CGS Beauty Picks: Contour Kits
Laura Mercier Flawless Contouring Palette
Professional make-up artist Laura Mercier introduces a blendable-cream formula in her Flawless Contouring Palette, making it easier to blend in than your traditional powder. The palette consists of a main contour color, two additional contour colors in medium and dark, a brightening highlighter and a smoothing highlighter. This palette is perfect for enhancing, sculpting, and adding shadow to the face.
Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette
The Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette is unlike other formulas in that it contains a selection of matte shades to allow the wearer to capture shadow and light hues. The palette contains 3 contour shades including taupe, soft brown and deep brown, as well as 3 highlight shades including a pinkish-nude, yellow beige, and soft peach. The expert sketch artist created this palette to allow for a sculpted, shaped and slenderized look.
Marc Jacobs Beauty #instamarc Light Filtering Contour Powder
If ease is your goal, then the Marc Jacobs #instamarc Contour Powder is the way to go. The powder contains a contour brown and highlight pink, and comes in 3 different color sets to suit the wearer’s needs. From light bronze to deep bronze, the powder is designed for every skin shade. The powder contains jet-milled pigments for a smooth, velvety texture, as well as vitamins A, C, and E to keep the skin radiant while in use.
Tarte Park Ave Princess Contour Palette Volume II
What makes the Tarte Park Ave Princess Contour Palette so great is the fact that it comes with waterproof, bronzing contour color.
