Crazy for Contour: My Top Picks

10:48:00 AM

I must admit, when I first started out with makeup, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. Crazy white under eye concealer that made me look like a reverse Panda (yeahp, that was a look), Sharpie brows (I still cringe but mostly laugh when I see pictures) and blush that I would put ALL OVER MAH FEZ.

Suffice to say, I was a looker... not for my beauty or anything, but for my horrible makeup ways. Thank goodness for YouTube videos and constant practice (Note to self: LESS IS MORE) and I've proudly come a long way since Sharpie Brows circa 2011

Cut to one of my favorite makeup steps- contouring. Yes yes, we all can thank the Kardashians for introducing us to the world of contouring on a regular basis, having our cheekbones so sharp they could cut a person and our highlight game so beaming it's blinding. Well, I've finally found my 3 favorite bronzing and contouring products that I want to share with all of you.

Make Up For Ever Pro Bronze Fusion in M20

I'm pretty sure this is my favorite powder bronzer of all time. It's so finely milled that it's creamy on the skin and it gives you that extra oomf on those days when you feel extra pale and dull. With no shimmer and a warm undertone, you can't go wrong (or overboard) with this bronzer. It lasts all day despite the heat and sweat #glamorous and is definitely worth the money!

Loreal Infallible Pro-Contour in Light

Sadly this was given to me by my sister from the US. I haven't seen this around the Philippines just yet but let me tell you that for a drugstore product, this is absolutely amazing! The contour powder is the perfect cool toned brown that helps sharpen the cheekbones, giving you that model-esque shadow. The highlighter that it comes with is just as good as well. Although it looks shimmery on the pan, it has no glitter when on the skin. It just gives you that light and healthy glow above the cheeks. I've even used this around my face at times! 

Make Up For Ever Pro-Sculpting Palette in 30

ERMERGERDTHEREARENOWORDSFORTHISBEAUTY! Haha no but seriously, this is one of the best additions to my makeup collection, like, ever. And it's all thanks to Jake Galvez! When I did an event for Jollibee a couple of months back, I was lucky enough to get my makeup done by the genius that is Jake. If you follow him on Instagram, you would know about all the amazing looks he does for today's hottest local celebrities and brides. When he brought this bad boy out, I knew I had to get it. It is the perfect cream palette you will ever need. From a high coverage concealer that blends easily, to a healthy pinched cheek blush color, this is all I chuck into my bag when I'm heading out. And did I mention the contour and highlight in this? #todiefor

Those are my top picks (so far) when it comes to contouring and bronzing up my face. What are your favorites?
