It's all about contrast
Pascale Guégan, can you explain the basic principle behind using make-up to sculpt and enhance facial features? “The key is to use two contrasting shades – one light and one dark. The lighter colour should be as close as possible to your natural skin tone – or one shade darker if you’ve been out in the sun! This colour brightens certain areas of your face, such as your forehead and eyes, so that they reflect the light and give you a radiant complexion. The darker shade (it should be one or two tones darker) is used to structure and emphasise, to reduce plump cheeks and disguise a double chin, giving you a stunning, sculpted look.”
What you should do
What you should avoid
- Do not choose a really dark shade foundation to contour, this should only be one shade lighter than your natural skin tone, you want to create a natural-looking contour.
