“Science-based contour” is the latest makeup trend on TikTok, endorsed by Dr.Charles. Although contouring techniques became popular thanks to the Kardashians, not all faces are the same and is the subject of study, so literally this technique has scientific support for us to look flawless.
This new technique promises symmetrical results and is adaptable, using scientific principles. Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, the contour is customized, making it exciting and effective at enhancing everyone’s beauty uniquely.
Learn how to make your contour according to science
Step 1: Draw the line
Start by drawing a line that starts from the side of your nose and extends upwards until it reaches the top of your ear. This line will help to know where you should highlight your cheekbones, adding dimension to your face. Draw another line that originates from the corner of your mouth and extends to the corner of your eye.
Step 2: Identify the important point
Where these two lines intersect on your face, you will find a crucial point of connection that is essential in the technique, as it marks the place where you should apply makeup for the best results. This point is considered the highlight of your face and is where you seek to achieve maximum facial projection.
Step 3: Makeup
Using the connection point as a guide (that part has already been deleted), apply your cream contour below the lines. You’ll use a darker shade of makeup and create a deeper shadow right where the line crossover was, which adds definition to your face. Make sure the makeup curve is centered at this point for a balanced, flattering look. You diffuse it, and you will have achieved it. Enjoy those Bella Hadid-style cheekbones.
