I have wanted to try cream contouring for a while now but I was struggling to find an affordable kit that I could try out, until I found the w7 Face Shaper Kit. This kit costs €6 in Ireland but can be bought on-line I will leave all links below to buy it on-line.
1. First I applied a light layer of foundation but I made sure to not put powder on until I had finished everything. I then apply the cream bronzer to my temples (in 3 short horizontal strokes), just under my cheekbones, below my jawline, the crease of my eyes and down either side of my nose.
2.Then with my foundation brush I blend everything in using a stippling motion (bouncing the brush up and down on the skin). I am really impressed with the cream bronzer, it blends out really well and doesn’t look cakey at all. The “highlight” colour however I am not too impressed by it is just a plain white cream product it doesnt highlight at all so, to highlight my undereyes I used my Rimmel wake me up concealer. I applied this in a triangle shape as always, this will highlight your under eye area without using a shimmer highlight shade.
3.Once the concealer is set I set everything with powder, I put Mattify original setting powder under my eyes, Collection Lasting Perfection Powder where I applied foundation and I went over the cream bronzer with Mac Cosmetics Bronzer in Matte Bronze to make sure everything stays in place (I also added this bronzer to the crease of my eyes for definition). I then added a little powder highlight everywhere I had not contoured to add more definition and highlight to my face. I also filled in my eyebrows using the Smashbox Brow Tech in Smashing Auburn.
5.To finish this look I kept It really simple by adding some mascara and a lip balm. I used they’re real by Benefit and NYC’s Applelicious Glossy Balm in the shade Applelicious Pink . Overall I am really impressed by this contour kit for the bronzer only, It looks really natural on the skin and applies really easily. This kit comes with a brush which is great to draw out the lines but blends nothing at all, I would recommend using a flat top foundation brush to blend everything out. For the price I think this kit is a bargain.
I hope this post helped you out, I think I am now converted to cream contouring it is so much easier and it looks more natural than powder contouring. I will leave links below to buy this product on line and as always thanks for reading :).
