Modern life presents us with new innovations every day, especially when it comes to beauty and looks. YouTube is filled with tutorials on how to perfect your appearance. One of the latest breakthroughs in beauty community is shaping and “redesigning” the whole body with the help of makeup. 

Face – Contouring the face is nothing new in the world of makeup, but it still takes some practice. It is really important to pay attention to your own face shape. With an online help, you can easily check the sheets on how to contour different face shapes.

Breasts – There are many ways to make your breasts appear bigger, from wearing stuffed bras to some much simpler and more comfortable techniques such as effective contouring. Basically, once you put your bra on, look in the mirror and find the natural crease of your breast. It is really important not to go overboard with this, so use a slight hand when applying contour over the already mentioned natural crease that your breasts make when you wear a supporting bra.

Waist & Abs – You might think this is impossible to do but nothing is impossible with today’s technology behind makeup products and steady hands. If you want to create the appearance of a slimmer waist and defined abs, make sure to use a picture as a reference. It can be a picture of a bodybuilder or girls who work out to stay fit and healthy – whatever you find attractive. The picture is important so that you can trace natural creases on your own tummy where the abs are supposed to be and use the highlighter on top. Be very careful when you use darker contour shade on your waist so that it looks completely natural.

Legs – Contouring legs is actually a lot easier than it might seem. It is even easier to contour the legs than the face. This is simply because there are many products like self-tanners and other makeup bits and pieces specially designed for leg use. Simply use a darker shade on the sides of your legs and around the creases on your knees and calves and a lighter shade in the middle and you’re done!

Another quick trick – surgical procedures – Nothing can beat plastic surgeries and interventions when it comes to quick and obvious results in one’s appearance. According to Sydney’s cosmetic surgery professionals, procedures such as skin tightening, wrinkle filling, face and neck lift, liposuction, etc., can create new opportunities for people who felt dissatisfied with how they look.

As you can see, contouring can serve as a quick fix-up, especially for those who are not brave to go “under the knife” or have time to work out.
