Angela Lanter, Hello Gorgeous! blogger, YouTube star and wife of actor Matt Lanter: “When it comes to makeup, there are a few things that stand out to me for a truly beautiful look: A perfectly pink pout, a sexy smokey eye, brows on point — you know what I’m talking about! However, the one thing that always catches my eye without fail is a gorgeous highlight and contour (thanks Kim Kardashian for bringing this trend front and center!). I love perfecting my contouring skills on the regular, and believe me, I’ve tried many, many products in an attempt to achieve that perfectly sculpted face. I have to say, nothing does it quite like the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit.

This contour kit is a collection of six shades of powder that make it possible to carve out those cheekbones and help change the appearance and shape of your nose. Hands down, my favorite shade is the banana powder. It works miracles to set your under-eye concealer while, at the same time, camouflaging the purple undertones in your dark circles. I also love the medium shade of contour. It can perfectly shadow under your lower lip, creating the illusion of a larger pout. By the way, did I mention how perfectly matte the contour powders are? To top it all off, Miss Anastasia even managed to make the perfect highlighter, which is also included in the kit and compliments the contour shades beautifully.

If you haven’t taken the plunge into the wonderful world of highlighting and contouring, this kit is the best way to get your feet wet. Oh, and don’t be afraid to make a mistake. Just remember that there’s nothing you can do that can’t be blended out!
