#aboutface

One of the best things about wearing makeup is contouring and highlighting. If you put on your makeup without contouring or highlighting, you may as well forget about forget putting makeup altogether. Contouring and highlighting gives you dimension. Without this technique, you will look flat and lifeless.

But with this classic makeup technique can makeup you more proportion and thinner if you wish! Contouring and highlighting doesn't necessarily need to look fake, you just have to find the right contouring kit, and learn how to blend.

This sculpting kit by Happy skin contains no silicone, but is loaded with Green Tea Extract that is rich in caffeine which is a powerful anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory. You know what that means! Caffeine reduce puffiness so you can count on this product to make you 10 pounds lighter.
I have never even heard of Neem Leaf before but this sculpting kit has it! It's a miracle ingredient which makes this product suitable for people with sensitive, oily and acne-prone skin. It also contains anti-fungal and anti-bacterial ingredients that helps clear out & prevent blackheads, whiteheads, and breakouts. It also hydrates while controlling excess shine. Now how's that for a multi-purpose product?
At first glance, you may think that the contouring powder may be too dark for fair skinned women (like me), but it suits my skin perfectly, and I am several notches higher than the average Filipina skin. It blended well on my skin without me looking muddy, or does it make me look like I have an orange streak on my face.
Swiping on my hand, you can see how pigmented these powders are. I had to swipe it several times though so you can see the real shades these powders have. They are actually more natural and less noticeable than this.
Now applying the contouring powder directly on my cheekbones (and not under it!), you can see how it has a golden undertone making it look natural. It actually has a golden-beige undertone which makes my skin look naturally chiseled.
I didn't blend it that much because I wanted to show you the real color it has. If I blended it real well and using less product, you will hardly see it in photos, but looks so natural in person. I think Happy Skin has done it again. I love how their products are carefully thought of and how thorough they do some testing before actually coming out with the product. I am happy and proud to be recommending this product.
I also used the contouring powder on the sides of my nose so you will be able to see a hint of it. With the highlighter though, I would have preferred it more on the golden light yellow side rather than having a white undertone. I feel that it casts a slightly, almost too white reflection on flash photography.

Although it still looks very natural in person, it's a little too white for me. I wish for a more skin-tone shade, or a more translucent finish. The iridescent particles should be enough to bounce some light to highlight the area. No need for the white pigment to make the highlight more noticeable.
In spite of the white highlighter, I still loved this sculpting kit because it has a lot of pros. Not to mention, the very impressive packaging and ingredients! That's why it's pretty much one of the best sculpting kits I have tried in my entire makeup career.
