So I think it’s fair today that contouring isn’t going anywhere. I can’t even begin to count how many tutorials I’ve watched, listened to and attended, but it’s always felt a little high maintenance for me. I wake up super early, so I don’t really trust myself to play around with an absolute tonne of product.
So when Maybelline’s brand new Master Contour crayon popped through the door, I couldn’t help myself! It’s everything you need to create a Kardashian-esque look without the hundreds of products! Instead, it’s a super easy, all-in-one product which lets me apply then run out the door!
Using the Master Contour couldn’t be easier, and I love the fact that it’s a crayon formula. It feel like it just blends into skin flawlessly, leaving you looking believably sculpted. After applying my foundation like usual (at the moment I’m finishing off my Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua) I make a rather instagram-worthy kiss face and swipe a little of the bronzer shade in the hollows of my cheeks. I add a little to the outside of my nose, then to the sides of my jaw and forehead.
Then, using the light side, I focus the high points of my face – I swipe it down my nose, add a little to my forehead, and then sweep it along my cheekbones to the temples. Then, using a soft dense brush, I blend like my life depends on it! The formula of the Master Contour crayon is pretty much perfect – it disappears into skin, leaving me looking far more defined than when I started!
The colour on the darker side is definitely buildable, but it can also be blended out too; meaning that those with both light and medium skin tones will be able to enjoy the Master Contour crayon in light. It’s also available in a medium tone for richer skin colours. I also love the lasting-power of the crayon. Even after applying it first thing in the morning, I still look more defined in the evening.
