Contouring for Acne Prone Skin

Published on by

Want a slimmer nose? Defined cheekbones? Hide your double chin? Make that forehead appear smaller? Contouring can do all of that, and more! Now, if you suffer with Acne, you are probably thinking that this won’t work for you. But not to worry, Dermablend is the #1 recommended camouflage brand by Dermatologists across the world. We are non-comedogenic and non-acneic and fragrance free. Trust, you can have a beautiful contoured face without the breakouts or heavy foundation!

When it comes to foundation, no one does it better than Dermablend. Foundation IS what we do. This contouring technique features Intense Powder Camo and especially for our friends who suffer with breakouts!

-COVER: When choosing to different foundations, you want to aim to have your highlight shade 1-3 shades lighter than your traditional foundation and your contour shade 1-3 shades darker than your foundation.

-HIGHLIGHT: Apply the Intense Powder Camo foundation highlight shade to your nose and out to your forehead, like a palm tree. Then apply under the eyes in an upside down triangle (down on cheekbones). Apply to upper lip and center of chin. Lastly, apply a small highlight line in between your jaw and cheekbone. This provides more product when blending.

-CONTOUR: Make a duck face, apply the Intense Powder Camo foundation to contour under the cheekbone from the hairline, tracing across cheekbone until just before the nose. Then apply to the jawline (and if you want to hide that double chin, then apply under the jaw on the neck as well). Then draw down the sides of the nose to give a slimmed effect. Lastly, apply from temple to temple, tracing your hairline.

-BLENDING: Everyone has their own technique. When using powder, a powder brush works great for the highlight. Beauty Blender works best for the contour. Start by blending the highlight on the nose up to the contour. Blend all highlighted areas first to the contour. Then, smooth the contour into the highlight.

-SET: Lastly, ensure you have blended every area and set with Dermablend’s Setting Powder and voila! You have a beautifully, professional contoured face!
