We love hearing from our panel of beauty pros about the latest and greatest beauty tricks. Today, we're lucky enough to hear from makeup pro Rachel Halsey, who sounds off on the tools needed to contour correctly.Contouring has become a household word alongside the ever-popular smoky eye and fake lashes. The face-shaping process may seem intimidating at first, but with the right technique and tool, you’ll find it’s pretty simple. When done right, contouring can deliver sculpted cheekbones, a crisp brow, and even a more defined pout. However, the wrong contouring can make you look a bit clown-like. Having the right tools is key for high performance. Take a look at my suggestions for the perfect contouring brushes. And, for a complete contouring guide, check out this tutorial.
Your cheeks, nose and forehead are not the only things that can be shaped and defined. Show off your lips by investing in a lip brush that will paint on the perfect pout and enhance your cupid’s bow (or draw it in if you don’t have one).
Product Recommendation: Lancôme Retractable Lip Brush #9, Shu Uemura Kolinsky Portable Extra Lip Brush
