Hi, I'm Christine. I'm a makeup artist, and I'm going to show you how to use bronzer to contour an oval face. It's very easy to do. What you'll need are a bronzer and a contour brush. It has an angle. the first step is going to be to take your brush and dip it into your bronzer and apply it to the face. Definitely tap off the excess or if it's your brush you can blow on it and we're going to sweep it upwards in this part of the cheek and you can make a fish face to see it. So, we're going to apply it right in there and you can make this as much or as little as you'd like. We're going to kind of do a medium. So, we want to really etch out that cheekbone. The next step after you've carved out your cheekbones is going to be up here in the temples. So, we want to slim the sides of the forehead and so we just take the bronzer, tap out the excess and we're going to go in on the sides just to create a shadow and it's best when doing this if your bronzer doesn't really have a lot of shimmer, a matte one will be better and you can go a little bit, trace a little bit along your whole hair line and then your last step will be to carve out the jaw line. So we'll take more bronzer and we want to really carve out the jaw line so go underneath the chin here, right underneath on both sides. Again, we're just creating that shadow and there you go. That is how you can use bronzer to contour an oval face, very easy to do. You can do it as dark or as light as you want to, dramatic or not. Have fun with it, try it out. Thank you for watching. I'm Christine, bye.
