Getting Used to Contour 

I’m not one for contouring…

The first ever bronzer/ contour (I know they are two separate things) I owned was the too faced chocolate soleil bronzer in milk chocolate back when it was the old packaging. I loved it, it smelled like chocolate, therefore I had to have it for Christmas.

I was a sophomore in high school at the time, pretty new to makeup in general. I didn’t really know how to use it, so it wasn’t something I clung to in my everyday makeup routine and soon fell out completely.

Bronzer is the closest thing I’ve ever gotten to contouring or “tanning” my face. Definitely isn’t a necessity for me though.

But, one night a couple months ago I saw Dani Mansutti using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit in a YouTube video and I thought “what is that gorgeous palette?” Especially the banana shade which to my hearts content is actually called “banana.” Score.

So, I did my research, found it on Sephora, picked it up at the shop, and since then I have been pretty in love with this thing.

From left to right: Vanilla, Banana, and Sand
From left to right: Java, Fawn, and Havana

Vanilla: can be used as a powder, highlight, eyeshadow

Banana: a highlighting powder, especially good for under the eyes to cancel dark circles

Sand: a highlighting powder

Java: a warm mocha contour

Fawn: light brown contour

Havana: a warm red based contour

All of the shades are highly pigmented. It’s simply amazing.

In my opinion it is worth the $40 because it has many different uses besides contouring.

This palette’s shades can definitely be used as eyeshadow too.

I just love this thing, let me know what you think of it! 🙂

Love,

Nat 💖

Mini Sephora Haul 

So I went to Sephora for about 10 minutes and ended up with a few things I thought I would show you 🙂 

1. First aid beauty ultra repair cream (I use this as my face moisturizer, decided to buy another for backup)2. Benefit’s They’re real mascara 

This is the first ever high end mascara I bought and I decided I wanted to re-fall in love with it 

3. Too faced melted Berry liquid lipstick 

I’ve been wanting this forever and never picked it up, so today was the day I threw all caution to the wind. Safe to say, I love it.
