The highly coveted Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit is here!
Sold out around the world, the Contour Kit, not unlike all Anastasia products, is a must have for professional make-up artists and beauty junkies alike.
Anastasia Beverly Hills became a household name last year as Queen of the Brow. The brow’s were the main obsession of 2014, but long before professional eye brow shaping became the norm, Anastasia was ahead of the game, creating innovative brow products to enhance women’s natural beauty. Now her brow wiz pencils, powders and dip brow‘s are the best selling brow products in the world.
Forever being ahead of the trend, or perhaps even setting the trend, Anastasia’s Contour Kit was the first of it’s kind. Realising the growing popularity of contouring seen on the likes of fabulous celebs such as Kim Kardashian, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit features 3 highlight shades and 3 contouring shades.
So what does contouring and highlighting actually do?
As seen in the picture above, use the dark shades of the palette to emphasise where shadows hit your face. So apply on the hollows of your cheeks, your temples, the sides of your nose and under your lips. This will give the effect of high cheek bones, and a slimmer nose, making your face look thinner and more defined. Then highlight with the lighter shades the parts of your face that the light naturally hits, so, your chin, your forehead, under your eyes and the top of your nose to highlight your bone structure and give your face a radiant glow.
The contour kit is great because it contains a variety of three matte contouring shades; Nutmeg. Havana, Espresso (matte shades are the best for contouring, avoid glittery, shimmery shades to ensure your face doesn’t end up a muddy mess). No matter your skin type, these shades will work for you. Nutmeg is the palest shade which is ideal for those with more fair skin, Espresso is perfect for medium skin and Havana is more orange-based for those with dark skin. It’s also great for those whose skin shades fluctuate with the weather, eg more sun exposure or self-tan.
The kit also contains three highlighting shades, Peaches & Cream and Macchiato are matte highlighting shades, with Peaches & Cream being particularly good at disguising redness and dark circles. These shades are idal to use as an under eye setting powder as well. Then 10k is the most beautiful, shimmery highlight, great for getting that glowy look the Kardashian’s are renowned for. The powders are very high pigmentation and quality and blend on the skin with ease. All powders have also been dermatologist tested to be hyper allergenic.
Get these six great shades in one convenient, slim, light weight kit. The packaging, like everything Anastasia, is totally luxe with magnetic close and replaceable bottom to easily change the shades as you need.
