Contouring used to be something only drag queens and celebrities did but, thanks to Kim Kardashian, it鈥檚 everywhere. We鈥檝e seen the pushback against contouring in the form of non-touring and also the evolution of contouring to other parts of your body. While contouring my feet isn鈥檛 something I have any interest or need for 鈥 because why? 鈥 body contouring is something I鈥檓 totally down to try.

You see, I am the president, founder and cardholding member of the Itty Bitty Titty Committee. While breasts were being handed out, I was over-sleeping and got into the line when all of the good stuff was gone. While I鈥檓 totally cool with what I have, there are times when a deep V-cut shirt or dress would look a lot better with a little more on the top shelf鈥 or at least the illusion ;)

And this is where body contouring comes in pretty handy. The shade and highlight game is, apparently, perfect for giving your barely-a-B-cup a boost without scalpels and anesthesia.

STEP 1: APPLY YOUR DARKER SHADE AND BLEND

First, smoosh your boobs and trace the arc with your darker shade 鈥 I used COVER FX Custom Cover Drops ($44) 鈥 and blend out the lines.

STEP 2: APPLY YOUR LIGHTER SHADE ABOVE AND BLEND

I used Xtreme Lashes Skin Renewing Concealer ($36) to create a new arc above the darker one, and then blended it.

STEP 3: APPLY YOUR LIGHTER SHADE BELOW聽AND BLEND

The same as before, except THIS line went UNDER the dark one.

STEP 4: HIGHLIGHT

Apply highlighter on top of and below your lighter shade. I used ColourPop Super Shock Cheek highlighter ($8), but you can use whatever you have handy.

STEP 5: SET

Lastly, use a setting powder to make sure your new cleavage doesn鈥檛 budge. I used Inglot Mattifying Loose Powder ($16).

THE VERDICT

Did contouring my boobs work, you ask? I would say so. While I didn鈥檛 get the D-cup I was hoping for, I definitely noticed the appearance of a bit more fullness post-contouring. While boob contouring seems to do the exact same job that a good push-up bra does, I would definitely try this trick again 鈥 this time with a more aggressive contour 鈥 when I wear a top or dress that doesn鈥檛 allow for a bra.
