Need A Sculpted Face For Your Bikini Body?

It’s that time of year. You’ve booked your holiday and its time to work on the ‘bikini body’ which I’m sure is a myth. Anyway, I’m going to give you the how to sculpt your face to match guide.
Sculpting, it’s such a lovely word that gives us the feeling of something narrowing or getting slimmer. In the world makeup though, it means to create illusion. Bronzing, contouring and sculpting are pretty similar. The idea is to shade certain areas of the face darker than the others, almost like you would when you are sketching. When you sketch you shade certain areas so that the image looks more three dimensional and this is exactly what sculpting does.
There are many types of products that you can do this with, but the simplest is a bronzer (with no orange pigment or shimmer) and a natural haired fantail brush.
When it comes to where its anywhere where we want to cast a shadow on the face. Like in the hollows of the cheeks, the jawline and the hairline.
Now let’s look at how. Firstly, you need to take your brush and get an even amount of bronzer on all the bristles then tap the brush over tissue, so the excess falls off. Then sweep the brush gently but quickly between the tragus bone and towards the smile line at an angle. Twist the brush and repeat to blend. Repeat it if needed. The natural bristles will help you blend the product and stop the ‘orange stripe’ problem. Next you can sweep this brush into the hairline and this will shade around there to shape the forehead. And lastly sculpt the middle part of the jawline on both sides of the face to narrow the jawline or disguise any excess skin.
Look at the diagram. The left side shows without shading or sculpting and the right shows with.
You may not be bikini body ready, but your face is!
