Choosing the Best Contouring Kit
Posted on March 01 2016
Contouring has become a way of life for many celebrities and makeup artists the world over. You've seen this style on everyone from your favorite Instagram bloggers to the Kardashians - now it's time for you to try!
Just one problem...where do you begin? There are Powder contouring kits -VS- cream, highlighters, and so much more that it can be overwhelming. Thankfully, contouring isn't nearly as difficult as many people think it is. All you need is the correct tools!Here are a few tips to help you choose the best contouring kit for you!
- First, ask yourself about coverage. Do you want your contour to be more intense or light? Some women choose to add a base of foundation before creating a contour, but for a lighter look you can always choose to go more barefaced! Both powder and cream kits work well on either. Powder is recommended for lighter looks because color can be built up and re-applied as necessary.
- The most important thing to consider when choosing any beauty product for your face is your skin type. Are you oily, prone to dryness, or more of a combination? Cream kits tend to work best on those prone to dry-combination skin types, as it helps to maintain that oh-so-enviable dewy skin look! On the other hand, if you have a more oily complexion, powder might be the best option to keep your look matte.
- The best thing about contouring is that you can mix and match your products! You can absolutely use a powder contour kit on top of a creamier foundation, no problem. It's all about finding what works best for you!
We hope that you find the best option to help you feel fierce and fabulous this spring!
