Contouring: Powder V Cream

If you’ve read my blog in the past, you’ll know I’m a big fan of contouring. However, you’ll also know I’ve stuck religiously to powder! click here for powder only contouring guide
However, there’s been a big hype around the Anastasia cream contour kit, so I decided to jump on the bandwagon and try it out.  However, I’ve also heard some negative reviews of the product, and it can look really over the top if the wrong shades are used.
So my mission here is to find the most natural look of powder versus cream…which is a bit ironic considering I’m talking about contouring your face right now! You’ll find a list all of the products used below.

Left (Powder):

Highlighter – Mac defining powder
Shading – Bourjois Paris Bronzer
Bronzer – Sleek contouring pallet shade brozner

Right (Cream):

Highlighter – Benefit high beam and Mac liquid concealer
Shading -Anastasia Beverly contour kit

The verdict:

I’d definitely say the powder is the most natural looking, however I actually prefer the cream. Although I will carry on using the powder for a day time look, as I prefer not to wear too much heavy make-up during the day. The Anastasia Beverly contour kit is so easy to blend, and the coverage from Mac liquid concealer is honestly the best concealer I’ve come across…I definitely recommend you give them a try!
