By applying products in the right place (and in the right way) you have the power to fully visually change your facial features. You do not need heavy powder, contouring and a lot of concealer, especially as we enter the hot and hot summer days.
For example, if you want to emphasize the facial structure, use lightweight creamy products in precisely strategic locations. Do not overdo it with products and apply a little by little. You can give the face some bronze and shine. In addition to the sun-kissed Coco Chanel look, use the draping technique and apply the bronzer to the tips of the cheekbones, draw on the cheeks to the nose. For this technique, it's easiest to use compact products and wide, soft brushes that will in one move blend the product with the skin and will not leave visible sharp lines.
Leave aside the heavy concealers and techniques of contouring in the summer. Take advantage of the splendid and glittering products. By emphasizing the inner corner of the eye, the middle of the lid and brow bone, you create an illusion of a well-rested face. You can always lighten with highlighting correctors and concealers a bit. In the inner edge of the eye apply a salmon color pencil. It looks more natural than white and you get the same eye-catching effect.
If your eyes are closer together, pull the eyeliner towards the outer edges of your eye. For eyes with lowered eyelids, try the thicker shade of the eclectic liner to lift the look. Almond shaped eyes look great with a cat eyeliner.
When it comes to lips, use the shade that is the color of your lips. If you want to create full, shiny lips, line the outer parts of the lips, blend the line with fingers and apply gloss.
Strobing and other techniques of strongly emphasizing facial contours should be replaced by a simple trick of applying very small amount of face oil to the highest points of the face. The oil will give a natural shine, will nourish the skin and prevent drying out during the day.
