When you don’t have $10,000 to pay for a new set of boobs, resort to this.
By now, you had to have heard of the contouring trend, whether you’re a makeup wizard or not. It’s simply amazing how professionals, or the average person alike, can pretty much help mold someone in an effort to give them something they necessarily don’t naturally have, with just a few makeup tools.
We have hair contouring which enhances your facial features and we have various forms of makeup contouring to help you look however you want without going under the knife. And now, we also have boob contouring which allows you to show off a set of knockers you don’t really have either.
Here’s how to give the illusion that you grew a set of boobs overnight:
Step 1: Make sure you have all the right tools.
By tools we mean makeup necessities. To successfully contour your boobs, you’ll need a skin-toned palette of cream makeup, translucent pressed powder, makeup sponges, one big blush brush (or one equivalent in size) and one small, thinner brush (or one equivalent in size).
Step 2: Start contouring.
With your smaller brush, apply a shade of makeup to your breast that is about two shades darker than your skin tone. Starting at the bottom of your cleavage, work your way up. Keep going until you’ve traced about 3/4 of your breast, leaving a little bit of space, which you will fill in during Step 5.
Step 3: Repeat step 2; blend.
Contour your other boob. Once they’re both done, blend the hard line you’ve just formed on each. Don’t blend it in too much because you still want to see the lines, which should look like the natural curve of your boob.
Step 4: Create a shadow.
Using the same brush, dip it into a color that’s one tone darker than the last two you just combined for Step 2-3. Fill in the space between your real breast and the line that you just traced by creating a shadow at the end of your cleavage where the cups of your bra would meet.
Step 5: Start shading.
Using a makeup sponge, shade, or blend, all areas for an au-naturale look.
Step 6: Finishing touches.
Using the bigger of the two brushes, apply the translucent powder to your newfound cleavage and voila! You have yourself a new set of boobs at the expense of some makeup.
