Contour cream, yaaass, all over it. Contouring sticks? Hmm. Not really into the carved out cheek situation. No brown stripes here, I like to blend.
But you know what I do like? Nose contour. Love me some nose contouring. For the uninitiated, applying a contouring product a couple of shades darker than your foundation down the sides of your nose can make it look slimmer. Try it immediately.
And you know what’s key to a great nose contour? Precision. Now, me and my best fave cream contour, Make Obsession Contour Cream in Light and Light/Medium, £3 each, have been rubbing along just fine. If you are new to contouring and fancy giving it a go, I highly recommend trying these. Suck in you cheeks and apply it to the hollows. Buff a bit into your hairline at the temples. Let me know what you think.
But I thought there might be something better out there for the nose situation.
The Collection Precision Contour Stick, £3.99, is the thing that is better. I nearly didn’t buy it. Paid it a visit, swatched on the hand it seemed a little stiff and hard to blend. So I passed.
But it kept calling to me, from its Superdrug home, give me a try. So I did and it’s great. Super easy to blend, doesn’t disrupt your base.
The shade range is a bit odd. There are three: light, medium and dark. The Medium shade is very warm, but Light is a smashing cool-toned brown that doesn’t look too ashey on the face.
And when I say face I mean nose. I wouldn’t bother with it anywhere else. But if precision contouring is your jam, you might like to check it out.
Til next time,
