Contouring On A Budget

Contouring On A Budget
It's getting closer and closer to that time of the year where bronzing, strobing, sculpting, contouring and highlighting is in for achieving that healthy, summery glow we all lust for. Contouring is definitely a part of my makeup routine that I cannot leave out unless I am running late, as it makes such a difference to giving your face dimension.

For today's post I am sharing with you 3 contour kits that are inexpensive and easy to get a hold of that will give you that 3D finish.

Maybelline Master Sculpt Contouring £6.99
Out of all 3 contour kits this one is the most practical as it not only contains the highlight and bronzer, but just underneath there is a mirror and a contour brush - perfect for on the go! This contour kit is really subtle but gives a gorgeous shimmer on your cheek bones that looks lovely and glowing. I find contouring with this palette very easy, a little goes a long way and the colour shade is spot on. The little brush it comes with is also very handy and applies the product precisely into your cheekbones without overly doing it.

Sleek Makeup Face Contour Kit £6.49
This was the first ever contour kit I bought so it's lived in my collection for quite awhile now. This two in one kit also comes with a handy mirror that is perfect for on-the-go or to pop into your bag for touch ups. This is great product and again the shades are spot on, I have pale skin so I always reach for the 'light' shades. This one does take a bit more time to blend in so you do have to have a bit more patience. However the highlighter is incredible, I went through a faze of using this highlighter all the time because I loved how glowing it made my skin look.

This is definitely the best palette for price, if you are starting out with makeup I would definitely recommend picking up this one as it is so inexpensive. Out of the 3 this contour kit has more of a thicker texture which is perfect for sculpting. It does require a lot of trial and errors, more errors than trials for me. But once you nail it the results are insanely good! I really like the highlight for my brow bone it instantly makes them stand out and look sharp.

What inexpensive contour palette do you recommend??

  2. I've just written a post about the Collection contour kit. It was about £5 but is now only £3!! I love it because I can't be dealing with 7 different colours in one palette :D x

  7. I've never actually tried the Sleek Contour kit despite it being so popular, perhaps I've missed a trick there! I really love the Makeup Revolution Pro Contour kit - it has 8 shades similar to the ABH one but only costs £6 - the pale yellow shade inside the palette is perfect for setting under the eyes too! Recently I've purchased the Make Up Geek contour powder which was £8 - they've got a wide range of shades in warm and cool undertones so they're really great too!

    1. I don't know how I feel about 8 shaded palettes for contouring, it's probably amazing if you are getting ready with your friends!

  10. I love the Sleek contour kit, I first bought it years ago! In addition to the ones you've mentioned, I highly recommend L'Oreal's contour palette, and it's a cream option too for those who prefer a cream contour that's also super affordable.

  13. I also love the Sleek Contour Kit! I have the face from kit which is basically the same and I'd definitely pick it up again. Freedom are such a good brand so I'll definitely be checking that contour kit out. I also want to try the Barry M chizzled cheeks palette but not sure whether it'll be pale enough for my ridiculous pale skin haha:-)
