2 Fab New Contour Kits To Try

She came, she saw, she contoured.

We’ll never tire of sharing this quote, straight from the mouth of fellow IMAGE.ie scribe, Holly O’Neill. Gone are the days when one bronzer or one highlighter would suffice; now we require whole kits. After all, how can you expect to contour, highlight, sculpt, shade and shape without at least a six-piece palette? A nose-slimming here, a cheekbone-enhancing here, it’s an art in itself. If you’re a follower of some of the best YouTube beauty vloggers, you’ll be familiar with the cult contour kit from Anastasia Beverley Hills of which that these gals can’t get enough. Well, sadly, you can’t buy it in an Irish store; you have to order it online and what with sterling prices and shipping costs, it’s a dent that your wallet you could certainly do without in January. Answering our prayers, along comes Make Up For Ever and Irish brand Fuschia with their own offerings, sure to make your sculpting dreams come true.

First up, the Make Up For Ever Pro-Sculpting Palette 4 in 1 that’s proved so popular so far, it’s literally flying off the shelves and almost impossible to get your hands on (they’re due another stock refill soon so keep your peepers peeled on makeupforever.ie). Coming in four creamy shades to suit the full spectrum of Irish skin tones, this palette features everything you need to shape and transform your face. You can easily highlight, contour, shimmer, and color, for a perfectly sculpted look. These long-lasting, ultra-blendable shades create a flawless, even finish and effortless contour. What’s more, you’ll find a set of pro step-by-step guidelines inside, certain to have you sculpting like an expert in no time. Step 1 – Highlight. Create volume with the light matte shade. Step 2 – Contour. Shape with the deep matte shade. Step 3 – Shimmer. Increase volume with the iridescent light shade. Step 4 – Colour. Colour your cheeks with the blush shade. €40.

PRO SCULPTING PALETTE MEDIUM

 

For those who prefer powder products, just today, we were treated to a sample of the limited edition Megan’s Face Kit from Fuschia. A gorgeous collection of six powder shades, adding a shape to your face has never been easier. These shades can also be used to enhance your eyes and your brows, meaning less weight in your make-up bag. What we love about this palette is the size of the pans; you won’t be running out of product after a few nights of contoured debauchery. The top 3 shades are for highlighting, the bottom three for contouring. Whether you’re a false tan fanatic or a pale Irish beauty, you’ll find these workable with a light touch. Slim, compact and super handy, another Irish make-up hero has been born. €35. Fuschia.ie
