Contouring: You’re Doing It All Wrong

Ok guys, we know the internet is already flooded with contouring how-to’s and Youtube clips, but hear us out…

We’re not in the business of doubling-up and adding to the masses for the sake of some ‘Kardashian’ ‘contouring’ SEO, but we recently learned that we’ve been doing it all wrong, and you probably are too.

The Kardashian way is not the only way, people, and to save the world one tangerine, shimmering cake face at a time, we decided we needed to pass-on these words of wisdom.

A couple of weeks back we were lucky enough to hang out with Rose-Marie Smith – a.k.a. the brains behind organic makeup range R.M.S. (Phoebe Tonkin and Lara Bingle are fans), and she taught us a thing or two about contouring. When you’ve worked for the likes of French Vogue, Mario Sorrenti, Hedi Slimane and Terry Richardson (to name-drop a few), you can officially say you know your shit.

We were under the impression that a razor-sharp set of cheekbones involves a heavy hand and a lot of bronzer, but RMS proved us wrong. Watching this woman in action was impressive – like a magic trick where something appears out of nothing.

The good news is, her method is the best we’ve ever tried, and the easiest. All you need is one product, because the secret is in the placement.

Watch, and learn kids.
