Throwback Thursday: Totally 80's Contouring


Source: Cosmopolitan/Nancy Fashion Fancy

Contouring with bronzer and blush has come and gone throughout the decades and we’re happy to see this striking look come back into style!

In the past, contouring was considered too tricky for everyday and reserved for the professionals. However, thanks to YouTube and bloggers today, the secret to a perfectly contoured face is out! Contouring can be dramatic or subtle enough for a casual look.

For a more dramatic “Kim Kardashian” look use our Studio Moisturizing Foundation Stick in two different colors. Use a stick one shade lighter than your skin color for the highlighting and a stick 2 shades darker than your skin for the contouring.

Follow this picture for placement of the highlighting and contouring colors:

The number one tip for pulling this look off and avoiding any 80s extremes is to BLEND! You can use any number of brushes for blending such as our Studio Stipple Brush, Studio Powder Brush or the Studio Angled Blush Brush.

For an everyday contour, use powder like our Studio Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder. The Angled Blush Brush is also perfect for getting into the hollows of your cheeks with the bronzer. Then lightly sweep the blush onto the apples of your cheeks for a naturally defined look.
