NYX Wonder Stick Contour
Happy #beautytiptuesday my beautiful friends!! Every Tuesday I will be sharing a beauty tip, tutorial, or product review with y'all! Thanks so, so much for all the love and support, I love sharing these tips with you guys!
We did our first family photoshoot with our six month old and it was seriously so much fun, I can't wait to see our photos! However, I've been feeling a little self conscious about the baby weight I haven't done a damn thing to lose, plus Quarantine... so I wanted to make sure to add contour to my face for our photos.
Here's my tutorial, super great for beginners or mamas in a hurry!
I have been wanting to try the #NYX Professional Makeup Wonder Stick Concealer and contour stick. All of the reviews I read were kind of in the middle somewhere, not horrible but not amazing. The stick comes in Light, Medium, Deep, and Universal shades, with one end a highlight and the other a contour shade. To me it seems like a good one to have on-the-go or as a quick fix, but maybe not a full replacement for contouring.
How to contour with the WONDER STICK:
I'm using the Medium/Tan shade, and already applied foundation first.
Using the darker contour end, I shade in where I want a slim effect.
Start by lining under your cheekbones, make a "kissy face" to make it easier. Then outline the temples/forehead, and jaw bone.
I also contour my nose drawing lines down the sides of the bridge, but you don't have to.
Next, grab the lighter highlight color. You'll place this where you want a highlight effect, usually the higher points of the face.
Highlight the chin, forehead, bridge of nose. I also apply this under my eyes for dark circle coverage.
Wet a beauty blender or sponge, and start blending. Dab, dab, dab! Seriously keep blending, and then blend some more!
I also add a highlight powder and bronzer, but you don't have to!
Set with powder!
I actually loved this contour stick!! The shades gave a natural contour and highlight and apply like a crayon, it's very smooth and creamy. Great for beginners!
