Even though we can’t post pics from them here the app You MakeUp can do the contouring for you and you can use that pic for a reference. Contouring is a basic part of stage makeup. It’s pricey but Richard Corson’s book is the best on the topic.

eBay has earlier editions starting at $6.20

The main differences between street and stage makeup is materials and amount. You do bolder makeup on stage because of the strong lighting.

Hugs & kisses,

Hello Joanne, contouring can be an advanced process for a beginner. My advice is gain enough courage to seek out a cosmetologist or beautician and have them do it or take lessons from them. If you feel uncomfortable with strangers; maybe you can ask a female relative or friend for assistance.

My first public outing with make-up in 2019; I went to an Ulta Beauty store and had a make-up lady do a full make-up application on me. I was quite pleased with the results.

I would be happy to work with you on contouring! I am a Beauty Consultant with 40 years in the beauty business and love helping others look and feel more beautiful! Contouring is best applied with a light hand and a clear idea of where to apply which is based on your face shape. I even do virtual appointments so your location isn't an issue. Be-YOU-tiful!

I went looking for You Makeup on the Android Store. It is not there.

It is available as an APK file, though. Do you know if it is still being developed?
