Contouring. It’s something you just can’t avoid these days if you love makeup. If you say you don’t contour, other makeup lovers give you the SIDE-EYE-EVIL-EYE…like you’re some kind of FREAK. Which I am but that’s beside the point. 😛 I’m here to tell you that I DON’T and DID NOT contour in the past because WHY. Contouring is for photos and stage and things like that where it WORKS…but in real life? It’s so OBVIOUS. And I’m not about to walk around pretending that some powders are gonna make me or you think my chubby face is slimmer because HEY. Let’s get real man…. pics are one thing, but in real life? Contouring looks like…CONTOURING.
I’ve tried other powder contouring products like the one by Marc Jacobs(it’s OK) and the Kat Von D one(again, it’s ok? but there’s like ONE shade that works for pale ass me, so WTF is the point of that). I gave up on them quickly because in every day life, who got time for dat? You gotta blend, blend, BLEND, because who wants to look like they have a beard? Yeah, BEARD. I have a double chin so if I’m gonna contour, that’s what I’m gonna contour ok? And if you don’t blend enough, BEARD CITY. Tracy hates beard city. That’s why I use Tinkle Razors, remember? 😀 😀
Make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Face Palette $54
SO…when the Make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Face Palette in #20 Light showed up, I kind of scoffed at it. Kind of late to the contour game Make Up For Ever, no? Where were you last year when everyone came out with contour palettes? Kind of missed the mark there maybe, hey?
HECK. SO. WRONG. SO. SO. WRONG. This is the BEST contouring palette I’ve come across to this date. And now I get why Make Up For Ever took so long to jump on the contour bandwagon.
THEY WANTED TO DO IT RIGHT. AND THEY DID.
This is the light shade, and if you are like me-NC10 NC15, maybe even NC20 in MAC talk I think this one would still work for you-then this palette is PERFECTION. The colours are spot on perfect and not too warm like most contour products out there. The formula is to die for. It’s the same formula of the Ultra HD Cream Blushes which I adore…and I have multiple shades of those and love them a lot. No other cream formula I’ve tried in blush form is so SKIN LIKE. They blend into your skin so seamlessly and just look like they were born there. And that’s exactly what this Make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Face Palette looks like on your skin; like you were BORN with that sculpted jawline, cheekbones, Roman nose…it’s so AWESOME. It’s not often I apply a product onto my skin and make a WHOA noise. I did just that when I applied the contour shade under my cheekbones: WHOA BABY.
What I love about the Make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Face Palette is that this is an all inclusive contour palette-you get a matte and a shimmer highlight, a contour shade, and a blush! It’s all you need for perfectly sculpted cheeks. Seriously.
The Make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Face Palette blends so beautifully and so effortlessly. The coral cheek colour is lovely. Both highlights are amazing. I just can’t get enough of this palette! It’s SO good. It comes in 4 shades, so there is one that’s perfect for every skin tone.
If you’ve hesitated about getting a contour palette because you didn’t know how to use it, then DUDE. Get this one. It blends by itself. It really does. Worth every penny! And the Sephora Spring Sale starts this week, so it’s the perfect time to pick this up! You won’t regret it!
Do you contour every day?
