Hi guys, Jen here.
Ive been dying to get my hands on this new palette since i heard it was coming out! And now its here and i have to say i really like it.
Ive been using a darker fluid foundation up until now to do my contouring on my face and then finishing off with the illuminator powder to add the glow. But having everything i need in handy palette is fantastic and actually so much better as it is intended for the purpose of contouring and highlighting so does it perfectly.
So its the same size as the HD Brows Eye & Brow palette, and it contains two creams, one for contouring and one for highlighting. There is also a lovely mirror which is big enough to see both sides of your face! Very useful! It doesn’t contain any brushes though but as most of you already own the HD Foundation brush and stipple brush that we featured in one of our videos earlier this year, you can just go ahead and use those. Thats what i’ve used. They work great with these creams.
So just like i did when i did the fluid foundation video, i have applied my foundation base and then using the foundation brush again I’m going in with the dark contour creme from the palette and applying it to the areas i want to add depth to. So underneath my cheek bone, along my jawline and a little across my temples and sides of my nose. It looks a little crazy at first, quite like war paint!
But don’t be scared of it, put plenty on so that you can blend it out and still see its doing something, too little will probably mean you’ll blend it all back off again! And i blend it using the Stipple brush, small circular motions, keeping it where i need it but making sure theres no obvious lines. Then to add a subtle glow I’ve applied the highlighting cream to the top of my cheeks and its really adding a healthy glow to my skin.
Its super easy to do, it just takes a couple of goes to work out how you like to contour your face and to ensure its well blended. Ive done it very lightly here, for a subtle day look but for the evening you may want to be a little more daring with your contouring and really sculpt the face.
Then finish off the rest of your look , using your HD Mascara, a little HD blusher and of course your HD brow palette. Voila!
