Part 2: now it’s personal
Get the real deal on those do’s and don’ts plaguing the sculpting nation.
(DON’T) GO HARD OR GO HOME
More product ≠ better contour.
Start light with your product, and blend out. If you think you need more drama, add more. But the drama will be nothing compared to if you start too heavy with big, brown lines and have to start again.
It is 100 times easier to start light and add than it is to take away product.
ONE BRUSH FITS ALL
You at the back, wondering why your face looks dirty. This one’s for you.
There’s going to be a residue of whatever colour you last used left on your brush, and it’s going to get mixed up on your skin and ruin whatever effect you were going for.
If you only have one brush – wash it! Even just clean it with a face wipe! But make sure you’re going in fresh.
CAN I GET CREAM ON TOP?
Creams and liquids need to be the first thing you add. If you have a cream contour you can play around with using that or your foundation first.
However, once you involve powder, put the creams down. Mixing creams and powders results in a thick, unblendable and unset finish that won’t be flattering at all.
IT’S TOO HARD. I GIVE UP.
Ever used blush? Then you’ve already contoured.
Contouring isn’t carving a new face shape, it can also be giving dimension to your makeup. You can do this with a little blush on the cheeks and little sweep of powder under your cheekbones. If you want something more dramatic, this is possible too (and keep an eye on Jecca Blac for something very helpful coming very soon). But contouring can be a simple, two-minute step in your routine that is easy and looks professional.
Still not enough for you? Got questions? Jecca Blac has an answer to that, and sooner than you might think. Keep an eye on our socials @JeccaBlac for something very exciting very soon.
