    contour sets

    hey ladies,
    im trying to find a new contour set, im naturally very pale so need a lot of lighter tones to use,
    ive currently been using sleek's concealer palette in the lightest tones as i cannot find a contour palette light enough, so i use this along side bronzer for the darker area on my nose, cheek bones and forehead.
    can anyone recommend a decently priced contour palette?
    thanks

    Personally, I wouldn't recommend a contour palette unless: 1) you're going to use every shade in it (IMO, most people don't need and/or will never use every shade in a contour palette) or 2) you're a makeup artist building a kit so will need multiple powders for various undertones and skintones.

    My recs are:
    * one of the new Makeup Geek contour powders (they're divided up by skintone (porcelain, fair, medium, or deep) and undertone (cool or warm); $10 USD, but you will need to buy a palette to keep it in.)
    * MAC eyeshadow in Omega ($10 USD for a pan or $16 in a pot; also a great crease or transition shade, yay for multitasking!)
    * Inglot has some contour powders ($15 USD for a Freedom System pan; 504 or 505 would work for you)

    And for highlighting, any iridescent white or champagne eyeshadow would work (Makeup Geek e/s pans are $7 USD; Ice Queen or Shimma Shimma would be fab highlights on pale skins).
    NARS SG Siberia(ish) & RCC Chantilly; Kevyn Aucoin SSE in SX01; ABH Stick Foundation in Porcelain; circa 10-15 in MAC intensity. Oily t-zone.

    I wouldn't go with a kit either. I bought the Anastasia one and its great but I only use maybe 2 shades. I don't even really care for the highlighter. Have you looked at the wet n wild ones? They are super cheap.
