5 Contour & Highlight Palettes For That Perfectly Chiseled Face!
It’s party season, people! Time to get snatched. Look perfect in wedding photos, at Christmas parties, and office parties… basically, everywhere.
Contouring and highlighting doesn’t have to be so hard. Bring out your best features with a palette that meets all your contour and highlight needs. Powder, cream, or both… pick a palette that best suits you.
For beginners, it may be easier to work with powders, but that isn’t necessarily a rule of thumb. So, first things first, watch this video on basic contouring to flaunt a more chiseled version of your beautiful face!
So, now that Anchal MUA has given us the lowdown on both powders and cream contour kits, let’s look at some products, shall we?
1. NYX Professional
The NYX cream contour palettes are easy to work with and can be built up for an intense contour. The cream blends out seamlessly, when applied in the right areas. Blend it with a multi-purpose brush or beauty blender for a magical finish. It comes with two contour shades and one highlight shade. The two contour shades can be layered, one on top of the other, but if you’re still figuring things out or like to keep it simple, then opt for the shade that best suits you.
2. Freedom Professional
It’s easy with the Freedom Pro Contour Palette that comes with one highlight powder and one contour powder. Set your concealer or foundation with the highlight powder under your eyes, the bridge of your nose, the center of your forehead, and chin. Blend the contour powder into the hollows of your cheekbones, the sides of your nose, your hairline, and your jawline.
Here’s another powder palette that’s easy to use. Plus, it comes with a blush-toned colour! Your blush comes directly between your contour and your highlight. Isn’t that convenient? This also comes with a pro brush that’s great for contouring and highlighting.
4. L’Oréal Paris
L’Oréal’s pallette is a dream for beginners, and here’s why. It’ll fit right into your purse, so one product and you’re sorted. Plus, it comes with a brush applicator and a how-to guide on the box. So in case you’re confused, all you’ve got to do is refer to the awesome packaging.
Slim and enhance your features with PAC’s pro palette. Now, as the name suggests, opt for this if you’re comfortable with contouring. The palette features two brightening shades and four bronzers. Yellow acts as a great highlighting and correcting colour for purple-tinged under eyes. You can even mix the two highlighting colours to create the perfect highlighting concealer. Basically, if you know how to use this, it can be super versatile!
