Easy contouring and highlighting with a stick from Clinique, Nudestix and Tarte!

You'd have to be living under a rock not to know that the big thing in beauty these days is contouring! The whole process can seems daunting, especially with some of the kits having half a dozen different contouring shades sure can make it seem complicated! So keep things simple and stick to one contouring shade and one highlighting shade and you'll be saying hello to the cheekbones you never knew you had in no time!

Don't know where to start? Just suck in your cheeks - a swipe of contouring goes in the hallow that appears underneath, a bit of highlighting goes on top of the cheeks and then just blend away! Fingers are the best tool for this, the heat from your skin will warm the cream and help it blend smoothly.

Here are a few of the latest and greatest in stick contouring and highlighting:

Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Contour and Sculpting Highlight - $24 - offers smooth, dewy and mistake application in stick form - contours by creating enhanced depth and definition while the highlight contains pearlized, light-reflecting pigments to add a luminous sheen that makes features appear more prominent in the prettiest of ways.

Available now at Clinique counters across Canada.
Nudestix Sculpting Pencil - $28 - in 2 shade duos: Contour - medium/Highlight - light and Contour - deep/Highlight - medium - a dual-ended, matte cream sculpting pencil that provides long-wearing, blendable coverage in shades that are ideal for highlighting and contouring features and infused with skin-conditioning and moisturizing ingredients like shea butter and vitamin E. The double ended pencil makes it easy to contour and highlight in one go - accentuating your best features for a barely-there, fresh-faced look with a natural finish that evens the look of your skintone.

Available now at Sephora, sephora.ca, Space NK and Urban Outfitters.
Tarte The Sculptor Contouring Face Slenderizer - $29 - in 3 shades: Park Avenue Princess, Park Avenue Princess 2 - medium and Park Avenue Princess 3 - medium to tan - a contouring and sculpting stick with a lightweight, non-sticky colour that blends flawlessly into all skintones and highlights the face for a slimmer look and create the illusion of high, chiseled cheekbones in seconds - also great for slimming the neck, jawline, and nose.

Available exclusively at Sephora and sephora.ca.
