Beauty tips to slim your face

Contouring and highlighting your face can bring out your cheek bones, shorten your nose, slim your face and rid you of a double chin. Here’s how to do it …1.“Think of your face as a canvas,” explains Thomas. Once you’ve applied foundation to even out your complexion you need to shade and highlight areas to create shape. Think of the principles of light and dark — any areas made darker will appear as though they’re receding, and anything made lighter appear as though it’s coming forward.2.“I think the easiest product to use is a bronzing powder without too much shimmer,” explains Thomas. Always start with a little on your brush and build it up gradually.3.Begin by building your cheek bones. To do this, add a little bronzer below your cheek bone, from the hairline to towards the apples of your cheek, in a wedge-like shape. This trick is especially good for women who have very round faces. “[Contouring is] all about reshaping your face and giving it sharper edges — you can never have too-high cheek bones,” says Thomas.4. To make a wide or very round forehead appear narrower, shade just the temples or sides of the forehead, and to slim a wide nose, apply the bronzer down the sides of your nose. Want your nose to appear shorter? Shade the underside of the tip.

5. Disguise a double chin by shading the area under your jaw line. Blending is key in contouring your face — the idea is that you can’t see where the contouring starts and stops.

6. If you don’t have deep-set eyes (ie lids that are still visible when your eyes are open), make them pop by shading along the crease line. Do this either with the bronzer or an eyeshadow that’s a shade darker than the colour you’ll wear.

7. To bring areas of your face forward, thus emphasising them, do the opposite to contouring and use a highlighter (most likely a shimmery powder a bit lighter than your skin colour). The areas you want to do this to are your new-found cheek bones, and the centre of your eyelids. When it comes to your lips, dab a lighter lip shade or illuminating cream just in the middle of them.

Contouring and highlighting your face can take a little practice, but as Thomas says, “Once you start, you’ll want to do it every day.” His tip: try it next time you have a big event coming up and take note of how you look in photos taken on the day. “People in film, TV and pictures can’t live without [this trick].”

NB: You don’t have to use a bronzer and highlighter to do this make-up trick — darker and lighter foundations can be used as well.

quiero uno     October 14, 2010
Reviewer: geraldine jimenex from guayana, bolivar Venezuela
Como Hago párrafo comprarlo soy de Venezuela

SUMMARY: I am absolutely putting these brushes at the top of my Christmas list for this year. As many of you already know and that follow me on my youtube channel.  You know that I am a huge fan of make up, hair, fashion and fitness.

So with make up being at the top of my list for #1 must haves. I always been a huge fan of my Mac make up brushes for a few years now. I absolutely do love them as well as my Chanel brushes that I currently own.

When it comes to good quality make up brushes I am willing to pay a little bit more. To get the best look out of my make up. As well as the best performance these brushes deliver.

It’s nice to have brushes that look good. However, it’s more important to me of the quality of the hair fiber’s that are being used. Who wants to feel harsh bristles against their soft skin. Everyone loves softness and of course a nice packaging is always a plus but not a need.

I will definitely keep you posted once I actually order my Sigma brushes. After doing the research myself and watching many beauty guru’s on youtube. I heard nothing but the best in Sigma Reviews for premium brushes.

So if your looking for good quality make up brushes, or maybe starting out in make up check out Sigma brushes.

Add this to your Christmas wish list! They make great gift ideas not just for the Holiday’s but all through the year!

As well as great stocking stuffer’s! Happy Holidays!

Dare to be beautiful~
