Contouring On A Budget

Despite taking up half of my routine, I contour daily. Although I own my fair share of contouring products, after trawling the aisles of Boots I realised there weren't many high quality, high street products on the market. Contouring on a budget can be difficult, but I have put together three products that deliver a natural, everyday contour in minutes and without breaking the bank. 

First up is concealer and when I'm contouring I always take my concealer one shade lighter than my skin tone to highlight and brighten my complexion. To reduce puffiness and the appearance of dark circles I always reach for the Maybelline Eye Eraser Concealer - Light to add a subtle radiance and disguise any shadows. If I'm after a sharp, strong contour then I tend to apply this under my eyes, along my chin and below my contour, but if I'm after a natural look I dab this along any red or blue areas to conceal. 

Although contouring is now everywhere on the high street, cream contours are still hard to come by. The Topshop Contour Cream in Sweep is an affordable option which sculpts and defines your cheekbones without breaking the bank. It gives a soft, matte finish which looks natural in all lights, whilst remaining buildable. 

For highlighter, the Sleek Solstice Palette ticks all the right boxes. This versatile quad is made up of an array of powder and cream formulas; with matte and shimmer finishes that brighten up the inner corner of the eye, define cheekbones and emphasise on your cupids bow. 

What is your favourite budget contouring product?
