So we’re going to start doing a weekly review of a different makeup product, we used to do this a lot in the paper but as times gone on plans have changed so I’ve decided to bring this back. Of course if you have any ideas or reviews you want to write let us know @PulseMediaUCLan
We’re kicking off our weekly reviews with the amazing Anastasia Beverly Hills Pro Series Contour Kit.
At £39, this product is probably the last one people will buy if they only want a slight contour. I was lucky in that this was bought for me as a present, which I am very grateful for as I couldn’t afford to buy this. I received this in light to medium, it is also available medium to dark and dark to very dark.
You can also buy a cream version but I prefer the powder version as I feel I can blend this easier and get the desired look I want. The thing I love the most about this product is that there are 3 different shades you can use to contour with.
I love this purely for the fact on different days I want a different contour look, such as days at work and university I prefer a subtle look which is perfect as I can use the lighter brown (Fawn/Tawny) to create this look.
It also comes with 3 shades to highlight with. My favourite one of these is Banana, the pale yellow, I use this as a base for highlighting with my glow kit or as a subtle highlight on work days.
I love this product but there are days when it doesn’t get used as much as it should.
I’m not the palest of people but I don’t like to do a dark contour, I like to make it look as natural as possible which is why I wanted the lightest shades possible.
I like to wear my makeup every day, I know your skin needs days off but I like to do my makeup. This is a great palette for creating a natural look which lasts me all day.
I know a lot of people are unsure whether to use cream or powder contour kits, for me personally I prefer powder as I feel if you want to correct it its easier to do so but also you can layer on easier if you want to define your features more.
My only issue with the palette has been that the excess from the powder can go into the other sections meaning you can lose out on some of it.
