Made-Up: Smashbox Step-by-Step Contour Kit in Deep

I was sent this Smashbox Step-by-Step Contour Kit (Deep) as an Essence Insider to try out for deeper skintones and give my opinion on in a survey. The kit comes with a 3-color powder palette (contour, highlight, bronze), detailed #shapematters instructions with pictures for all face shapes, and a contour brush.

I used all 3 shades. The matte "Warm Highlight" shade to set my undereye concealer and nose. I used the included brush to place the "Deep Contour" shade then my own duo fiber brush to blend it out. The "Terracotta Bronze" shade I used as a blush and brought it up to my hairline (I do this with all of my blushes).

The first picture shows my cheekbone contour. It's not a dramatic contour as I was going to work AND it was a Friday, but it's more than my natural contour is without makeup. I don't contour everyday but I definitely go nuts with highlighting and blushing 😝

The second picture is a look at my nose contour. The contour and the camera angle make my face and nose look more slim (it's magic!)

Rest of makeup:
Eyes- Avon Supershock Gel liner in Cobalt, top and bottom. Anastasia Beverly Hills Shadow Couture World Traveler Palette, Spoiled and Pink Champagne for brow highlight and Fudge for brow bone.

Highlighter- NYX Enigmatic with a little MAC Stereo Rose on top.

Lips- Wet n Wild Fergie Penthouse Sweet w/NYX Bloom liner.
