How to look skinny - simple makeup tutorial to make your face appear slimmer.

I’m straying from my traditional home, recipe and entertaining posts today because I was too excited to share this makeup trick. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Some people don’t just have good genes, they have good friends. The night after moving into our new home, a couple of lifelong friends, Amanda & Tori, invited me to the relaunch of Amanda Macia Makeup. Amanda has always been my go to girl for makeup tips {doesn’t everyone have a friend like that?}. Most often, I ask her for tips to make my face look slimmer. Having a round face has never been an asset I’ve embraced. I’ve been working diligently to slim down, but I can use all of the help I can get. Little tricks like this grant me a free pass for that extra glass of wine or the occasional piece of pie. Any time I can look like I’ve lost 5 pounds without an ounce of diet or exercise, I’m in! Naturally, I took notice to her tutorial & asked Amanda if she would share these tips & tricks with you, too! Today, Amanda & I are sharing a step-by-step tutorial how to look skinny just by applying makeup!

I haven’t shared any beauty content in a few years – I am not an expert, but I appreciate learning from others & enjoy finding ways to highlight my strengths & downplay my not-so-favorite features. If you enjoy this post, please comment below & let me know! Of course I’ll continue to post plenty of effortless entertaining ideas, recipes & home projects as well.

What you’ll need:

Primer {I’ve been using Smashbox for years}

Foundation

Concealer

Bronzer/Sculpting Powder

Highlighter {I swear by Boots Highlighter}

Powder

Blush

  1. Prime. To prep and prepare your skin, apply a primer with your fingers all over the face, starting from the center of the face working outwards.
  1. Foundation. Apply foundation to even out your complexion.  Be sure to blend evenly into the ears, jawline, neck and hairline.
  1. Conceal. Apply concealer under the eyes, around the nostrils and on any imperfections.
  1. Contour. Contour with a color one or two shades deeper than your base tone. Begin application at the hairline {at the middle of the ear} and blend slightly towards the mouth to sculpt the cheek and blend it upwards to emphasize the cheekbone.  Focus on your hairline, jawline and neck.Contour each side of your nose to create a shadow effect, making your nose look more defined.

  1. Highlight Cheekbones. 
Highlight with a color one or two shades brighter than your face. Apply highlights on top of your cheekbones, under your cheekbones, middle of your forehead and bit on the bridge of your nose.

  1. Blend. This step is important, as you don’t want obvious lines across your face where one ends and the other begins. Blend with a beauty sponge until the lines are invisible.
  1. Set with powder. Give your complexion a soft matte finish by applying powder, starting at the center of the face, working outwards using sweeping movements.

  1. Sweep on Blush. Apply blush to the apples of your cheeks and blend back toward the temples. This area should be right above the bronzer application to ensure a seamless blend.
