Make Up Tutorial: Quick Contour

In this make-up tutorial I'm going to be showing you how to get chiseled cheek bones and a glowy highlight - this is the quick contour! I'm using products from the new “Contourious” collection by Catrice Cosmetics. 1.Contouring Brush This brush is pefect for creating definition with its slim ergonomic shape. The bristles are thick and angled which means targeted contouring is a cinch! 2. Sculpted Powder Palette The palette consists of highlight, blush and contour tones.
