I’m not sure when the whole contour craze began but I’m sure I’m not the only one who has a lot to thank it for!
Somehow a little bit of make up can fool people into thinking even the roundest face has perfectly chiseled cheekbones, a defined jaw line and even a different shaped nose in some cases 😮
Now… there are hundreds of contour kits floating around the high street these days but how do you know which one is for you?
One of the most sought after contour kits is probably the Anastasia Beverly Hills kit which, at a pricey £39, comes in either a powder or cream version.
However, don’t be fooled into thinking that just because it’s so expensive and high end it’s the best out there as there are soooooo many dupes you can test before going for the priciest option! 🙂
I’ve tried a lot of different contour kits from different brands but the one I’m going to talk about in this post is my newest and possibly cheapest… The Make Up Revolution Ultra Contour Kit.
Make Up Revolution is one of my favourite high street brands at the moment, their products are such good quality at some of the lowest prices you can imagine!
Before buying the contour kit I had only used their eye shadow palettes, which, by the way, are a close favourite to my Naked 1 palette and probably a preference over my Naked 3! But I’ll save that for another post!
The Ultra Contour Kit is a powder contour and has a very attractive price tag of just £8. I must admit, I was a little skeptical of how well the contour kit would actually… contour. If you know what I mean.
But I was absolutely over the moon and I fell in love with this product! It comes with three
contour shades which can also be used for bronzing, a banana powder (my FAVE part of the kit which I’ve already ran out of!) two peachy/pinky tones and two highlighters. One of which is very shimmery and the other has more a pink sheen, perfect for going over your blush!
The packaging is fabulous for travel with a huge mirror making it perfect for on the go make up!
The only disadvantage to the kit is that as far as I am aware there is only one set of shades available, therefore it may be a little light for people with much darker skin.
I will definitely be re-purchasing this contour kit, and I would recommend it to anyone whether you’re after a light, natural contour look or a super defined one!
Let me know in the comments if you’ve tried this kit or if you have any high street faves I should try!
