Contour was one of the biggest trends of 2015 and I don’t think it’s going anywhere anytime soon! Until recently contour kits and products were only made by high end brands, now drugstore brands have jumped on the bandwagon and they’re amazing! I’ve tried both drugstore and high end and I do love the drugstore better.
My all time favourite is the Makeup Revolution Ultra Sculpt & Contour Kit in light (they do other shades). It’s showing a little more orange in my picture but it’s the perfect cool toned brown for contour. Ive used this every day since i purchased it (more than 6 months ago) and I’ve not even hit pan! It’s incredibly pigmented and blends like an absolute dream! This palette is only £3.50 and also includes a highlighter, which is gorgeous and a blush. I’ve personally never used the blush as it’s far too shimmery for me and I’m scared I’ll end up looking greasy rather than glowing!
Next up is the Freedom Makeup Pro Strobe Cream Palette. Freedom Makeup is the sister company Makeup Revolution so you know the quality is going to be just as great. I don’t actually know any other budget brand (besides Makeup Revolution ) to do a cream contour palette and honestly after trying this I don’t think I’ll ever need to try another. The creams again are the perfect cool toned shades, they have dark,medium and light contour and highlight shades so there’s a colour to suit everyone. This is only £10 and even comes with a free brush which is incredible quality. Freedom makeup is only in certain Superdrug stores but also available online.
Next is another Freedom Makeup product. This is the perfect dupe for the Clinique Contour Chubby Stick which is £19! This Pro Contour Shaped Stick comes with a tiny little less contour product but does come with a highlight as well. This little guy is only £5 and blends amazingly. Definitely recommend this over Clinique, especially to beginners starting out with cream contour.
Last up is my least favourite of the bunch but a very popular contour product nonetheless. The Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzing powder. Tanya Burr first introduced me to this product and was very pleased when I first tried but as Bronzing products have become bigger and better this just isn’t a staple for me now. It’s a little on the orange side with hints of shimmer but I’ve include it in this post as a lot of people still use this. The great thing about this is it does make a good bronzer too so it’s a 2 in 1 product and smells of chocolate! This is around £8 to buy from many places.
Thanks so much for reading,hope you guys enjoyed my first post!
