One of the latest makeup trends is not one that focuses on the face but the body. Body contouring is another way to ensure that you always look amazing, even when you may have overindulged on the wine and chocolates or skipped a few gym sessions recently.
Basically, with body contouring, you use makeup or fake tan to achieve a more toned, slimmed down look. Sound good? Check out these amazing body contouring hacks and use them whenever you can…
Contour Your Eyes
If you want your eyes to look amazing for their shape, contouring is certainly something you should be doing.
If you have round eyes, you should use dark shades of eyeshadow in the center of your eyes, using lighter makeup to highlight the corners.
If your eyes are almond shaped, cover your eyes with a dark matte brown eyeshadow, using a darker color to fill in the crease.
For hooded eyes, all you need to do is dust with a light coating of a light colored eyeshadow all over the lid.
Disguise the Double Chin
If you have a double chin that y7ou want to get rid of, fake tan id your best friend. Simply draw a triangle shape under your chin with the fake tan, following the natural shape of the area, then fill it in with tan. Next, draw a line of tan from your ear down your jawbone and blend in. Your double chin will disappear, at least temporarily.
Boost Your Cleavage
If you want to look like you have a little more up top, simply take a foundation that is a couple of shades darker than your skin tone and carefully draw in a couple of curved lines where you want your “breasts” to be. Carefully blend with a good makeup brush and your assets will be temporarily enhanced without having to get implants, or anything so drastic. You have to do this very carefully though!
Alternatively, you can apply a little self-tan between your breasts, which will have a similar effect, although it may not be quite as pronounced.
Slim Down Your Thighs
If you want to permanently slim down your thighs, regular exercise or liposuction treatment will be your best bet, but if you’re cool with a temporary fix, then all you need to do is apply a careful line of self-tan along the outer thighs. This will create a fabulous illusion of slimmer legs that should last for a good few days at least.
Slim Down Your Nose
If you want your nose to look a little thinner and prettier, but you don’t want to go to the expense of a nose job, then all you need to do is, starting at your brows, draw a line down each side of your nose with a little bronzer, using a fluffy brush to blend it. Then, with a small amount of concealer, draw a thin line between your brows, ending just above your nose. Use some more concealer to brighten the area on either side of your nostrils, blend and you’re done.
