Sleek Face Contour Kit Review | How To Contour and Highlight10/31/2012Shen
The highlighter has a pale pink satin texture as it should be. It doesn't contain shimmers or glitters that tend to make the face look dirty or overly done. The mirror in the kit is large enough to be able to use this palette anywhere.
If you want a bronzer that doesn't contain shimmer or is satin in texture, Sleek Face Contour Kit might be a good choice. I like that it's matte since those that aren't tend to make the face appear dirty or oily which I think defeats the purpose of face contouring.
I wanted to get the medium shade but it was selling like hotcakes, Smile ran out of stocks already. I opted instead for the Light just because I didn't want to go home empty handed. Thankfully though, it works just as great. Better yet, it gives a natural effect when I do contouring. Less blending as the light matches my skintone well.
My skintone is medium fair or NC30.
To give you an idea on how I used e Sleek Face Contour Kit, here's a diagram. Hope it helps!
My face for have a big nose, so I applied the powder on the side, creating a shadow that flattens the area. I also have big cheeks and Round face shape. To diminish it, I dragged the contour powder onto my jawline and hallows of the cheek bones to deepen the shadows on my face. Giving the illusion that I have thinner face. My forehead tends to protrude so I minimize it by applying the shadow on to the hairline. In between, I applied highlight to better accentuate the contour.
Like with everything else, practice is the key. But first, take away the fear of looking unnatural. Contouring is actually very helpful in bringing definition to your face, bringing out the best in your features. It's accentuates your fabulous cheekbones. And it could minimize your flaws, like it did to my big nose and protruding and chubby jawline.
Learning how to contour your face also lessens the need for someone to do your own makeup. In the end, this skill can actually save you more time and money. Now, who says makeup can't help improve your life? :)
