NYC Sun 2 Sun Bronzing Powder

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.


NYX Wonder Stick

NYX Wonder Stick If cream contour is more your thing, this is the perfect little tool for you. It’s double-ended with both shades that you need, making it so handy. It’s great for travel or just when you don’t have time to do your makeup and you’re running out the door. I especially love this one because it comes with handy instructions for beginning contour girls!


Sonia Kashuk Chic Defining Contour Stick

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.


Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation

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.


Revlon Highlighting Palette

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.


NYX Highlight and Contour Pro Palette

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.


Physician’s Formula Shimmer Strips

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.

Don't use shimmer for contouring! It defeats the purpose because the shimmer makes the area stand out rather than disappear like you're trying to make it!

When you contour you use a cool toned powder to mimic a shadow. You don't use bronzer in your cheek hallos or shimmer. Bronzer is meaning for adding warmth. Lighter shimmer products are highlighters

The NYX contouring palette and Wonder Stick are really great. I have both and I love them. The Wonder Stick makes cream contouring a breeze!

correction Rommel does not have a wide shade selection. If u have even the slightest tan there is no foundation option for u.

I take an hour to do my make up and I have tried some of these and with them I only take 45 mins.

I've tried some of these and they really are great Easy if you're just beginning or if you don't have a lot of time
