  • lot of drugstore videos then you know

  • come on over to the little fambam

  • join the party over here and yeah so

  • alright let's get started first off I

  • want to talk about the type of products

  • that I'm going to be using so we are

  • going to be going over contouring

  • bronzing highlighting and blush those

  • are the steps of the face that I think

  • can really really make or break a makeup

  • looks so for me I typically tend to

  • reach for powder so that's what I'm

  • going to be using in this video if you

  • do like creams there's no problem with

  • that if you find that easier to work

  • with cream based products definitely you

  • can go ahead and do that and you can

  • pretty much use this a

  • tips and tricks that I'm going to be

  • showing you guys this look weird that

  • little little fishtail back there you

  • can pretty much use the same techniques

  • that I'm going to be sharing with you

  • guys with cream products but yeah for me

  • I like to use powders most of the time

  • so we are going to start off with

  • contour now contouring it can change

  • your face shape tremendously I feel like

  • a lot of us already know that by now but

  • there are definitely different ways to

  • contour and I feel like a lot of times I

  • see people contouring the exact same way

  • no matter what their face shape is which

  • I don't think is the most beneficial way

  • I mean it can definitely give you some

  • more definition but it's not going to be

  • the most effective way to slim down your

  • face if you have a round face shape so

  • the product that I'm going to be using

  • today to contour is one of my favorite

  • products of all time so this is mac

  • cosmetics shapes or sculpting powder

  • it's just in a single little pin that I

  • put into this palette but that is the

  • actual product and I Willis all the

  • products down below in case you want to

  • check them out or if you're interested

  • in the exact products that I'm using but

  • honestly any contouring palette that you

  • have at home will do or even any

  • contouring shade a couple really nice

  • ones are the NYX NYX contouring palette

  • the ABH contour palette is really good

  • and the Kat Von D pat very very good all

  • three of those but yeah this is what I'm

  • going to be using so I think that

  • brushes are one of the most important

  • things to take into consideration when

  • you are contouring and now I don't think

  • a lot of people talked about this and I

  • don't know why because it makes such a

  • difference so there are tons of

  • different shaped contouring brushes as

  • you guys probably know these are my

  • three favorite shapes that I reach for

  • the most

  • so the first one is this one this is

  • actually the one that I use on most days

  • so this is the Sigma small contour fo5 I

  • love that has like a rounded brush and I

  • think kind of like buff in the product

  • and really really get that sculpted

  • cheekbones look the second one that I

  • really like is actually the morphe r8

  • and most circumstances I don't like the

  • brushes that are super flat like this

  • for my face shape or for round face

  • shapes in general but this one I like

  • because it's not synthetic it's a

  • natural hair bristle brush natural hair

  • bristles brush

  • you guys know what I mean but because of

  • that it actually blends in the powder is

  • pretty smoothly so I like this one a lot

  • and then the last one my ride-or-die Mac

  • 168 this is such a amazing contouring

  • brush this is not really I don't think

  • this is really meant for contouring I

  • mean it might be I don't really know you

  • know makeup is makeup and there's rules

  • but they are to be broken but this one

  • is personally one of my favorite brushes

  • I would say these two are the ones that

  • I reach for the most

  • out of any of it there was a time where

  • I would not put this down like probably

  • six months where I never use another

  • contour brush so very solid options both

  • of these and the more if you want as

  • well just depends kind of what shape

  • you're looking for but I would recommend

  • any three of these shapes I'm going to

  • try to show you one that I would not

  • recommend so I would not recommend

  • something like this for contouring just

  • because you want to stay away from

  • anything too fluffy and too wide because

  • that is going to really make too harsh

  • of lines so definitely stay away from

  • anything like that and you'll be good to

  • go

  • I think for today I will use the Isle

  • which I use out of these two I love both

  • of these so much so it's really hard for

  • me to choose okay I think I'm going to

  • use this one so the Sigma smile contour

  • I take a little bit of the product

  • I do tap off the excess just so that we

  • don't get too much and then I'll just

  • start going in on my cheekbones and the

  • trick to contouring for a round face is

  • not to bring it too much towards the

  • nose so you want to stop it about maybe

  • halfway towards the eye I find that that

  • makes the best shape if you bring it in

  • too much it will actually make your face

  • look shorter thus making it look more

  • round so definitely don't take it too

  • far in as you may see in like some

  • diagrams that that are all over

  • Instagram I only recommend taking it

  • towards maybe half the eye at most and

  • when you're contrary you always want to

  • be blending upwards or blending

  • backwards towards the ear so that is the

  • best way to get that kind of swooped up

  • look that we're all going for and if

  • you're blending inward you are going to

  • kind of be closing out the face a little

  • bit more so those are kind of like my

  • techniques on how to get the contour

  • exactly perfect and you definitely

  • definitely definitely do not want to

  • take it too wide as well

  • if you

  • know much about contouring and

  • highlighting you know contouring is what

  • brings stuff in highlighting is what

  • brings us out look at me like this

  • because okay my nail broke these are my

  • real nails too so I'm like really upset

  • because what do I do now like do I just

  • cut all them or do I just get a steak

  • now put on just a pinkie and then just

  • let it let it be let it live over there

  • I was so upset when this happened not

  • going to lie but anyway so back to

  • contrary when you are trying to slim

  • your face you do want to apply contour

  • to the outer corners of the face or the

  • outer edge of the face I should say so I

  • just take that same exact brush same

  • product Mac shade stir and I start to go

  • across the kind of pimples and I blend

  • this in really close to my hairline and

  • disperse the product outwards after that

  • so that it looks very flawless but this

  • is going to be key in giving you that

  • slimmed down effect because we want that

  • all-over crook right on the side so

  • that's why we are adding a lot of

  • contour to those areas you see what a

  • difference that already makes if you

  • just do this line it will look it will

  • actually widen it because you're making

  • a line here but not closing it off so

  • this part is essential I'm telling you

  • it is key as DJ Khaled would say so

  • definitely blend it into this corner

  • over here so that we can you know really

  • work to slim down the sides of the face

  • are you now moving to a board this is a

  • mistake that I made for years and I

  • never really realized that is actually

  • making my face look more round so what I

  • need you guys to do right now do not go

  • another second without doing this never

  • ever ever if you have a round face if

  • you have a different shape face this is

  • actually perfectly fine but if you have

  • a round face do not put bronzer or

  • contour right in the middle here you

  • want to keep it only on the sides of the

  • face because if you put it here it will

  • shrink down your face and thus make it

  • look more round if you put it here it's

  • again going to have a slimming effect

  • making it look a little bit longer and

  • you know let's round so what I'm going

  • to do I'm literally still using the same

  • brush the same powder and I just go

  • ahead and kind of buff that powder okay

  • little heavy-handed there but I just go

  • ahead and kind of like buff that powder

  • into the sides of the temple here and I

  • will sometimes take like a bigger

  • fluffier powder brush and just kind of

  • buff out the edges of this guy just

  • because obviously on the forehead you

  • don't want it to be too harsh because it

  • can look a little crazy sometimes but

  • like I said do not mark my words do not

  • put anything right here because it will

  • make your face look more round and while
