Sculpt Your Face With Highlighting and Contouring Pencils

4 Feb


Highlighting and contouring used to be a trick of the trade reserved for only the most experienced makeup artists.

With so many great vloggers now showing the way, anybody can do a great job creating the look of a sculpted jaw line.

The latest tools that help enhance your best features are highlighting and contouring pencils. Unlike powders, these pencils are blendable and easy as pie to apply.

Here are few highlighting and contouring pencils carving out new territory.

1. Smashbox Step-By-Step Contour Stick Trio

This little trio of pencils includes three shades that mimic perfect lighting:

  • Contour sculpts by creating shadows.
  • Highlight mimics light reflection to pull features forward.
  • Bronze provides a smooth transition that eliminates the look of harsh lines.

The trio also includes a how-to insert with instructions for achieving the best looks for your face shape.

2. Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight and Contour

The Clinique Chubby Stick tradition continues with a highlight stick (also a great strobing tool) that features a luminous cream with light-reflecting optics that bring your best features forward. The creamy contour stick makes areas appear to recede. Check out more details on the easy to use chubby sticks here.

3. NYX Wonder Stick

This highlighting and contouring tool is a dual-sided stick with a creamy finish that conceals, highlights, and contours. The Wonder Stick comes in 4 shade combos to fit every skin stone, including one universal shade.
