Say goodbye to camera-induced chipmunk cheeks and hello to a slimmer, more confident version of yourself on screen. Let’s dive into the world of contour to learn how to make your face look slimmer on camera.

Whenever I mention the word “contour”, I notice my students get nervous. They’re all, “I knew it! I just knew Salina was going to turn me into a clown.” Not so, my friend. Contour is just a fancy way of saying we are going to strategically create some definition according to your natural bone structure. (Keyword: natural). No one is coming out of this looking like Halloween came early.

The Contour Palette & Contour Brush by LORAC is perfect if you are just starting your journey with applying contour. Now, repeat after me.

  • 13:21 How to apply contour for a slimmer-looking nose
    To create a slimmer-looking nose with contouring, choose a matte contour shade slightly darker than your skin tone. Apply it along the sides of your nose, starting from the inner corner of your eyebrows and extending towards your nostrils. Blend well to soften any harsh lines, and use a highlighting shade down the center of your nose for added dimension. This technique enhances the nose’s shape and gives the illusion of a more refined, slender appearance.

Here are Some Tips To Apply Makeup for a Round Face:

  • Focus on the Eyes: Redirect attention away from the roundness of your face by attracting attention to your eyes. Experiment with eyeshadow shades and eyeliner styles that enhance your eye shape and make them pop. Play around with different eye makeup looks to find what suits you best.
  • Matte is Best for Camera: When it comes to choosing makeup products for a round face, opt for matte finishes. Matte foundations and blushes create a smoother appearance. Matte lip colors can also help to achieve a more polished look while keeping the focus on the contours you’ve created.
  • Frame Your Face with Hairstyles: Your hair can play a significant role in creating the illusion of a slimmer face. Consider hairstyles that elongate your features and draw attention away from the roundness. Side-swept bangs, layered cuts, or hairstyles with volume at the crown can add dimension and balance to your face shape.
