Still contouring in summer has its obvious challenges and it has already often received flak for the use of thick layers of makeup. The technique can also get too overwhelming for some. But, really contouring is all about choice – and one can go from as simple to as complicated according to one’s wishes. However, for contouring in summer the best way is to go minimal and keep a natural look. Here are a few tricks to summer contouring –

1. Apply bronzer – Start off by using a bronzer few shades darker than your skin tone and make contours according the look you are going for. Tip – Use a matte bronzer here!

2. Choose the Right Blush – Once you’re done contouring with the bronzer, the next step is to blend with a blush. For summers the subtle illuminating blushes work wonder in adding the perfect bit of glow.

3. Just the Right Amount of Highlighter – Contouring is almost incomplete without highlighting but it can be as easy to go overboard. Hold back on excess highlighting and only use it to add that perfect subtle shimmer over your contours.

4. Using Powder – Using powder to contour can be a very good idea for summers too.
