Get the Sculpted look: Sleek Contour Kit

Sleek MakeUp Contour Kit in "Light" RRP £6.49

A sculpted face is often seen as a sign of beauty, defined cheekbones being sought after predominantly in more recent times following the leadership of such celebrities as Kim Kardashian. Yet, only now am I starting to see how beautifully a small amount of shading and highlighting can define and enhance your natural features.

Sleek MakeUp has beeen a well loved brand in the Beauty Community for years, so I've been itching to get my hands on their Contour Kit for a long time now, as it is one of their bestselling and most well known products. I chose the shade Light, as I have Fair skin, however they also cater for Medium and Dark skin, all of which are very flattering.

Left: Pressed Contouring Powder. Right: Highlighter.

The Pressed Contouring Powder is a soft matte Brown, which provides a subtle warmth to the skin that is very buildable, allowing your contour to be as subtle or as prominant as you wish. I myself prefer a subtle contour, which I achieve by taking an Angled Contour Brush and lightly sweeping the powder in the hollows of my cheekbones and around the edges of my temple, blending any harsh lines out. As you may have spotted in the pictures, I have somehow already managed to make a dent in the powder with my nail, but never mind, it is still only a small dent in the amount of product given! (Note to self: cut nails).

While the Pressed Powder is very good, the Highlighter by far steals the show with its amazing pigmentation which reflects light to highlight all your best features. It gives a luminosity to your skin which looks both healthy and flawless. By dusting it on the high points of your cheekbones, down the centre of the nose and under the eyebrows, it accentuates your natural beauty.

The matte, Black packaging maintains the sleek, classy and sophisticated look that the brand go for, and has a lovely smooth texture to the outside which makes it very tactile. More than this, it is also a perfect pocket size for handbags or make up bags!

So if you are looking to achieve the sculpted look, then I could not recommend Sleek Contour Kit more. Not only is it affordable, but the quality of the product lives up to all the great things that are said about it.

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!
