Yes, I know contouring is not a new thing, but I find that it doesn’t favour those with a round face i.e. me. Testing out hundreds of brushes has allowed me to whittle it down to the best highlight and contour brushes for a round face. Guess where they are from? Morphe! So you can get them anywhere in the world and they are affordable.

First I begin with contour to frame my face. I use a cream contour using the Morphe E47 to draw the contour in. I use this brush so that the lines on my face are as thin as  possible. This allows the need of blending to be minimal, as well as directional. This means the blending is more likely to stay in one place as oppose to getting contour to far down your cheek, it begins to look like a beard. Trust me, I’ve been there! This would be under my cheekbones, around the perimeter of my head, jawline, and ever so slightly down the nose. After blending, I then set it, using an angled blush brush. P.S. This is not the same brush I’d use to apply brush. Essentially I have two angled brush brushes for this.

Next, I go in with my highlighter using the Morphe M438 brush. I hold the brush at an angle as pictured above and do a light sweeping across my cheek bones. I go back and forth in the same place and direction to intensify the highlight. You know I need that highlight to be popping so that you can see it from out of space.

Lastly, I apply blush using the Morphe M104 in between the highlight and contour. You don’t want to see where the highlight and contour begins and ends, so it’s best to apply blush last for a blended look without actually having to do all the blending.

Depending on the intensity of the cheekbone I’d do reverse contour my using  a light powder for example what I use to set my under eye, eg Sacha Cosmetics Buttercup Powder and a triangular makeup sponge to lightly sit under the cheek bone. You’ll get that really chiselled look, like the image below.
