How to choose cosmetics for facial sculpting

Correction of the face is the correct basis for evening makeup. The play of light and shadows helps to make the face visually thinner, and the lines of cheekbones and chin are softer. Sculpturing is inappropriate in daylight. Thanks to cosmetics, women of fashion create the illusion of an ideal oval shape, emphasize cheekbones and give the nose an attraction.

Sculpting the face is performed using tonal stems. The main thing is that highlighter, bronzer or palette powder should be of good quality and not slip in a short time.

The choice of cosmetics for face correction depends on the type of sculpting. They are distinguished by two:

  • Dry is used for daytime make-up. Brush blush, powder and shadows.
  • Fat assumes the use of dense creams and tonal bases that are appropriate to use in the evening. The method requires attention to detail and concentration, since improper feathering of lines will lead to failure.

To maximize the natural bend of the face, the main thing is to choose the right shades. Manufacturers of cosmetics offer users palettes with a choice of colors. With their help you can finish your own impeccable make-up yourself. The main difficulty remains in thorough shading.

Step by step instructions

A dark corrector is applied from the ear to the mouth with a brush( on the zone of the cavity formed after retraction of the cheeks).A bone or a light hailer is treated with a powder.

Color correction by face shape

Harmonically, the shape of the face can be harmonized only if correctly defined. In total, make-up artists distinguish seven types:

  • The oval face is considered the standard of beauty, so its adjustment should be minimal. To make bright accents, you can highlight the light center of the face, and the area of ​​the cheekbones processed with a dark corrector.
  • An extended face, similar to a rectangle, needs to soften the corners and maximize the shape to the oval. The wide forehead and jaw lines are corrected by a voice-frequency cream. To expand the narrow face, you should highlight the area of ​​cheekbones with blush.
  • The square shape is characterized by equal proportions of the length and width of the face. It is necessary to darken the lines under the lower jaw, and soften the contours with a dark corrector.
  • The round shape of the face tapers due to dark tones along the contour. Blush are applied by the type of a triangle. The inverted triangle or heart-shaped shape needs to soften the chin in a dark tone. The purpose of sculpting is to balance the upper zone with the lower one. Darkening of the chin in this case should be done as carefully as possible, so as not to narrow it more strongly. The situation saves a bright flare haylaytera.

  • The shape of the rhombus needs to be adjusted in the widest part of the face by entering the temporal zone. The forehead and chin are brightened. In the form of a triangle, blush is applied.
  • The trapezoid or pear-shaped form should be mitigated by the narrowing of the lower chin zone. A dark corrector is spread out along the sides of cheekbones and cheeks, a light accent is added to the forehead. In the form of a triangle, blush is applied.
  • The wearers of too thin and narrow face makeup artists recommend to apply hailer horizontal strokes. Then it will visually expand and look more attractive.

Tip! Before applying a bronzer or highlighter, shake off the brush to avoid overdoing cosmetic means.

Hide the shortcomings of a round face

More often than not, round-faced girls resort to sculpture. Optionally, the wearer is overweight, but a wide forehead and a weakly-expressed chin are not enough for anyone. Therefore, when color correction is important to achieve the effect of reducing cheeks and lengthening the face.

Dark powder is applied to the side surface of cheeks and cheekbones, angles of the lower jaw. Blush should be applied in the shape of an inverted triangle, with a directed apex toward the mouth.

The wide face of the highlighter is applied with vertical strokes. The center of the chin, the bridge of the nose, the forehead and the areas around the eyebrows and eyes are clarified.

For the ideal sculpting of a round face, it is important to follow the rules:

  • Dodge the areas that you need to hide with a dark corrector. It is applied to the cheekbones, nose and contour of the face.
  • Pay attention to the neck. The facialized face looks disharmoniously in tandem with a natural neck. A dark corrector will save the situation.
