Contouring Advice for Beginners
Contouring is the thing now, but when you look at some of the You Tube videos and tutorials, it can seem a bit intimidating. I have been trying my own luck at contouring lately, and I have been reading up on what to do and what to use. Some make up experts swear on powder forms. I tried that. I didn’t like it so much. So, this weekend while I was out picking up some last minute supplies for Easter (Okay, so I was stockpiling Cadbury eggs for me. Yeah. I admit it), I made my way over to the cosmetic section at Walmart and picked up the Wet and Wild Contouring Stick along with a few eye crayons, some HD powder, and some eye make up remover.
I don’t usually use Wet and Wild, but I had a limited selection, and it was cheap. I figured that if I didn’t like it, at least I wasn’t out more than a few bucks. Side note on the rest of my haul: the HD Powder is the freaking bomb! It doesn’t make much of a mess, and it really looks great. Anyways, on the back of the Contour Stick packaging is a tutorial on how to use it. I just followed that, and I don’t think my makeup turned out too bad for my first time with it as you can see below.
I know I need more practice, but still it isn’t bad. I may try another one later, but I am trying to be a bit conservative in my spending for the time being, and I am happy with this one. I have been using it for 4 days now, and I haven’t broken out, which is also a plus.
So if you are a newbie to contouring, you might want to try the Wet and Wild Contouring stick. It gives you a good place to start, instructions, and it is less than $5 bucks. In my opinion, it is a win all the way around!
