Contouring
I know this concept is fairly new and a mystery to some and unfortunately there is no generic way to contour your face! First, find out your face shape. Then use shading to disguise or make areas look smaller and highlight to make areas appear more prominent. For example, if you have a long face, you might want to use shading at the top and bottom of your face and highlight the central areas of your face to focus the attention there. I recommend the NYX contour palette! You can also use a simple bronzer like Benefit Hoola. For cream contour the best thing to use is a foundation or concealer that’s 2-3 shades darker than your natural complexion (for contour) and a foundation or concealer that’s 2-3 shades lighter (for highlighting).

CONTOUR MAKE-UP TIPS
Foundation application
For a flawless application I always recommend using a beauty blender sponge to apply. For a more dewy, natural finish, dampen your sponge with water or a nice vitamin spray. For a complete full coverage use your sponge dry.

Mascara
Have you found that your mascara runs out quickly? Why not try adding a few drops of contact lens solution to loosen the product? You’ll get plenty more out of that tube! I love YSL.

MRS GLOSS AND THE GOSS/ MAKE-UP TIPS FROM THE TOPFalse strip eyelashes
TOP TIP ALERT!

For the easiest and fastest application, apply glue to the strip lash, allow it to go tacky. Then place tweezers at the outer corner of the lash (this gives you more control over where you place it) place the outer corner of the strip lash on the outer corner of your eye, as close to your natural lash line as possible. Hold it there for a second or two until you know it has adhered. Then, using your tweezers, carefully push the rest of the lash down into place.

Why not try using some tissue to create that sharp line effect with your eyeshadow on your outer eye? By holding the tissue firmly in place at an angle from the corner of your eye and the tail of your eyebrow, then applying eyeshadow, you’ll get that super slick line without sticking tape to your face. Added bonus? The tissue also catches any fallout from your shadow so that you don’t ruin your makeup!
