When it comes to beauty, there are a few things every girl needs to know ­– how to choose the right foundation; how to achieve the ultimate brow and most recently, how to contour.

So, what is contouring? 

Favoured by the Kardashians, contouring is the latest trend in makeup application used to give shape to the face and enhance the facial structure.

At Lulu and Lipstick, we’ve just received a shipment of the Anastasia Beverly Hill Contour Kits, and man oh man do we love them! But in case you haven’t mastered this new technique, we’ve developed a step-by-step rundown that will have you contouring like a pro in no time!

What you’ll need:

Step 1 (foundation): Start by covering your face in a light coat of your normal foundation (but don’t add any concealer or bronzer at this stage).

Step 2 (conceal): Add concealer under your eyes and blend (by dabbing, not wiping) from your nose up to the side of your eyes (almost to your temple) – the Lulu and Lipstick concealer brush is great for this!

Step 4 (blend): Using the Lulu and Lipstick blush brush, blend the contour lines in to help things look more natural.

Viola, you’re done! And we bet you look more like a Kardashian than ever before.
