If you are new to contouring and trying to figure out the best contouring for your face shape. I found this great poster online to help you. Keeps me right.
I have quite a wide face-my sister says it's 'heart shaped'. I probably try to contour the areas specified in picture one but also incorporating shading around my nose to make it look thinner, as shown in picture five.
I completely believe in trial and error. I will get it right one day I'm sure. One thing to remember is to blend properly, there's nothing worse than harsh contour lines. Keep blending for a natural, softer finish.
I find the Naked Basics palette hosts great contouring shades - eyeshadows I know, but also great for shading.
What face shape do you have? Please share your hints and tips below.
