The Contouring Craze

Perfectly chiseled cheek bones and dewey cheek bones are all the rage this season. Conturing has become the hottest topic in beauty as of late.  Inspired by the likes of Kim Kardashian and other heavily contoured celebrities, I'm thinking this look is here to stay for a while.  If you're looking  
to get into this look, I would first suggest that you invest in the proper tools, a palette and the correct brush.   While you'll be just fine using your favorite bronzer and highlighter (my favorites: Laguna by Nars and Mary Lou Manizer by theBalm), a contouring palette will give you many more options for greater depth.  I've heard great things about the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit.

For a contouring brush you'll want something angled that will fit into the concave of your cheekbones.  The MAC 168 is your best pick, but if the $35 price tag is a bit too much, don't worry, the brush is easily dupable.

There are different ways to contour your face, depending on you face shape, see the image below.  A search on Youtube should yield a tutorial by a professional makeup artist so that you can copy and rock this look.
