The Perfect Contour

Finding the perfect contour products can be difficult. But I have found the best contour powder for only £5! Let me introduce you to the NYX Blush in Taupe.


I've been using this for a while now after seeing EssieButton rave about it. It has an ashy colouring which makes it perfect for less harsh contour. Using bronzer can cause an orange look particularly for people as pale as me. I apply this with the Real Techniques contour brush underneath my cheek bones, up to my temple and just below my jawline.The blush blends like a dream. It has good pigmentation without being so pigmented it is difficult to work with. The only down side to it is the packaging is pretty awful. It looks cheap, the writing is fading off and it's a nail chipper to open. It only costs £5.50 from the NYX UK website or $6 in the US which is an absolute bargain. If you are on the hunt for the perfect contour powder for pale skin then this is it. 

Do you like to contour? What do you use?
Thanks for reading!x

  5. Believe it or not I've never even tried contouring - I'm not the best at applying make up and I'm scared of looking clowny! This sounds fab though, I love the subtle, neutral shade :-)

    1. Is it definitley trust worthy off amazon? I've never tried elf before but if I do I'll look into that. Its so hard to find bronzers light enough x
