Before buying a contour palette, read these tips
Contouring means changing your look completely. It can transform your look so easily by just playing with shadow and light. But you should always be careful while choosing the right contour because you would want your features to enhance instead of making them look muddy.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind while buying a contour palette:
Pick powder products- Well contour palette comes in both powder as well as cream but it is advised to always use powder ones especially for the ones who are beginners. Powder contours are easy to blend rather than cream ones. Also, it is easier to get the desired result this way.
Pay attention to the shade- Choosing the right shade of contour and highlight is the most important and difficult part. The best way to choose the right shade is to check with your foundation. Always choose two shade darker when you're choosing a shade for contour and when you're choosing a shade for highlight then go for two shade lighter than your foundation.
Always pick matte finishes- Don't forget that contouring purpose is to create a shadow so choose a contour that doesn't have any shimmer as the glitter will only reflect the light. So, always use contours which have a matte finish.
Creams have a more natural, skin-like finish that steps away from that dated makeup look. It's great for everyday wear and is much quicker to work with compared to powders. Powder contours can give you a more chiseled, defined look, and a completely matte finish.
