The Kardashian sisters have some seriously sculpted faces, and while we can’t knock their natural beauty, we’re guessing they get a little help from their makeup bags to get cheekbones that high and jawlines that chiselled. Fact: those girls can contour. We’re guessing years of practice and professional guidance didn’t hurt. For those of us who don’t have the industry’s best artists at our disposal, contouring can be a tad bit tricky. Until now, that is, thanks to a whole new category of products designed to make contouring a breeze. Flip through to see the best!
Everything you need in one dual-ended stick. Choose from four different shades, apply the dark end to areas you want to define, apply the lighter shade to areas you wish to highlight, blend, and go!
Consider this kit paint-by-numbers for your face. The set comes with everything you need: a contour color, a highlight color, bronzer, an angled brush, and—best of all—a cheat sheet detailing where to apply each shade.
With a name like The Sculptor Contouring Face Slenderizer, you know this product means business. The matte crayon glides on effortlessly, and is slim enough to tote around in your handbag.
Sonia Kashuk Chic Luminosity Highlighter Stick ($11) in Persian Sunset
This is the gateway contour stick, perfect for when you’re not ready to go full-blown Kardashian, it’s a little lighter than others and has a bit of shimmer. Use it on your cheekbones for a lifted effect.
Compact with blendable formulas and universally flattering pigments—it’s the sculpting and highlighting duo that puts all others to shame. It combines two of Kevyn Aucoin’s star products (The Sculpting Powder and Celestial Powder), but in velvety cream formulas you can apply with your fingers.
