As the make up artist Kevyn Aucoin once said "A face is like a canvas, and you can transform your look through the power of make up in any shape or form." - I'm still working on it.
I purchased the No'33 palette.
The compact case and refill are sold separately
- Highlight Colour for the nose;
- Top Cheek shade & used to define the eyes and on the top half of the T.Zone;
- Blusher Shade;
- A nuance shade used under the cheekbones/around the hairline/jawline;
- A blending colour for (3) and (4)
Overall it's not a bad purchase, and I'm taking quite a liking to the colours, however when I'm on the go' especially in the morning's I just don't have the time to contour every section of my face. So I've been using the No'4 section of the compact more than the rest of the shades.
The downfall for me is having to use their brush as I find it difficult to blend, so I tried using my own stippling brush but the difficulty is picking up the colour, as the sections are so small. Does anyone else have this problem??
So when I'm now on the go, I've resorted to using my MAC Mineralize skinfinish Natural as a contour shade. This was recommended to me by Ling my Fab make up artist matey. The MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is actually a matte low coverage face powder used to set the foundation (they call it matte, but I can still see slight shimmers when applied).
If you choose a shade darker than your regular skin tone, it works just as well as a natural contourer or even a bronzer, so it's worth trying if you can't be bothered with a palette full of colours.
