Contouring Collectible: Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Cream Kit

14 Dec

Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Cream Kit

There are two reasons I decided to pick up the Anastasia Cream Contour Kit.

First, most of the contouring that I usually do is with powder (like the Too Faced Cocoa Contour kit). Powder is a quick fix, but sometimes it doesn’t blend as well as cream.

Second, I’m really–fair even in the summer. Contour shades often look too muddy on me.

Unlike most contour kits, the Anastasia kit comes in two shades:

  • Light to Medium
  • Medium to Tan

For me, that means my fair skin contouring prayers have been answered.

I know that a lot of makeup artists prefer cream contouring and it may be a little more work, but this kit is beautiful. It lets you achieve all the contouring and highlighting effects that you see in videos to emphasize your eyes, cheekbones, nose, and jawline.

Here are the replaceable shades in the Light kit (there is a comparable range of shades in the Medium kit):

Highlighting Shades

  • Fair (white)
  • Neutral (ivory)
  • Banana (yellow undertone)

Contouring Shades

  • Java (medium cool brown)
  • Light Sculpt (medium warm brown)
  • Havana (reddish dark brown)

There is definitely a learning curve that comes with this contour kit. If you want to try different looks and improve your contouring/sculpting skills, this cream contouring kit is a great start.

Tip: If you’re using a sponge or beauty blender, mist some water or setting spray to enhance blendability.

      You can find Anastasia Beverly Hills products at Sephora. I’m not sure if it’s available in the UK stores but you probably can order it online and pay international shipping, if necessary.
