Insta Live 4 – All About Contour and Highlight

LIVE 4 – All about Contour and Highlight

In this Instagram live, over at @blushbeautyandhair, we discussed our favourite contour and highlight products, from barely there to mega-watt glow…

Anastasia Bevery Hills, Pro Series Contour Kit, £42

Great for:  Subtle contour with all the colours you could need.

Not so good for:  Better for those who will need all the colours, you might find you just end up using one colour.

Grace loves it because:
The diversity of colours mean you can create a subtle contour on most skin tones.


Kevin Aucoin The Sculpting Powder, £35

Great for: Those that love a good powder contour.

Not so good for: Those that contour heavily every day – the small size means you would have to repurchase regularly which would get very expensive.

Penny loves it because: It is the perfect grey-brown which mimics shadows beautifully. It also comes in three shades so will suit most skin tones.


Becca, Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in Opal, £30

Great for:  A beautiful gold highlight that is universally flattering

Not so good for:  Those that prefer a cream or liquid based highlight.

Grace loves it because:
It’s so natural but leaves the skin with a lovely glow that you can build upon for a night out.  The powder is so soft it almost feels creamy.


Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter in Pearl, £24

Great for: A gorgeous, subtle glow.

Not so good for: Those who want their highlight to be seen from space.

Penny loves it because:  It looks beautiful on all skin tones and gives a wonderful, lit-from-within glow.


Iconic London, Iluminator, £30

Great for:  Those who want a highlighter that can be natural or built up to a megawatt shine.

Not so good for:  If you want it to be nautal it really needs to be buffed in so if you don’t like to use brushes or beauty blenders this is not for you.

Grace loves it because:
It’s so concentrated you need the tiniest drop to give you a beautiful glow.  You can add it to foundation, primer or moisturiser making this product super versatile.  Comes in 4 colours.


Kora Organics, Rose Quartz Luminizer, £25

Great for:  Those who like a pinky tone to their highlighter.

Not so good for:  Those who have very tanned or darker skin tones.

Penny loves it because:  It gives an amazing sheen to the face and works particularly well for very fair skin.
