Contour For The Pale Girl

Saturday, 19 April 2014

 There was a time when I would hear the word contour and think that product just isn't for me. I assumed that contour meant orange bronzer, which terrified me as a pale girl. However, I've since being enlightened on the world of contour and what options are out their for me. Here are some of my favourite products I think are amazing for those of us with fair skin.

My newest acquisition and current obsession is a product that many fair skin girls hold in high regard, The Body Shop Honey Bronzer in 01. This product is perfect for pale girls. It is very light and gives great contour while also warming up the face in a subtle way. There is no fear of orange with this bronzer and they have four shades in the range. At 20, it is quite pricey but I think well worth it.

Illamasqua are an amazing brand for catering to all skin types and they managed to create a great contour for pale girls with the Cream Pigment in the shade Hollow. Priced at €20, it is a great product to give amazing contour without adding any bronze colour. It looks very natural on the face and it is one of my go to make-up items for a night out.

The Bourjois Bronzing Primer is a product I initially looked at and said no way will that work on my face but amazingly it does. It is an affordable €13.99 and when applied sparingly onto the cheeks and temples under foundation, it looks so natural and just gives a natural shape to the face. 

Bare with me on this final product. It is the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Permanent Taupe and I first bought this as an eye shadow but disliked the colour so it was left gathering dust in the back of my make-up collection. However, one day I was watching a YouTube video and in the comments section there was a suggestion for pale girls to use this as a contour and astonishingly it worked. it looks similar on the skin to Illamasqua Hollow. although, must be used much more sparingly. And for only €10, it's a great little beauty cheat.

Has anyone got any other suggestions for contour products for pale skins? Please let me know.
