One of the reasons why I love makeup is because it’s basically a quick magic trick when used the right way (we have all seen magic tricks go real bad). Contouring and highlighting is amazing because it can give your face a different shape by sharpening and/or popping out different areas of your face like your cheekbones and nose. Sine I use contouring and highlighting not only on myself, but for models and talent on shoots, I was excited to see that Anastasia Beverly Hills has a contouring kit that is great to bring on set, or use at home for personal use.

How to Use
Thoughts. Opinions. Rating
First off…oh.my.gosh…will my tired eyes ever go away? Anyways, a few months back I did a blog post series about how to contour and highlight; having the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Palette would make it 1,000 times more easy. I love when anything is in just one place and I don’t have to use 200 different palettes to get the look I want. I really like the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit for that very reason, it’s compact, has 6 different shades and the colors are suitable for most skin tones. I say most because I think that someone with white, super pale skin may have a problem with the darker shades being too dark, and for much darker skin tones…this could really be far to light. I have more of a medium skin tone (although currently as white as the Twighlight Vampires), so it was great for me.
