Tidbit Tuesday: Smashbox Contour Kit Review

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Contouring has become a huge trend in the makeup world, everyone from Kerry Washington to Jessica Alba has joined in. Now, with the help of Youtube tutorials and how to guides, anyone can achieve this flawless look. I decided to give this trend a try and turns out... I really love it. I feel that it slims down my face and gives it a natural glow that I can't achieve with just powder. Recently, I went into Sephora and asked what product they recommended for contouring and they directed me over to the Smashbox Step-By-Step Contour Kit. This kit is $45 and includes an angled brush, step-by-step face shape guide, and a contouring palate. First off, the brush is amazing! It alone would probably be around $30. The best thing is that it is perfectly angled so that you can better apply the powder in the specific areas that need it. I also really love the step-by-step guide that comes with the kit. It shows you how to contour for your face shape, because different faces need to highlight and darken different areas to achieve the right contour look. In the past, I have tried contour sticks, but it was difficult to achieve the natural look I wanted. With the Smashbox Step-By-Step Contour Kit, I feel that it provided me just what I wanted! I can't even think of any negatives other than that I go through the contour powder a lot quicker than the other three and they do not sell the powders individually. However, I did end up getting Smashbox's bronzer to use as the contour powder instead of buying a whole new kit...so really, there are no negatives. If you are in the market for a contour kit, I highly recommend using this one, you won't be disappointed!
