How To: Contour Your Face

Learning how to contour your face is a great way to bring out your cheekbones, define your face shape, and generally show off your favourite features. It might seem a little scary if you’ve never tried it before but, don’t worry, we’re here to show you how to get a great everyday contour using the ModelCo Contour Stick! (Psst… you can pick between the ModelCo Contour Stick and the Megalash Mascara when you get your October Birchbox!)


It’s time to get creative! Want to subtly define your cheekbones? Suck in your cheeks a little then trace the Contour Stick through the hollows, just beneath your cheekbones. This is a great starting point if you’re new to contouring but, if you’re feeling ready for the next step, you can also trace the Contour Stick along your jawline and down the sides of your nose.


Using your fingertips, blend the formula into your skin. The creamy texture will mesh with your complexion for natural-looking definition with an ‘invisible’ finish. The best thing about this Contour Stick is that it works for a whole array of skin tones (even our pale-skinned staffer, Liberty!) and you can build up the pigment if you prefer a more dramatic look.


Beautiful, subtly defined cheekbones – creating a polished make-up look for daytime or evening.
