As someone who is still intimidated by contouring, I love products that make it easy – like the new Maybelline Face Studio Master Contour Palette. It covers all the bases… highlight, blush, and contour. It’s available in 2 shades – the one that suits my skintone is the Light to Medium, but it is also available in Medium to Deep.

The highlight shade is quite subtle, which is wonderful for when you just want a bit of a glow. The blush is a beautiful light pink shade with a hint of shimmer that builds nicely and blends beautifully. The contour shade can be applied subtly, or built up for a more intense contour – I prefer to keep it light, and find that just a swipe with the brush and a bit of blending works for me.
It does come with a brush which is perfect for placing the contour shade. I find it a bit too small for blush, but if I was traveling and didn’t want to bring a lot of brushes with me it would work. I reach for this a lot because it’s easier than digging through to find multiple products in the morning. If you are looking for a foolproof cheek palette, definitely check this out!
