All four shades of Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Pro Series Contour Cream Kit contain six sheer-yet-pigmented sculpting and highlighting creams, to support (or detract from) your features and grant a more ‘3D’ effect. Wonderfully dewy, these subtle skin-enhancers can also be worn on my own, or beneath Anastasia’s corresponding contour powders, to ‘set’ and intensify the effect (ideal after dark, in a candlelight setting). For contouring newbies, the premise is to create depth by ‘colouring in’ shadows, then brightening the ‘high points’ of your face where light would naturally strike – cheeks, chin, forehead and bridge of the nose. Celebrities rely heavily on contouring to lend a hand them look younger, leaner and more ‘cheek-boned’ in photographs (even if being bleached by a blanket of camera flashes); just take a look at J-Lo, Angelina, J-Law and Kim-K to see what a difference just a bit bit of artful contour application can achieve – defining, streamlining and creating the illusion of perfect symmetry. Get practising girls, that is one craze that is indubitably here to stay.
