Hey makeup junkies! We’re in Melbourne for the Virgin Fashion Festival this week. Can’t wait to see Josh Goot! Putting our fashion looks together reminded us that we’ll also need to put our best face forward. So if you have been looking for the best face contouring products and tools, we’ve rounded them up here for you. Remember, it’s not about changing how you look but enhancing your natural beauty. Old-school contouring—the technique of using shading to enhance and define facial features—used to mean layers upon layers (upon layers) of dark, dramatic makeup, harsh angles, and pretty much everything worn by the cast of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Erase those images from your mind (if you can). The twenty-first century version is all about enhancing cheekbones, slimming your face, and tricking the eye in a believable way. Simply put: “It’s no longer about carving a line into your cheek,” says makeup artist Ashleigh Ciucci.
