13 Amazing Contouring Tutorials From Pinterest That Will Demystify Defining Your Face

The art of contouring is not an easy one to master. It takes control, restraint and a willingness to play around until you get it right. Prior to blending, your face might look like an actual mask; after, it’s suddenly brighter, more defined, and accentuated in all the right places.

In the near future, we’ll be doing a how-to on the topic for ourselves and it is a little nerve-wracking (but hopefully you’ll tune in regardless). In order to prep, I have been looking all over Pinterest for cool contouring tutorials that will work for a variety of face shapes and skin tones. After all, as we saw yesterday with our roundup of tutorials for dirty hair, Pinterest can be the magical land of plentiful beauty assistance! So, let’s take a look at some of the best ones out there right now, shall we?

      I fear my skills would ensure I would never make it past the 3rd or 4th step…which means I’d walk around looking like all the concealers threw up on my face.

      • Lindsey Conklin

        yes. we share the same fear.

      I’m not embarrassed to admit that neither my mom nor my step mom was into make up and I didn’t really start wearing makeup til college and Lauren Conrads book taught me basically everything I know. She is honestly SO good at tutorials.

        Her book on style I think it’s a must have.

      They look like cool, painted warriors before the concealer is blended. I’m dumb enough I’d probably get that far and then leave it.

      I like highlighting… hate cheekbone contouring! I mean I just don’t think it looks good. Half of these girls look fantastic at the end, the other half look ridiculous.

      Still need skills to do this. Something I don’t have.

      With hopeful spirits, I tried the whole blending thing today…looked OK leaving the house (before the clarity coffee brings had arrived I must note), only to return from work this evening resembling some grotesque Buffalo Bill version of an Oompa Loompa. Terrifying.
