WOC: what is your fav. contour product ?

post #1 of 75
Thread Starter 
I am nc40-42, and I am looking for a product to sharply define my cheekbones.

Re: WOC: what is your fav. contour product ?

Hey hunn! I have quite a defined cheekbone naturally but I used to use Stilla duo in the colour 02 Marigold. It is a cream bronzer & highlighter but it has been discontinued! Someties beauty crunch has it!

Now i use Benefit's Hoola bronzer, i bought it from sephora in the set that they had just because i wanted high beam. I tried hoola for contouring & it's amazing too! I'm NC42-45 & you can def use it to contour. You do have to pack on abit more product though, because it's not super dark or anything! But i think since you are fairer then me, it should work fine!

Besides that i have never used any other contouring products! Do to a sephora counter & try it out!

Howdy!

I'm NC43. In the winter I use Stila Sun Bronzer in shade #2 (could go a shade up if you want more defined contouring) and last summer I used MAC Matte bronze, this summer I plan to do the same as well as use Benefit Hoola.

Out of all of these Hoola is probably the deepest but you might want to keep building it up if you want to sharply define.

On YT I've seen some makeup folks use a foundation stick (Mac makes one, Bobbi brown does too) in many shades darker than their skintone to contour. That seems to work really well to get a lot of definition.

Emote or Harmony depending upon my change of color in the summer.

Re: WOC: what is your fav. contour product ?

I'm in and around NC42 and I can use Emote.. but I really like using MSF's. In the winter I can use Medium Deep, and in the summer I can hop up to Dark.

Brown eye shadows also work nicely to contour.. I've got a few that I've stopped using, and will occasionally reach for.

I recently purchased Blunt blush by MAC as a contour powder and I love it. I'm C7 in Studiofix and it works for me. It'll definitely contour your cheeks.

Re: WOC: what is your fav. contour product ?

i think dark brown matte shadows make excellent contour products. the foundation sticks are another great choice, i just find the e/s's offer greater control for me personally.

Re: WOC: what is your fav. contour product ?

I don't know because I really don't contour because the color when I do contour never shows up and I don't know what NC or NW shade I am. But this is also a question what is the equilvilant (spelling?) To a Revlon shade of Caramel to a MAC foundation? Can some one Private Message me with the answer because I don't want to get this topic going off topic.

Re: WOC: what is your fav. contour product ?

I wonder if Mac's Raizin Blush would be a good contour colour. I've had it for quite some time and it's just sitting in my makeup case looking all dejected. lol

I feel like I should at least give it a try. Has anyone tried Raizin as a contour?

It's gorgeous, isn't it!

 

I like Blunt for contouring, too. I would have never thought to use Raizin. It seems a little too orange ...

Earlier I actually got a very good contour at NORDSTROMS using Blunt blush, Embark e/s and Raizin Blush... It was really soft looking when Raizin was added for warmth smiles.gif

For my nose, Blunt all the way. For my cheeks I like a more defined contour...so when I do it, either MAC Shadowy and Definitive.

Hmm - never heard of those shades. Are they PRO contours?

Those came out a few year ago. I'm not sure if they can still be found at PRO or not. Bone Beige and Sculpt are the only 2 on the regular MAC site right now.

By looking at Temptalia's swatches, the shades Definitive and Warm Light almost remind me of my Sleek Contour Kit in Dark. Almost.

My MAC girl used Blunt as contour base all the way to the hairline, she blended Embark over it for depth and to build a hollow, then Raizin was added as a soft warm veil... It was beautiful smiles.gif

Thanks Ladies!

 

The upcoming F & B collex by MAC has contour cream so I going to check those out.

 

I love using Blunt to contour though.

 

I also picked up Bronze Bronzing Powder to contour (and use as a bronzer) as well.

I agree I use Embark. Perfect for contouring. blunt doesn't show up on me.
