Kardashian Makeup Tips — Expert Advice From Rob Scheppy
Rob Scheppy, who works with the Kardashian / Jenner family, offered his expert tips on how to contour!
“First: Assess the face, and make sure the skin is clean and exfoliated.
The first step in contouring is creating a flawless base. We do that with the Tweezerman Contour Kit. I actually love this kit set because it gives me everything I need for the perfect contour, and my celeb clients love it too because it’s travel friendly and easy to use when they are on the go.
I then take my sponge, which is great for blending, around the hairline and jawline.
I take my Tweezerman Mini Contour Foundation Brush with one shade darker than her own skin to create contours under the jaw bone to sculpt the jawline.
I take that same brush and apply powder in the swallows of her cheeks for more definition. The unique angle of the brush head allows for seamless blending along the angles of the face, making it a great choice for blending out contour lines.
I then take the Tweezerman Pointed Concealer Brush, which perfect for adding a little luminosity, which helps to refine the nose and bring out the eyes.”
