Facial contouring-do you really have to do it?

The big craze in makeup now is contouring – Kim Kardashian does it, Cheryl Cole does it – these women look amazing, so should you all be doing it?

Contouring is simply shading – adding shade to create the illusion of contours, then adding light to emphasise these contours.

Many Trans ladies have been told that contouring will change their faces and feminise them – I don’t totally agree. Contouring can have the adverse effect of sharpening the bone structure, making the face appear hard and bony, and more masculine.

I prefer to add soft feminising colours and light, to lift the complexion and soften the overall appearance of the face. I will shade the contour of the jaw-bone, and add a little to the cheeks, but that is about it.

So here’s my step-by-step guide to making up your face - and it shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes to do either.
