As part of my series in making DIY makeup for Christmas gifts, this is a layered contour-blush-highlighter I made that lets you contour in one swipe!
The tutorial is available in video version here:
But this is the pictorial version for those of you who prefer reading!
First of all, you'll need:
- A contour shade, a blush shade & a highlighting shade (I just used Emina Cosmetics' eyeshadow trio in Neapolitan)
- A spatula/anything that can break up the eyeshadow
- A pan (or you can even use a regular jar)
- Disinfecting alcohol
Crush up the eyeshadow and place them in the pan in layers.
Pour the alcohol in:
Make sure there's no dry spots!
To check if it's ready for pressing, gently place tissue over it, and then carefully peel back the tissue. If there's still stuff stuck on the tissue like in the picture below, it's not ready.
This is ready:
You can press by just layering tissue/cloth over it and then pressing down with your palms.
Or you can get fancy and press patterns into it with a stamp!
And that's it! You can contour your face in just one swipe!
