Natural makeup can be used to achieve contouring effect

Natural makeup can be used to achieve contouring effect
Three-dimensional artistry was one of the popular techniques used by experts working on shows at London Fashion Week and women can easily emulate the concept with natural makeup.

Vivienne Westwood's Red show was one of those that saw makeup artists playing with light and shadow by using contouring on models' cheekbones and eye sockets.

Beryl Barnard, education director at London School of Beauty & Makeup, with 25 years' experience in the beauty industry, said that women can buy a contouring set, but they do not necessarily need specialist products.

They can use natural makeup instead, going for a highlighter as an eye shadow and an eye colour as a shader to achieve the same result, she explained.

'The application is light to accentuate and dark to recede; for example, highlight browbone down to cheekbone, blush on the apple of the cheek and dark to shade below blush line, which will vary from face to face,' Ms Barnard added.
