Makeup Revolution HD Pro Powder Contour

I have to say, I'm not the best at contour. I find it way too hard to find the perfect shades that blend well and are perfect for fair skin. I really don't want it to look like I have 2 noticeable stripes down each side of my face. I decided to give this one from Makeup Revolution a try since every other product from them I've loved. I wasn't disappointed!

The palette has 8 different shades in, ranging from darker contour shades, lighter highlighting shades and a pearlescent shimmery highlighter for the cheek bones. It really is an all in one palette - can't really go wrong for £10!

Starting with the highlighting shades, there are 4 matte light powders in the palette. These come in really handy for setting concealer since they're not translucent. It adds a little more coverage, which for me is always a bonus. I tend to use the more pink undertoned powders since they're a closer match to my foundation colour. The other yellow toned powders are rarely used - only sometimes when I use my NARS Sheer Glow foundation in 'Siberia'. In this palette there is also one, super pretty shimmer highlighting shade. This is a pearlescent, white shade which makes it perfect for a natural glow. This shade is a lot more toned down on shimmer than the ones they sell in their famous Golden Sugar palettes, but it is just as effective. I tend to reach for this one on the days I go for a lighter makeup application to add a slight glow to complete the look.

As for the darker contour shades, they run a lot darker than what you would typically expect for a bronzing palette aimed at fair skin. This is definitely not a bad thing. This means I can build up my contour with a few different shades depending on the event I'm putting makeup on for. For example, for day to day wear, I stick to the lightest bronzing shade to give the most natural effect. If I feel like I want to go a little bit heavier with the application, I will build up with the other 2 darker shades. One thing to definitely note with these is to use a very light hand and build up, rather than swirling your brush in the pan uncontrollably. It'll end up being waaaaay too hard to blend since the shades are all so highly pigmented. You'll lose the natural look you typically aim for.

So, once again, Revolution have created an amazing beauty product at an affordable price! Win win situation really! These are currently available in fair (as featured in this post) and light medium.

If you've tried them, what's your favourite Makeup Revolution product?

  1. I really want to try this but haven't placed a Makeup Revolution order in ages! I was a bit disappointed with how long it took them to ship my last one. x
