With the tricks of the trade becoming mainstream, it isn't surprising that contour palettes have gained considerable traction recently. Every makeup artist carries them in their kits, and now makeup enthusiasts flock to add them to their daily routines because the benefits are many. They provide a convenient selection of products to create chiseled features and the ability to direct the way that light dances on the high points of the architecture of the face. A good contour palette creates the perfect chiaroscuro effect that produces the effect of light and shadow modeling where it either does not exist, or where it needs to be further accentuated and enhanced.
Susan Thompson, a professional celebrity makeup-artist in Los Angeles, added an amazing contour palette to her eponymously named makeup line, and the quality is breathtaking. Susan Thompson Contour Palette 6-Well features 3 powder highlighter shades, 2 powder contour shades and one powder bronzer shade. All six are ultra-finely milled, boast the creamiest consistency, and effortlessly glide across the skin. They neither settle into fine lines, nor do they accentuate pores.
The compact itself is huge and features a very generous amount of product.
The mirror on the inside of the lid, unlike many compact mirrors, is very large and easy to use.
Bottom Row Contours (Left to Right): Sun-kissed warm mid-tone brown (Matte), cooler leaning mid-tone taupe brown (Matte) and mid-tone neutral bronze (Bronze).
STEP TWO - BRONZE: Follow with contour shade 6. Apply to nose, cheeks, chin and forehead to add warmth to complexion.
STEP THREE - HI-LITE: Depending on skin tone, use hi-liter shade 1, 2 or 3. Apply to bridge of nose, cupids bow, above lip, above cheekbones and brows.
The darker shades for shading and defining while the lighter shades for sculpting and enhancing features.
