Plastic Surgery Without Surgery Make Up Tutorial

February 26, 2014

Or... How to Lose 5 kg's With Make Up? LOL

People often say to me that my face has changed for the past year
And okay, the secret lies on my improvement skill on contouring and highlight!

I have found holy grail products to help me achieving perfect look as well. So might as well, share it on my blog? 

And here's the before and after surgery! Which is done by make up hehehe
In case anyone still has no idea how to do it, or is interested in this tutorial, please read this post!

Here I made you the diagram of where to put the highlighting and contouring
Which I will explain further

Yellow Line = Highlighting
Red Line = Contouring

Why I feel highlighting and contouring is crucial for me is because after I put on foundation on my entire face, the whole face color becomes even hence will look flat. There's no dimention at all!
If you only go for everyday look, then it might look fine. But as for me who likes taking picture, esp using flash, it's a big NO NO!

So by giving highlighting and contouring, your face will look more proportional and 3 Dimentional, giving 3 colors on your face!
Your normal skin tone, light skin on highlight area, and dark skin on contour area

Basically highlighting and contouring also have different shapes depends on your face shape
I show you the basic one using matte contouring powder and shimmery highlighting powder

See how flat my nose looks? T___T

Using a small blending brush, I brush it on the side of my nose in circular motion

And next with big angled brush for precise application, I contour the side of my face to give smaller face illusion and brush it on my jawline as well for V-Shape face

I don't contour the hallow of my cheekbones because it's so prominent already
[Sometimes I even put highlighter on it to make it look plumper, I swear T_T)

And using highlighter powder, I brush it along the area where the yellow lines are

The center of my face which includes forehead, nose bridge, and chin. It instantly makes my face more proportional
Also I like to swipe the highlighter in triangle shape on my cheek for that youthful and plump cheek!

I used to swipe it on my cheekbones but it's too strong for me now, so I changed it to my cheek instead
Anyway, you notice how my face glows healthily on the picture? That's why I like using shimmery highlighter on my face now!

Now, let's see the before and after again!!

Can tell my face looks much much slimmer and my face looks healthier and proportional?
Thanks to contouring, I look like I lost 5 kg's as well! WTF LOL

I love make up too much hahaha

Products used are The Balm Bahama Mama Contouring Powder and The Balm Mary Lou Luminizer
I swear these products are THE BEST in its kind!!

I am always in love with how their products are so subtle and matches my skin well!!
I know the price is a little bit expensive, but no other contouring and highlighter can beat these babies so far in my opinion!
I tried Sochii's Bahama Mama in Singapore once and instantly in love! Much better than my Diamond Nose!
Also the moment I swiped Mary Lou on my cheek, it has super awesome glow already! My face and eyes become sparkling as if in love LOL

I dont think I will ever use other contouring and highlighter for a while!
And they're finally available in Indonesia too huhuhu!! So happy!

Well, if you're doing this surgery without surgery make up look, do let me know as well!

And last but not least, for nose, it only works for front picture, not side picture HAHAHA LOL
Cannot make the nose bridge taller from side view

They should make some make up tools to fix this issue . . .

See you guys on my next post!  photo 21_zpsd46e6a3a.png photo 21_zpsd46e6a3a.png photo 21_zpsd46e6a3a.png

    lalu countring bisa dipakai sebagai shading gitu ya? masi ga ngerti beda beda nya

  31. PK002 ya klo gak salah

    sama aja kok

  32. A great tutorial. I'm always a bit shy about contouring, because I'm not experienced in doing it, but seeing your post makes me want to try it more often :D

  33. dulu jg cakep tel, makanya aku pake kata 'makin'.. klo dulu jelek, td aku blgnya "aihh jadi cakep ya tel' gt donk huahahhaa XD XD

  34. contouring can be done by foundation and such too but i think you can start by powder instead. the result is lighter and softer! :D much better for beginner

  35. tetep aku tak bisa mengalahkan kecantikan si cece rini. itu hidung ya tuhannn *3*
