1 NYC Sun 2 Sun Bronzing Powder
One of the most important parts of contouring is having one dark bronze and one that could be considered more of a highlight. That’s exactly what you get from the two halves of this bronzing powder. NYC always has great bronzers too, so you’re sure to be in good hands if you try this drugstore bronzer duo on for size.

3 Sonia Kashuk Chic Defining Contour Stick
This Sonia Kashuk contour stick is very similar, but rather than it act as an all-in-one, double-ended stick, it’s only one-sided. This does require other powders or creams, but it’s so small and compact that you really won’t care. This tiny, little stick is perfect to bring with you for touch-ups in even your smallest purse.
4 Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation
This is the only foundation that I will use when I’m contouring my face. It stays put so well, it matches with my skin tone nicely (and they have a lot of shades so you’ll find yours as well), it evens out the redness in my skin tone, and the matte finish makes contouring a breeze. If you’re looking for foundation for the perfect contour, this is it.
5 Revlon Highlighting Palette
It’s not very often that you find an entire highlighting and contour kit in a single drugstore palette, but this Revlon palette has defeated all odds and come out on top. I love that it’s still compact despite the fact that it’s a palette. I also love that it comes in three different shades to choose from. My personal favorite is Peach Glow, because it gives the most options for contouring.
6 NYX Highlight and Contour Pro Palette
While you need to be a little more skilled in contouring to handle this palette, don’t be fooled. Just because it’s a little more complicated than your average drugstore makeup doesn’t mean that it has the price tag of a palette from Sephora. It’s still only a few bucks compared to Sephora, and it will be the perfect contour palette for you, especially for the price.
7 Physician’s Formula Shimmer Strips
This Physician’s Formula bronzer has won so many awards that you wouldn’t believe it. It features nearly every shade you could possibly need for a good contour, and it provides a little bit of shimmer for a healthy glow. If you’re looking for a lot of options for a low price, try this Physician’s Formula powder on for size.
