Face Contouring Workshop

Face contouring might sound a little painful, but I promise it is totally pain-free and can completely transform your look! We’ll learn how to contour and highlight to showcase our best features. Everyone’s face shape is a little different, so we will also discuss how to contour and highlight for different face shapes.

Here is a list of products to bring to the workshop, along with some suggestions for specific products if you do not already have some of these in your makeup bag. Please keep in mind that it is not a requirement that you bring everything on this list to the workshop. The list below is only to give you an idea of the types of products that I will be using for the demonstration and to act as a suggestion if you decide you would like to purchase some of these. Feel free to bring what you have available to you already and we will discuss how to use those products in different ways.

*Note: If you choose a powder foundation (such as Bare Minerals) remember that using a cream product over a powder product can make the cream product either look muddy or make it difficult to blend (or both). Make sure to choose powder products to use over your powder foundation to prevent this from happening.

  • Face Primer for your skin type
  • The foundation of your choice
  • Concealer in your skin tone
  • A concealer two to three shades lighter than your skin tone
  • A matte bronzer or concealer two to three shades darker than your skin tone
    • Rimmel has a matte bronzer in four different shades and Essence has a matte bronzer in light and dark.
    • L’Oreal makes a great crayon concealer that can double as a cream matte bronzer depending on your skin tone
    • You can also use pressed powder that is two to three shades darker
  • Blush in the color of your choice
    • If you don’t own blush, NYX makes gorgeous blushes in both cream and powder
  • Illuminator/Highlighter of your choice (basically different names for the same type of products)
  • Setting powder of your choice
    • E.L.F. makes a good HD powder that is similar to the Makeup Forever version
    • If you have a darker, more olive skin tone translucent powder can leave a white cast. You can choose a face powder closer to your skin tone to prevent this.
  • Powder Brush
  • A duo fiber brush that can be used interchangeably between powder and cream products
  • A damp makeup sponge (optional) for blending cream products (optional)
