LA Colors pro concealers in espreeso and dark cocoa are good contour colors for those who are darker than NW/NC 45. They are cream based (think Make Up Forever Full Coverage concealers).
I use a black radiance powder foundations shades darker than me.. I am going to try the la colors pro concealors

I had it, didn't like it, returned it. I found that the darkest shade wasn't dark enough and the formula was way too sheer. I'm still learning how to perfect contouring and highlighting and I found that powders were easier for me to use. Some people rave about it though, so idk...

No problem! I ended up building a contour kit on Anastasia's website. I posted swatches of it in this thread. Another alternative is to use one of Mac's new blushes (Film Noir or maybe Swiss Chocolate).

My thoughts exactly!!!!! Now the search begins for the perfect highlight for those blushes.
The plum would look pretty with light gold, bronze or even a rose gold highlighter, right? I think a nice taupe highlighter would look good with film noir with a vampy lip or Stone lipstick. That sculpt color in the Charlotte Tilbury Medium-Dark Bronze and Glow might work. I was wondering how I was going to make that side of the palette work because it's too light for a contour and it has shimmer. This might be the solution!
