Angelina Jolie’s Makeup Artist Shares Contour Tips
Break it down before you begin.
“I would start out with a base, and then I would add my highlights and then I would add the contour.”
Identify and highlight the under-the-eye triangle.
“If you took a pencil from your nose to your upper cheekbone, you would just take that ‘V’ from the corner of your eye to the nose and highlight that whole area under your eye. That would help enhance your cheekbones – and with a light contour. I like to work more with highlights than doing too much contour.”
Fill in the hollows.
“For the contour, you feel where your cheekbone is, and you kind of go right under that – and don’t take it too far to your mouth. I would keep it, you know, just halfway from your ear to the midpart of your cheekbone. Just don’t take it too far down; then it becomes obvious.”
Blend the contouring color up and away.
“If you’re using a cream, you blend it out with your sponge until there’s no hard lines — and then same with the powder, except you would use a brush. From where you put it, blend it up.”
Don’t forget the eyes.
“The thing with cheekbones is – I would say the more defined your eyes are, that the focus will be taken away.”
