There’s one trend that everyone’s talking about at the moment and that’s ‘CONTOURING’. If you haven’t already heard, it’s a make-up artists secret where you use light and dark shades of make up to sculpt your face, making the most of your best features and disguising any flaws. 

 

Kim Kardashian is a big fan and after seeing her working her contouring on Instagram I knew I had to give this new craze a try – after all she is the selfiequeen!

 

The big news is this insider secret is now available for beauty lovers like us through at home contouring kits.

 

In the last few months, I’ve really started to try some new things and I’ve started experimenting with my look. I tried a few products from different brands but they just weren’t right for me, no matter how much I tried I couldn’t get it right – it was time to call in my glorious makeup artist Mikey Phillips (@MAKEUPBYMIKEY) for some advice.

 

 

 

He suggested I take a look at a new brand he’d used on a photo-shoot recently, ICONIC LONDON – he was raving about their contour palettes so we set about giving it try and before I knew it I was getting an on the spot tutorial. The great thing about this product is it gives you a step by step guide on how to create perfect contouring at home.

I’m not going to lie, this probably is not an everyday look as it does take a bit of time, but for a night out or a special occasion, it’s well worth it. It will completely transform your face.

These palettes can be pricey and cost anything from £45-£70 but the Iconic London one is only £32.99, and it does actually suit every complexion, I loved the look so much that it is now a permanent fixture in my make-up bag. You can purchase online at www.iconiclondoninc.com and also follow them on instagram @iconic.london for loads of contouring tutorials.
