How NOT To Contour For Your Special Occasion

Anyone who has sat in my chair and uttered the word “contour” knows how I feel about it. If you’re not careful, that carved out cheekbone turns into a distracting, “what was she thinking” line unless you are at just the right angle and/or in a specific light.

Here’s a good case in point: Michelle Visage, obviously painted and contoured for the purpose of shooting this video.  However, due to the conversational nature of this piece, she is moving her head and chatting, much like any normal person does when they go out. Notice how in some shots she has a carefully sculpted cheek, while in others she has a bronze streak on her face?  The next time you want (or want your artist ) to do the Instagram Contour to do anything other than be in a fixed set of positions, remember this and Just Say No™
