How To Contour Your Face

I've learned of contouring when I used to work for a Television company. We used to have to do a lot of photo shoots and commercials. And of course, I got to see the amazing affect of what makeup can do on the models. Contouring is actually one of the very basic and easy step that brought about dramatic changes to a face. A lot of the models that we worked with don't have a "perfect oval" shape face. So with the help of powders, foundations, bronzers and highlighter, we were able to transform their face shapes and gave it an illusion of a perfect, symmetrical shape. Contouring is also perfect for making your face appear thinner and more proportion. So how do you contour correctly? Well, I came across this article which I thought is pretty straight forward on showing you how to contour according to the shape of your face.

Here are some examples taken from MovingMakeup:
