Today I wanted to try out my new contour palettes from Makeup Revolution that I purchased last week.
I had a bit of a try with some of the shades last week and was super happy with the outcome. So I wanted to start to put them into my daily routine.
They are cream contour kits, I’ve only ever used powder before, alongside light concealers and darker foundations. So I don’t have a particular technique.
I applied my normal base of Maybelline Baby Skin.
Then I took a flat brush for highlighting. Using the first and lightest shade from the light contour palette.
I applied it under my eyes, tops of cheek bones, chin, edges of my mouth, Cupid’s bow, bridge of my nose, forehead and a small amount of my lower jaw line. These are all the areas I like to highlight on my face.
Then I took my contour brush and applied the shades that are last on the top line and second last on the bottom line from the dark palette and applied them under my cheekbones, and across the top of my forehead (I usually blend upwards when doing so).
Then I applied the darkest shade from the dark palette on the edges and end of my nose, Cupid’s bow and under my bottom lip in the crease of my chin.
I then blended the rough edges using a stippling brush. To make it less harsh.
Then onto my normal routine, I applied a small amount of Maybelline Better Skin foundation and Maxfaxtor luminizer foundation (mixed together). Then took my expert face brush and applied the smallest amount and gently blended it all in.
I then took my normal Sleek mini contour powder kit. Used a small amount on my contour areas just to make them pop a bit more.
For blush I used a small amount of Soap and glory : love at first blush.
Eyes I used Pop beauty’s sooty black eye liner and Maybelline’s, The Rocket mascara. (Remember I don’t wear eye shadow)
Brows I used my Collection Work the colour eyebrow kit, using the shade black.
And finally for my lips I used WetnWild Beauty Benefits Duel Effects lip liner alongside Mac’s Satin Faux lipstick.
I really love these Palettes. They were just under £10 each, which I think is a bargain! The packaging and presentation is lovely and they look expensive.
I obviously cannot compare them to any other cream contour kits because I haven’t tried any as of yet!
I’m super excited to try their cream blush range as well as many other products they have to offer.
Thanks so much for reading! Let me know if you have tried these yet 💕💕💕💕
