Contouring is something I have always done, but I never quite feel that I've done it right. I don't have cheekbones to be proud of, in fact I'm a little hamster-ish of face (read: chipmunk, squirrel, bunny - anything that stores food in it's cheeks!) and to achieve a natural, but WOW contour is something I have longed to do. Step in Real Techniques Setting Brush.
Magic in a brush. Like a magic wand. But a magic brush. You get the picture. Now, browsing the blogs as I do, I had seen most people use this as a under-eye powder setting brush, or as a concealer brush, again for under the eyes. I personally try not to use too much product under the eyes, as on myself it seems to look far from natural. I purchased this on a whim, exclusively and solely with the intention of using it to contour.
And can I just say WELL DONE to Samantha Chapman, what a brilliant design this is. I previously had the Real Techniques Blush Brush and found it far too wide a brush head to achieve any kind of shape on my face, but the Setting brush is perfection. I such in my face in a kind of angry-fish look, and apply softly and quickly to under my cheekbone (contour of choice is NYX Taupe and Avon Earthern Rose), and I suddenly look quite the chiseled young woman! Instant cheekbones in a brush.
And that is all I would like to say!
How do you go about creating cheekbones? Am I the only one who finds it hard?!
