Learn why cool-toned contouring powder is better for fair skin

Makeup, especially contouring products, can enhance key features when applied correctly. There are tons of YouTube videos that show where to apply these products, but do you know which colors work best on fair skin? Don't feel bad if you don't. You're not alone.
Contouring products, unlike bronzer, should be cool-toned with no shimmer or glitter. Contouring powder should create a shadow. And you know what shadows do? They disappear. Essentially, your contour should create a shadow wherever you place it, which also gives your face the illusion of being slimmer.

If you have fair skin, choose a cool-toned contouring palette that has colors that are one to two shades darker than your natural skin tone. This will help you avoid using products that are too dark.
Materials

Instructions
1. Gently swirl the brush in the contouring powder.
2. Tap the brush handle to get rid of the excess powder.
3. Sweep the brush under your cheekbones in a diagonal line by starting near your ear and brushing downward toward your mouth. Tip: Placing two fingers next to your mouth will help you know where to stop applying powder.
4. Apply more contouring powder, if needed, then swirl the brush against your cheek to diffuse the pigment.
5. If your forehead appears too wide to you, contour just the outer corners of it as well. This gives the illusion of a rounder face.
