Even a makeup obsessed Starlet like myself has a few techniques they aren’t comfortable with. For me, cream contour ranks on the list just below false eye lashes. While I’m still trying to build up the courage to attempt falsies again (my past attempts were epic fails despite all the advice and tutorials I’ve watched), I decided to give cream contour a try.

I will admit that I’ve played with cream contour products before. Mostly just a quick swipe or swatch, but never a full face of contour. I decided I needed to get over my fear and just go for it… after all, it’s makeup, it will always wash off.
Since I was just playing around with the technique, I decided to skip the fancy filming set up and just set up the camera on my makeup table. I hope you enjoy the laid back approach.
So here’s how my cream contour experiment went…

Final Thoughts: Since filming the video I have used the cream contour a few more times and I’m really liking it, especially for Spring/Summer. I’m not as big a fan of the highlighter. I have played with using a lighter shade of concealer (my Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Chantilly) in place of the highlighter and I really like the effect. I’m planning to try it with my Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer in Brightener as well.
Have you tried cream contour before? Do you like cream or powder contour better? Do you have any favorite cream contour products?
Are there any makeup techniques that you’re scared to try? Any that you’ve tried by just can’t see to master?
