Contouring your face doesn’t have to be scary—or require the skill of a makeup artist. You just need the right products to get that subtle, natural-looking sculpt. The easiest way to take on the technique? A simple multi-shade palette. Just ask our customers! They swear by these 5 contour palettes to add definition without looking unnatural.
Sleek MakeUP Face Form, P875
Chenyl, 30, Medium Skin: “If you’re looking for a good face palette that’s perfect for traveling, consider this one by Sleek. I have the one in Fair. The blush is beautiful and is wildly reminiscent of NARS Orgasm, but with less chunky glitter. The highlight shade is a white gold color that gave my NC 35 skin a subtle glow. The contour shade is very natural and is great if you like your contour subdued. Staying power is around 5-6 hours on my combi skin before it starts to fade.”
W7 Shape Your Face, P599
Beatrice, 23, Medium Skin: “I’ve been using it for 2 months now (everyday). Its texture is buttery smooth and not powdery. I really like this product because it blends easily and for the quality, it’s really affordable. Also, the quality of the free brush is not bad either. This is a must-have for makeup beginners who are new to contouring. Great for everyday makeup.”
PRO STUDIO Contour Palette, now on sale at P690
Jonalyn, 26, Medium Skin: “Wow this is what I need! With this contour palette from Pro Studio, I can enhance my natural beauty with the use of contouring and highlighting. One of the shades matches my skin tone so well that I use it as a powder and the others as bronzer and blush. I also use it on my nose for an instant nose lift. The palette blends seamlessly on my face with a natural matte finish. It’s worth buying.”
Suesh Contour & Highlighting Palette, now on sale at P1,036 (limited time only)
Jane, 39, Fair Skin: “I love how big the pots are, you get a lot of product compared to what you actually paid for. I use the middle color to warm up my face and give definition to my cheekbones. Used the lightest one to highlight my cheekbones and nose bridge. I find the last shade dark for my face, so I used it for my eyebrows instead and it did very well. Stayed all day.”
DETAIL Contour and Blush, P499
Samantha, 22, Medium Skin: “First of all, you get pretty big pans for its price. Both contour shades are usable and I don’t need to dig my brush in there to get color on my face. In fact, I barely have to touch the product with my brush and it does the job. The blushes are so pretty and both of them are blush colors that I use. The bronzer is very blendable and complements my skin very well. The highlighter is subtle but gives you a “glowing-from-within” look and it is so beautiful. There is not a single pan of product there that I could not use! Bravo Detail!”
