Hey, hey! Few more days left until 2018 begins! What’s everyone doing on New Years Eve? Derek and I haven’t decided just yet, but there’s always so much going on. Before we wrap up 2017 I thought I’d share my top 5 fav contour and highlight palettes.
That’s one thing I get asked about a lot, and I’ve definitely tried a bunch of these so figured I could help you guys if you were looking to purchase a palette. If there’s one thing I know for sure, it’s that I’d rather have an entire palette than a few separate products. It’s just too convenient having everything you need in one spot.
Ok we are going to talk about one company that lead the way when it comes to contouring and highlighting, and that is Anastasia Beverly Hills. They nailed it with the original contour kit, the first of its kind released. Amazing. Also the first one I ever owned. The colours that come in it are great and the palette is customizable when it comes to ordering the refills. Also I want to talk about their cream contour palette. Amazing. I love to layer products so starting out with a cream contour, setting with a translucent powder, and then topping with a powder contour palette is the way I usually do things.
Ok so the Tarteist Pro Glow palette is a new find for me and I have to say simply gorgeous! The contour color is perfect in my opinion and the highlight colours are beautiful. I just wish they had a cream highlight color, but hey, the shimmery highlights make up for it.
If you are just starting out with contour and highlight and don’t want to break the bank, the NYX Cosmetics Highlight and Contour Pro Palette is perfect for you. Great colors, great payoff and great wearability, all at a great price.
If you’re looking for an all in one, everyday option, the CoverFX Contour Kit is the perfect choice. It has your foundation color, contour, highlight plus a shimmery highlight color. Can’t beat that!
