Recently I got my hands on the famous Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit! I've been loving it so much so I had to do a quick review and show you the swatches.
I think this kit is perfect for beginners or those who love to contour. It has everything you need! Two lighter shades for that perfect highlight under your eyes and also a nice shimmery neutral colour for the highest points of your face. The three contour shades are so perfect, I used to use Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting powder in Medium, but I kind of like these shades a lot more! My favourite is Fawn and Java, the warmer tone (Havana) is also nice for those of you that have a more yellow skin tone. I just like to mix them all and I achieve a great result. I really love the fact that they blend very well and they look natural, without looking muddy or blotchy.
Best thing about this palette is the fact that you can take out the shades, refill them, or create your own palette with your desired colours. So it's very versatile and there is something for everyone.
Contouring your face is truly the best invention ever made! I remember when I only used foundation on my face, no bronzer, no highlight, no contour. I looked more chubby and with no real definition. I feel like when you do a full face of makeup or even very natural one, contour is super important, it defines your features and it just makes you look more attractive, slimmer and kind of like you've just had a plastic surgery!! That's what people like to say about me! ;)
For my contour I only use one brush and that is Nars ITA brush - the best contour brush I have ever used and so easy to get that perfect line. I recommend it to everyone!
Thanks for checking.
