Powder vs. Cream contour
Contouring will be the death of me: I have yet to master the fabulous art, but I know the basics. I have ‘Shade and Light’ Face Contour Palette and the Anastasia Beverly Hills Pro Series Contour Cream Kit Light. I have tried both individually and both together, but because of my skin I can’t have too much on without it look atrocious. Also, a tip: don’t over-do it – what looks good for a glam selfie doesn’t necessarily look great as a day look.
I mostly use Anastasia Beverly Hills Pro Series Contour Cream Kit Light favouring four of the six colours. As with most things in life, sometimes it seems to glide on and blends well but other times it looks like the result of a mud fight – I’ve no idea why this happens, I use the same foundation, the same brushes, but I struggle getting a consistent good result – and I know it’s user error, not the product! But as they say, practice makes perfect.
The ‘Shade and Light’ Face Contour Palette I use 2 out of 6 and sometimes just the one. However, this product I do struggle with – I love Kat Von D and I want to like her products but I am not happy with this set: The colours aren’t great and the three paler colours look so caked on, even when I apply very sparingly, there is something about this product that just doesn’t suit me.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Pro Series Contour Cream Kit Light-£39.00
