Every time I receive an email from one of the makeup brands I follow, it has informed me that February is all about contouring. I mean, how it could it not be. It is one of those makeup trends that seems to be getting bigger and bigger by the day. If you don’t know how, there are hundreds of step by step guides to create the perfect contoured face.
Any brand that you love probably has a contour palette already out or they are in the works of making one. You don’t even need a palette to do so, you can create your own with the products you already have. I am by no means an expert when it comes to this, as I am still trying to perfect it myself, but it honestly is so easy once you get the hang of it.
In my makeup routine, I use my E.L.F. Contouring Blush & Bronzing duo. I have talked about this inexpensive duo before and I absolutely love it. I decided to use something inexpensive to start, as I didn’t want to splurge on a palette, especially if this didn’t work for me. However, now that contouring is becoming second nature to me, there are a few palettes that I would love to get my hands on.
1. NYX Highlight & Contour Pro Palette–This is brand new, but as soon as I saw that it was coming out, I knew that I had to try this. Currently, I can’t find it Canada, but once I find it, you will definitely see a review.
2. Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit–Self explanatory LOL. I have wanted this for such a long time.
3. Make Up For Ever Sculpting Kit–Again, self-explanatory.
4. Tarte: The Sculptor contouring face– I have Sonia Kashuk’s sculpting stick and I absolutely love it. It was an inexpensive buy compared to Tarte’s. However, I still want to buy this and see how it compares to Sonia’s.
Obviously, the last 3 are used most often within the makeup world, so there is no surprise there when it comes to my wish list. I love this trend and I think it is just going to get bigger as the year goes on. There is nothing better than using makeup to make your face look slimmer and highlight your gorgeous face.
