Contouring is something I've recently started doing. If you don't know what it is, it's basically adding darker and lighter powders (or creams) to your face, creating shadows and textures to make your face appear slimmer, more chiseled, higher cheekbones, etc. If you google You Tube for contouring videos, or do a quick search on pinterest, you'll find a plethora of how tos! I love the results, but finding inexpensive contouring powders has been somewhat difficult. Bronzers, especially, have been hard to find. Try finding bronzers that don't have mounds of glitter built in :( If you're trying to contour, the best bronzers (used to create the shadows) are ones that don't contain shimmer, glitter, and have a matte finish. I've personally contoured with both liquid foundations (I used Neutrogena Healthy Skin.), & powders, and love them both equally.
While looking through Target, I glanced around their ELF shelves, and found this simple little compact.
I love that it contained both the bronzer, and the blush!
Here are the swatches for both the bronzer and the blush. The bronzer was matte, and brown (not orange!! which is def. something you don't want.), and the blush was like a deep peach. It had a bit of shimmer, but that's okay. The blush is applied on the apples of your cheeks, and you want shimmer in that "area" to create a higher cheekbone affect.
Have you guys tried the ELF line?
