What's Contouring?

Contouring involves using lighter and darker shades of makeup to accentuate certain facial features, such as the cheekbones, the jawline and the bridge of your nose.

Take a Look Back

Inspired by her work as a Broadway makeup artist, Laura debuted her Face Structuring Kit on QVC in 1997, one of the first contouring kits on the market. It sold out completely, making Laura Geller Beauty an instant success story!

Contouring
Step-by-Step

As we age, we can start to lose the bone structure definition that we had in our youth. Get a little lift back with these savvy contouring skills!

1

Chisel Those Cheeks

After applying your regular foundation and concealer, suck in your cheeks to make a “fish” face. Take an angled brush like our Retractable Angled Kabuki Brush and use it to sweep a neutral bronzer in the hollows of your cheek, blending out towards your temples.

Firm Your Jawline

Use your brush to blend the same shade of bronzer directly under your jawline. If you have a fuller face, you can also apply bronzer under your chin as well!

3

Straighten Your Nose

Looking to streamline the shape of your nose? Blend a small amount of bronzer down the sides of the bridge of your nose. (TIP: If you’re using our Retractable Angled Kabuki Brush, you may want to pull up the cover and densify the bristles to get the right shape!)

Brighten With Highlighter

Brighten up and bring it all together! Using your same brush, apply a brightening highlighter like our Baked Natural Glow Highlighter in the opposite areas of the bronzer. That would be the tops of your cheekbones, the sides of your face above your jawline and the bridge of your nose!
