I've never been big on contouring, probably because I wasn't quite sure how to do it before! I decided it was about time I jumped on the bandwagon, and decided to get myself a little contour kit to get practicing.
I opted for the Makeup Revolution Ultra Sculpt & Contour Palette in Ultra Fair and have come to the conclusion that it's probably the best contour kit for beginners!
In the palette are three compact powders; one matte bronzer for contouring, one pinkish matte blusher and one light powder for highlighting.
The powders are quite compact, but I found that I needed to actually pick quite a lot of product up on the brush to get the desired effect, meaning they aren't very pigmented. However, this is quite a good thing when it comes to contouring, as it means the product will be easily blendable and not leave any hard lines; which is exactly the case with the Makeup Revolution contour kit.
I found it super easy to blend out, which was helpful as a beginner, because it meant I could apply in small amounts and blend out, and if I wasn't happy for the results, I could apply more to build up and blend out again. Similarly, if I had applied too much, I could blend out enough to tone down the blush or bronzer.
I would definitely recommend the Makeup Revolution Ultra Sculpt and Contour Kit for contouring beginners, but also for experienced contourers, as it's a fantastic little kit, great quality and is only £3.50 direct from the Makeup Revolution website! Fantastic value!
