How to Contour with the Anastasia Cream Contour Kit

Hello beauties,

Hopefully I’m not alone in saying I’m completely new to contouring. I’ve always found it a little daunting, honestly I didn’t want to spend too much on a fad and the shades are typically too light for me to contour. Lucky for me I was gifted the Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit* in Light. Even being a newbie to contouring I know Anastasia Beverly Hills is the way to go!

About the Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit*

  • Retails for $70 from Sephora Australia
  • Available in 2 shades, light and medium
  • Both palettes contain 3 highlighting shades and 3 contour shades

How I use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit:

  • Apply foundation as usual
  • Using a fluffy brush I applied the Banana shade to my under eye area to create a more highlighted effect
  • Using a different clean fluffy brush I applied the darker contouring shade Java to the hollows of my cheeks, a bit on the temples and on my jaw line
  • Using a damp Beauty Blender I blended out the Banana Shade
  • Using the fluffy brush that I applied my contour with I blended the shade using circular motions
  • If you get a bit messy using the damn Beauty Blender around the edges to soften the contour
  • After I’m happy with the look, I applied some concealer under my eye- keep in mind the Anastasia Banana shade is only a highlighter not a concealer
  • I then set the rest of my face with some powder and I’m done

Overall Thoughts

I found it was difficult to get product on the brush however it was really easy to blend out on the face.  Overall I didn’t notice much difference in terms of the contour, but I think the shade was still a tad light for me. I think if you have fairer skin the Light kit would be perfect! However the Banana shade did an awesome job with highlighting my face, I definitely looked more awake. I was also concerned my makeup might not last well since I don’t usually use cream products however I had no issues. I think it was because I then layered powder and bronzer on top. Overall really impressed with the quality and think the palette is worth the money. Anastasia Beverly Hills is available online and Sephora Australia.
