I went for a class with Sarah at Inglot in Mahon Point today and really enjoyed it. I decided to get her to give me some tips on the, ever daunting, topic of contouring and highlighting. She used their HD foundation (in 71) on me as a base and I have to say it gives incredible coverage but perhaps a little heavy for daytime wear for me.
The easiest way to show what she taught me on the topic of contouring is to show it in a series of steps – three in total – bronze, highlight and blush. The key to this entire process is to use tiny amounts of product and a light hand and to build up your product bit by bit until you’re happy with the look.
1. Bronze – I have a mixture of two contouring powders on me here – Inglot’s HD Sculpting Powder in 505 and 508 from their Freedom System. These were so nice I bought them both!
2. Highlighter – I would use my Mary Lou-Manizer for this usually.
3. Blush – Sarah used Inglot’s Face Blush in 24. Honestly the colour is so light I don’t think I would have ever picked this up but its perfect for adding another dimension, however subtle, when you’re contouring. I also bought this, I’m a sucker for a good blush!
