Want a slimmer nose? Sharper, defined cheekbones? Or how about hiding your double chin? Welcome to the world of contouring, which can do all of this, and a whole lot more!
If you suffer from problematic acne, you’re probably thinking that contouring may not work for you. But in fact, you couldn’t be more wrong, as there are so many products available these days which help to effectively cover acne, allowing the perfect base to contour. The secret to a great contouring base is to develop a smooth, flawless coverage first, so we’re going to show you how to do this properly, using the best covering and contouring products out there!
Step 1: Prime
Acne prone skin needs the most gentle, non-irritant primer applied to create a calm, smooth and hydrated base. If your skin has lots of redness – which is typical for acne prone skin- its worth using a green colored concealer to fade any redness and angry looking areas. Prime first, let it sink in the skin for a minute, and then dab on any corrective concealers to give yourself the perfect base, all ready for your foundation.
Make sure your Primer is designed for sensitive skin, such as the Pur Minerals Color Correcting Primer Prep and Perfect which works hand in hand with a correcting concealer. We love this Stila CC Color Correcting Stick, where the green core center color corrects redness and contains skin-loving ingredients to help promote an even skin tone.
