Contouring. Is it getting old since strobing is the new hype?
I guess it is, yet I still love to contour when I’m putting a full face on now and then. I have to admit that what I’m about to review has been in my make up stash for quite a few months now. Yet I’d still like to share with you the benefits of contouring with cream pencils.
So I went to Douglas a few months ago and saw that Smashbox has this contour kit with three pencils: a highlighter, a bronzer and a contour pencil. Apply the hightlighting pencil on your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose and on your brow bone. Below the highlighter you should apply the bronzing pencil and then apply your contour.
Get a damp Beautyblender and dab the product on your skin. Don’t forget to blend ladies! Just so that it all smoothes out nicely and there are no stripes on your face.
I’ve swatched the pencils so you can get an impression of the colors.
What I love about the pencils is that you can’t get too much product on your face like that sometimes happens when you’re using powder. With the powdery formula I tend to use too much product. Then there’s contour all over my face. Especially on the places I don’t want it to be!
You can order the Smashbox kit here.
I’d say, just give it a try and maybe this is the solution when you’re coping with the same problem as I do when using powdered contour.
Have a great day my loves!
