My contouring go-to products

Read more on my contouring go to products

I'm actually one of those people who contours in one way or another, every morning.. yep. I obviously have too much time on my hands, or I get up too early to do this. But otherwise I look like a giant moon face and won't leave the house, so yeah. I have a few products that I will always gravitate towards when contouring, and these are the four I need for different looks.

Some of these are for when I have more time, and others are a quick swipe that will last all day. Obviously having oily skin my makeup doesn't last all that long, especially powder products. So if I'm out all day I need something long lasting.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit

I've reviewed the Anastasia Beverly Hills contour kit before, so I won't delve too much into detail about it (review here). I love this kit though, out of anything I've tried this is my all time favourite. There is so many colours to play with, so if I'm tan I can use the darker shades and if I'm pale like I normally am I can use the lighter shades. I mostly mix between the first two shades as they're the lightest for my skintone and blend perfectly. The banana shade is perfect for under my eyes too. I mostly use this for nights out or special occasions, it doesn't last all that long on me but it can survive a night out!

Hourglass Ambient Lighting palette

I wrote about the Ambient Lighting Palette over a year ago now (review here) but I'm still loving it. A little goes a long way with this palette, so it has lasted me forever. I use it very rarely though, it creates an amazing dewy glow which is perfect for summer. So it will get some extra use again this summer. The first shade is an all over powder, second is a highlight and third is the contour shade. It's a really warm shade, so you only need a little of it. But it actually lasts ages on your face and looks amazing. 

Nars Steven Klein palette

I only recently wrote about the Nars Steven Klein palette, but I've had it for ages so I know how much I love it. There is the two contour shades and the Laguna bronzer. To be honest I gravitate towards the Laguna bronzer more than the contour shades, just cause it's easier to blend under my cheekbones than the contour shades on a lazy day. Though the two contour duo are amazing, the light powder brightens under my eyes perfectly. Laguna is every day shade though. 

Revolution The One Blush Stick

I love this, I've had it for donkeys but it's the perfect dupe for the Nars multiple. This is a product I either use to up my contour game for a night out or just something simple that will last all day. I apply this using my Real Techniques expect face brush, the rounded bristles apply this perfectly. This lasts a whole day at work in the warm office conditions and even a boiling hot day outside. I looove it! 

So there it is, there is my ultimate contouring go-to's. I do have heaps of other contouring products I break out occasionally but these are definitely my most used and loved. They look amazing with a bit of The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer as a highlight too (nothing has beat that highlight for me, though my Becca one is nearly on par). 

What are your go-to contour bits?
