Contouring; it can be a difficult one to master but an absolute god send when it comes to disguising the odd chin here and there or creating the illusion that you are actually in possession of a set of cheekbones.
But where do you start?
Before you even get onto technique there's a million and one products and brushes out there which promise to give you the face of Kimmy K - along with waist trainers, bum lift pants and lip suckers of course. I'm sure the next treatment will be to just bottle Kardashian DNA and splice it directly into our own.
Before you spend a fortune on 83 different shades of foundation and powders at £20 a go have a look at the Contour Cosmetics palette. You get 6 shades of cream foundation (dead easy to blend) and they sell the perfect brushes with which to apply - it's the only contouring kit you'll ever need.
I asked my fabulous colleague at The Secret Warehouse, Kate Hayes, to film a little demo so you can see the palette in action. Kate worked at the famous Liverpool based Peaches & Cream and has since moved on to bigger things and set up her own make up academy *clappy hands emoji*

What did I think?
Well it is really easy to use and it blends like an absolute dream but what I found was the best thing about it is that because the product gives such a full coverage you really do only need a tiny bit of it - especially for a daytime look. This set will last you forever. To get a really good cream foundation in even 2 shades would set you back over £20 a go and the same for a couple of good quality brushes; the full Contour Cosmetics palette including the two brushes (one for application and one for blending) is only £70 which is ridiculously good value for money. If you have your own brushes which you're happy with then you can get the palette on its own for £42.00. They sell out really quickly though so if you see it in stock - get it quick!
