Contouring

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.
