Sleek Cream Contour Palette - Light*

For the past few weeks I have been experimenting with cream contouring. I'm usually a huge fan of powder contour, but after attending the Masterclass and seeing it being used, I decided to give it a bash!

I went about this by applying my regular foundation and then going in with a contour shade below my cheekbones as normal. The contour shade I close was the second deepest shade (the middle pan on the bottom row) and I applied it with a Blank Canvas Cosmetics F21 Angled Brush and blended it with my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.

At first it looks a bit scary but then when you blend it, the stark lines fade out and it leaves a really natural finish - perfect for everyday wear. Then  I set it with a powder, ideally I would prefer a translucent powder but I've been using the Natural Collection Pressed Powder in Cool. This sets the cream without altering the pigmentation! You could also just opt not to set it at all and go for a natural, dewy finish.

I'm so impressed with this palette, and it has quickly become a staple in  my routine. I like to use the concealer shades when I travel, making it a viable option when I'm away from my extensive vanity, especially given the giant mirror inside. Expect to see this in quite a few GRWM posts in the future!
