Struggling with knowing where and how to apply contour?

If you could only contour one place on your face, contour your jawline. It’s super easy with cream contour!

In this tutorial, I’ll show you my favorite contour hacks to get jaw-dropping results on your makeup looks. Let’s get started.

Tools and materials:

  • Contour
  • Contour brush
Brushing down jawline

1. Brush down your jawline

Start at the back of your ear and run the brush back and forth along your jawline. 

Applying contour

2. Avoid going too high or too low

Just remember: Contour doesn’t go on the side of your face. 

Applying contour

You also don’t want to place it too low under your neck. It should go right along your jawbone and it’ll be perfect.

Blending contour

3. Blend it into your neckline

Take your brush and blend the contour down and back on your neckline after placing it.
