When contouring the nose, I see a lot of people draw a small horizontal line right over the tip of the nose. Where is the proper placement and what exactly does this do?

Asked by

That makes the tip of the nose look a little more pointed!

By placing that little horizontal line over the tip you’re making a shadow to look like the nose bridge curves in making the tip look more pointed :)

Best cream contour products?

Asked by

You can just use a cream or liquid foundation about 3 - 4 shades darker than your own skin tone! Usually stick foundations or concealers work best for the ease of just swiping them on where you need it. But you can totally just use a darker liquid foundation or cream bronzer and apply them with a brush.

Try stick cream products like

Maybelline Fit Me Shine Free Stick Foundation $8 You can use a darker shade to easily swipe in the hollows of your cheeks, forehead, etc.

Bobbi Brown Stick Foundation $44

But you can just use any darker foundation, concealer or cream bronzer and place them where you like to contour. Either just in the hollows of your cheeks or a full face contour.

Real Techniques has great brush sets for around $20 each. Available at Ulta, Target, Walmart, Walgreens or online!  

ELF makes a brush set of all their $3 studio brushes for $30, not the highest quality brushes but great for the price! Available online only at

Sedona Lace makes great quality brush sets, professional quality. More on the pricey side but a GREAT investment. Can buy them online here.

Sigma makes fab quality brush sets, professional quality. Also more on the pricey side but totally worth the investment if makeup is something you take seriously and do often. They make many different sets ranging from eyes to face to a mixture of both. Can buy them online here.
