After watching various make up tutorials on YouTube, i kept hearing the same word/phrase being uttered 'i'm going to CONTOUR now using....' I quickly discovered that contouring was a method using a (usually) matte bronzer to add structure to the face. Contouring is usually used in the hollows of your cheeks, to find these pull the famous fish-face! On your temples and under your jawline.
The contour powder which i use is the widely spoken about 'Sleek Contour Kit', it does exactly what it says on the tin!
In the compact you get a contour colour (2/3) which is a mid brown matte shade and a simply beautiful highlight shade (1/3) and a little mirror, which could come in useful if you are on your travels!
The matte brown contour is wonderful, it is now part of my everyday make up routine. I apply it with a slightly tapered powder brush. The contour is pigmented, blends easily and doesn't leave you with an orange stripe down your face, which is always a plus! ;)
Alongside the contour colour is a highlight shade. Admittedly, i don't use the highlight as much as the contour, simply because it is VERY pigmented and if you wear it in the daytime you would need to apply it very lightly. The highlight is quite apt for when you are hitting the town for a night out though, it adds a dramatic highlight when applied along the top of your cheekbones.
The Sleek Contour Kit is available in three shades (Light, Medium and Dark. I chose Light) and is available from Superdrug and the Sleek website for a bargain price of £6.50!
Have you tried the Sleek Contour Kit before, or do you use a different product to contour with?
