How to contour your nose, and why I was doing it wrong! πŸ‘ƒπŸΌ

You heard it!… I must have started contouring around two years ago when I got my first contouring palette for Christmas!

I fell in love instantly, and I looked up a couple of tutorials on how to contour, nothing major though because I thought, it’s easy ya’ll I got this! Fast forward to around a month ago I saw an image that legit changed my life! Ok maybe not my life but it definitely upped my makeup game by at least 30%!

This was the image:

Thank you to the human who made this image. Before this I was legit contouring my nose thinking what the hell is this penis looking junk all up on my face, I was supposed to be making my nose look better not making it look like a sausage! This got me wondering how many other contour loving people have been doing the exact same thing!

The new contour technique worked like a dream on my nose as soon as I tried it! So I decided to put together a couple of images myself to show you guys the difference it makes!

Just focusing on the nose here (as I was also in the process of contouring the rest of my face during this process) The top two images show the ‘penis contour’ as I like to call it. You can see that when it is blended, it doesn’t actually make for a very appealing look! The bottom row of images shows you the ‘anchor style’ contour!.. I just made that name up for the purpose of this post so let me know if it has another name 🀣!

Can you see the difference? I really think it makes my nose look a lot more appealing! It is also a lot easier to add highlight to the better defined lighter areas too, which again adds to the overall improvement!

I found a throwback image of the old contour style, and an image from yesterday using the correct technique just to show you guys the difference!

With this new found knowledge, I really feel that I have improved my skills in the makeup department and would love to know your thoughts on the topic!

  1. Are you telling me that every time someone (me included) has said you look nice in your make up we were wrong!!! And we didn’t know it!! I am lost now how can I say you look nice when I can’t tell the difference πŸ˜› I guess I am going to have to listen to Kie for King’s Alphabet Avenger again and wonder how he did that in one take. You look great as usual by the way πŸ˜‰
