How to Contour Your Square Face | Sephora


Hey there, Jeffrey here from Sephora Pro and I’m here to share with you some quick and easy steps for contouring a
square-shaped face. If you’re not sure of your face shape, I would encourage you to check out the first video in our series to find out which shape is unique to you. Now Gana here has a square face shape. You’ll notice that her temples, cheekbones and jaw line form straight lines and are equidistant from the center
of the face. Our goal with this particular face shape is to round the perimeter of the face and soften those edges and also some of those angular features. At Sephora we have a lot of product options for you to choose from when it comes to
highlight and contour. We have creams, sticks, powders. Today I’m going to use creams. I’ve already prepped Gana’s skin with moisturizer and a lightweight foundation and we’re ready for the second step, which is highlighting. Starting with a cream product and
a small brush we’re gonna start in the center of the
forehead. Using the tip of the brush I’m going to pull straight up… and then bounce down to the chin to elongate the face. To connect the two we’ll draw a small line just down the center
of the nose. Another great best practice is to highlight under the eye. Starting right in the tear duct, we’re gonna pull down and out. Now Gana why don’t you give it a try. A great best practice as well, is to apply just to the top of the cheekbone here. It’s nice to apply a little bit of highlight just on the outer corners of the lip. Now that we’ved lengthened the face with
highlight, we’re ready to soften the perimeter in the face with contour When choosing a contour shade, it’s
important that you pick one that’s not too orange or one that has too much shimmer. That will give a really falsified effect on the face. What we’re looking for is a taupe based contour color. We’re gonna drag that product right along the jawline. Next, scoop right underneath the cheekbone. Using the tip of the brush I can scoot it right along the sides and down to the tip of the nose. Ready to try it? We’re gonna scoop underneath the cheekbone and go right along the side of the nose. So now we’re ready for the next step. We’re going to blend everything together
and soften those lines. We’re going to focus on keeping the points of intensity or the points of light by pressing the product into the skin. Now I like to
start by blending the light first because it’ll be a lot easier to
blend the dark into the light. Now you’re ready to blend, here you go. So now we’re going to blend the dark onto the light, blending in upward motion. You ready to try it? With the jawline, take it and blend it down on to the neck. Perfect. So we’re ready for our last step which is to finish this off. We’re going to use a little bit of a powder to set the cream contour products we used. That’s going to ensure that it’s really durable and it lasts all day. Starting at the top of the cheekbone, we’re gonna roll our brush down onto the face and pat through the rest. Now Gana are you ready to set it? So now that you finished the look you can add a little bit more warmth
with blush and bronzer, but there you have it – contouring for square shaped face.
