Round-faced girls, this is the easiest way to contour your face
Yes, you can!
(SPOT.ph) For makeup newbies, the idea of contouring is probably terrifying. How the heck do people know where to put what? How do people blend seamlessly so it looks natural? It might seem like something only makeup virtuosos can make sense of, but it's actually not that complicated. And yes, we're talking to you, round-faced girls—because we know it's doubly hard for you to decide whether you should cozy up to that contour brush or just leave it.
We spoke with makeup artist Elvie Recalde and asked for the lowdown: Should girls with round faces try to contour or should they just embrace their face shape? As if the answer wasn't obvious enough (when your face is round as a button, you're the one who needs that extra structure the most), she starts explaining how to contour round faces.

"When your face is round, you just have to contour diagonally downwards from the side of your face to the jawline," she shares. That way, there will be some sort of structure going on. And of course, highlight the high points of your face, like the center of your forehead, down your nose, the center of your chin, and the undereye area just above your cheekbones. With a small brush, blend your highlighter, then using a bigger brush, start blending your contour.
Finally, dust translucent powder over your face to keep everything in place and voila—you now have cheekbones! Easy peasy!
