When it comes to contouring I’ll admit my skills are pretty much average. I mean, I can brush a little underneath my cheekbones and dab a little on my forehead, but it’s nowhere near Kim Kardashian standards. Since I’m such a novice at chiselling my features I found myself a little lost and confused when it was time to use my Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit.
Since I got back I must have reached for this palette a dozen times and every single time I’ve just stared at the gorgeous colours, and then stored it away in my beauty draw. I don’t know why it took me so long to try it out maybe six shades were just too much for me to handle, as my usual go-to contour product is my MAC bronzer, which is just one shade.
After four long months I FINALLY gave it a go. Before I dive straight in I just have to say how much I love this packaging. It’s simplistic, luxurious and totally glamorous.
Since Anastasia Beverly Hills is an expert in the field of precision, sculpting, and defining, it didn’t surprise me that the shades are highly pigmented. I’ve only used two powders so far; the middle brown colour and the glittery highlighter shade.
You only need the smallest amount on your brush, as a little goes a long way. To ensure I didn’t over do it, I took the tiniest amount of powder and kept applying more until I was happy. As Jeffree Star would say “it melts like butter” and it really does. It blended into my skin effortlessly and looked very natural compared to my bronzer, which can sometimes look a little harsh.
I’m so glad I finally plucked up the courage to test this palette because I absolutely loved the results. My cheekbones were highlighted, my forehead appeared smaller and more importantly, my nose looked slimmer.
I haven’t tried any of the other shades yet, however you never know, this time in a few months I could be an expert at chiselling my entire face – here’s hoping!
Has anyone used this palette before, what are your thoughts? Do you have any tips or advice you could share with me?
