I also forgot to mention that I’m on a budget, so if you could reccommend more affordable products opposed to maybe Mac or anything from Sephora, thanks!posted over 3 years ago

I’m not makeup expert…but this is just what I think would work best. For contouring your face, I use a mix of products. For my cheeks, I use CoverGirl Golden Tan bronzer from the drugstore like Walgreens/RiteAid/Target, etc, but I have a pretty fair complexion. So check out shades that are slightly darker than your complexion. As for highlighter shades to accentuate the cheekbones, etc. I use a stick highlighter, CoverGirl Illuminator. It works pretty well. Also, just find different eyeshadows to help blend and make things look more natural. Sometimes, I use an old golden brown eyeshadow for contouring when I don’t have bronzer with me.
As for brushes, I use Sephora eyeshadow brush kit. But I heard that Target has a good brush set too…not sure about the brand though. Angled brushes are good for contouring the bridge of the nose, but good standard blush brush works well for contouring cheeks. You don’t really need a specific brush to do all this….I know people who just use their fingers and a couple q-tips and it looks the same.

I use bare minerals all over face warmth bronzer to contour my face. Angled brush for the cheeks. You basically create a triangular shape from your ear downward towards the corner of your lips. With the nose use a smaller angled brush. It depends how you want to shape your nose. Generally I use the bronzer along the sides of my bridge, and a little just above the nostrils. When contouring you also need a highlighter shade. So a light shimmery powder above the bronzer triangles on your cheeks and down the centre of the bridge of your nose. I’m pretty tan right now, so I should be around your skin tone. Though I’m paler in the winter months and go down a shade. Sephora supplies all my make up necessities.posted over 3 years ago
