Where to Apply Contour
Choose a color that’s darker than your natural skin tone to enhance and define the “shadows” on your face, adding depth and contour. With the larger side of the IIID Brush, apply this contour shade around the perimeter of your face, along your neck, the sides of your nose, and under your cheekbones.
Face Shapes and Contouring Techniques
Guidelines for contouring work well for everyone, with the highlight color used to brighten and the contour color used to minimize. However, depending on your face shape, there are specific techniques to enhance and emphasize certain areas.
For instance, someone with a large forehead may apply a thicker line of contour on the top of their forehead. Different face shapes require different contouring techniques, such as adding contour color to the sides of the forehead for oval-shaped faces or contouring along the jawline for round faces.

Contouring Techniques for Different Face Shapes
Seint contouring techniques vary depending on the face shape, and understanding the specific techniques for each shape can help you enhance your natural beauty. Whether you have a diamond, heart, oblong, rectangle, pear, oval, or round face shape, there are contouring methods that can accentuate your features and create a harmonious balance.
Diamond Face Shape
For those with a diamond face shape, which is characterized by a narrow forehead and chin, contouring involves adding the contour color strategically to create balance. Apply the contour color to the top middle section of the forehead and the bottom tip of the chin. Additionally, add contour below the cheekbones to enhance their definition.
Heart Face Shape
Heart-shaped faces have a wider forehead that tapers down to a pointed chin. To contour this face shape, focus on the sides of the forehead, below the cheekbones, and on the point of the chin. By adding contour in these areas, you can create a more symmetrical and balanced look.
Oblong Face Shape
Oblong faces are longer and less wide than oval faces. To contour an oblong face, apply contour along the forehead, lightly along the cheekbones, and around the bottom edge of the face. This technique adds dimension and creates the illusion of a rounder face shape.
Rectangle Face Shape
Rectangle-shaped faces have similar characteristics to oblong faces but with more angular features. To contour a rectangle face shape, focus on the sides of the face and up the sides of the forehead. Highlight the tip of the forehead and the tip of the chin to soften the angular edges.
Pear Face Shape
Pear-shaped faces are wider on the bottom half and narrower on top. To contour a pear face shape, apply contour along the jawline to soften the edges of the face. This technique helps bring balance to the overall face shape and emphasizes the natural beauty of the features.
Oval Face Shape
Oval faces are considered the most balanced and versatile face shape. A thin line of contour along the sides of the forehead and jawline will help emphasize the natural beauty of the face. Additionally, a thick line of contour along the cheekbones can enhance the bone structure and add definition.
Round Face Shape
Round faces have soft and curved features. To contour a round face shape, apply dark contour color along the temples, sides of the forehead, below the cheekbones, and along the jawline. This technique helps add definition and slim down the roundness of the face.
Contouring is about enhancing your individual beauty, regardless of your face shape. Experiment with different techniques and find what works best for you. Don’t be afraid to embrace and celebrate your unique features!
The Seint Detail Brush is perfectly designed for contouring. Its broad, flat side is ideal for precise contouring, while the compact, rounded tip works excellently for blending highlighter.
For those needing a tool for smaller faces or detailed makeup application, the Detail Brush is a top choice. Its dual-ended design not only saves space in your beauty kit but also streamlines your makeup routine.
How to Apply Seint Contour Effectively
- Choosing the Right Shade: Select a cool-toned or ashy contour shade to mimic natural facial shadows. Avoid warm-toned contours or bronzers, as they can appear muddy.
- Application Technique: Apply the contour along the hollows of your cheeks, your jawline, the sides of your nose, and your forehead near the hairline. For precise application, use a makeup brush with a narrow, tapered tip.
- Blending for a Natural Look: Proper blending is crucial. Thoroughly blend your contour lines to avoid harsh edges and achieve a subtle shadow effect.
- Matte Finish: Stick to matte products for contouring. Shimmery or sparkly options can highlight areas you intend to recede.
