Hello Makeup Geeks,
I will be bringing you to a journey of how to Contour the easiest way possible!
I recently discovered a new Contouring product from…of course Sephora. This easy to use beauty product is the Smashbox Step by Step Contour Kit and it is a contouring palette. In the pan your get 3 Contouring shades that I personally find suitable for most skin colours. The darkest shade is meant to sculpt the hollows of your cheeks and I would recommend applying this products with an angled brush. The second darkest shade is a bronzer dedicated to shape your bone structure. You can apply it with the same brush on your temple and along your jaw line. Last but not least, you have the lightest colour from the palette that is called the highlighter. This colour has to be applied on the top of your cheekbones for a more radiant and defined look.
In the pan you will also find step-by-step instructions on how to best use the product which I find very helpful for beginners. The palette also comes with a contouring brush which I find it great for sculpting. It has soft bristles and a really sharp edge so it can really get he hollow of your cheeks. However, I find it too small for bronzing and too big for highlighting. It will do the work when you are travelling and you cannot bring a set of brushes with you but I prefer using my favourite brushes when applying this product.
This palette should be a must in your makeup kit even if you are not a makeup artist. It is easy to use and it provides a buildable coverage. I had this product for about a month now and I find myself reaching for it all the time for both my personal use and my clients. The amount of product is 0.4oz which is a pretty decent size. The price is C$52 and it’s worth every penny considering the fact that this is a high end product which you can use every day on every occasion. You will probably have to spend more money if you would decide to buy each product separately.
The product has the perfect shape and size for travelling and even have it in your purse every day for touch ups.
