ILLUMINATOR & CONTOURING.. WHEN & WEAR?? + HOW YOU GET ITS "GLO" POWER
Ok ladies JLo Kerry Washington even Beyonce are prime examples of that Glo illuminator can give off, Unlike Bronzer that gives a sunkissed look Illuminator is available in liquid
or powder form
For Bronzer I use one by Mac Cosmetics.
In this picture I used illuminator as a highlighter combined with my bronzer & it made me look phenomenal. Notice the difference how it contoured me.if you desire a golden finish use illuminator if u want contouring & glo use both illuminator & bronzer.
Ok I know u gals have built up your questions so here where I make it simple for you ladies heres a couple charts to follow & determine where the highlighter goes if u use both put in same places but add illuminator to top bronzer to bottom that will create contrast
I <3 THIS LOOK ON MY CLIENTS,HERES 1 I JUST DIE FOR
Let's start with contouring (it's the dark brown color in the photo above). When you contour, use a nice taupe shade or a deep bronze color. Try to avoid using most bronzers when you are contouring, you'll just look too orange.
ok now for the good stuff heres a Chart to know for sure wha goes where...
1. The temple.
The purpose is to make your face a little more oval in shape. As you might know already, the oval shape is the ideal shape for makeup application.
2. The nose.
Try avoiding making your nose mega-narrow.
This would completely alter your face. Imagine the shape and size of your face with a narrow nose. You will look too artificial! So use this technique just to define your nose so that you wouldn't look flat in pictures.
This is my favorite part to contour.It really makes a lot of difference! It can make you look like you've lost 5-10 lbs! Hahaha! Just be careful not to pile it on, otherwise, you will look like you have a streak of dirt on your face.
Just make it subtle and blend!
4. Jaw line.
This defines your face more. It can easily disguise double chins
and it really separates your face from your neck. It also adds shape to your whole face.
5. Eye Crease.
The purpose of contouring this part is to create the illusion of depth in the eyes. It adds drama to any makeup, and make your eyes pop out and really 3 dimensional.
6. Inner corners of the eyes.
Make your nose appear narrower and your eyes deeper by adding shadow on this area
1. The central part of your forehead. This creates an illusion of an oval face because it highlights the central part of your face. You highlight your forehead to bring it out from the rest of your face.
2. Under eye and cheek
3. Chin. This will bring out your chin area so that your chin is separated from your jaw line. Plus, this completes the oval-illusion we are trying to achieve.
4. Nose line.
5. Brow bone.
This is very important. You don't want any harsh lines.
Heres Some of My Work
**Please remember: this takes lot of practice. Chances are it won't look perfect the first time you try it. Don't get dicouraged, you'll get the hang of it!!**
TIP: highlight is light bronzer is darker*
