbones), or the templates (to narrow the forehead) are all good areas to contour. To pop your look and draw all the attention to your face, you can also pair contour with highlights.

What is Bronzing?
For a bright sun-kissed glow and a enhanced tan bronzer is highly recommended. Without masking it and adding warmth, bronzing makeup can be used to darken areas of the skin. It is a great way to make your skin look radiant and healthy.

Picking The Perfect Bronzer
«ronzing products comes in different formulas: gels, creams, powders, and liquids however, they are all the same. Some products are used all over the body and not just on the face. You can also choose a matte bronzer or a shimmery one. A matte bronzer is better if you want a natural finish. Use a matte product to lightly define your features and warm up your skin tone. Shimmer is best for a sun-kissed, radiant finish. Bronzers tend to be more warm-toned, which is why you shouldn't use one as contour. A matte bronzer may look like a good contour shade, but it's more likely to warm your skin and not create the cool-toned shadows you want.

How Should Bronzer Be Applied?
«ronzer should be applied to areas where the sun hits your skin the most and where you tan the darkest. These are typically the cheekbones, temples, and the bridge of your nose.

It may be tempting to raid your stash for contour and find an old matte bronzer. However, it's worth saving that product for bronzing and investing in contour makeup instead.

It's important to understand the differences between the two techniques. Then you can use bronzing and contouring side by side to create a beautifully sculpted AND sun-kissed look.
