While I’ve heard rumors that contouring is sooooo out for 2016, I still find the technique intriguing and totally appropriate for the right situation so I recently picked up Ulta’s Contour Kit.
The kit includes two shimmery highlighters, four matte contour shades and a pull-out contouring guide to help you achieve the look you want. My favorite thing about this palette is that it has everything you need in one slim package.
The two highlighters included in this palette are very nice for an everyday look. Radiance Highlighter (1) has a pink undertone while Lustre Highlighter (2) is a golden highlighter. Worn alone or in tandem they’re lovely as a cheek, brow bone, nose, or Cupid’s bow highlight.
Warmth Bronzer (3) is the lightest contour shade. It’s great as a lighter allover bronzer and has a bit of an ashy tone so it could be used to contour on lighter skin tones.
Golden Bronzer (4) is my favorite shade of the bunch to contour with. Using a light hand, it’s perfect to carve out your cheeks and enhance any look. It’s fairly dark so start out slowly.
Another favorite shade of mine in this palette is Bombshell Bronzer (5). It’s the most versatile shade in the kit as it can be used as an allover bronzer or placed strategically as a contour.
The shade Goddess Bronzer (6) is the darkest shade included in this palette. I probably won’t use it much because it is so dark but it would make a great transition shade for a sultry smoky eye.
All in all, I think this contour kit is worth checking out. The shades are suitable for many skin tones and can be used in a variety of ways.
If you’re new to the world of contouring and want an affordable contour kit, I definitely recommend giving this one a try!
