Contouring with an Eyeshadow;

Sunday, 19 April 2015


Hello Lovelies;

I love the idea of using products that aren't for their specific use - Using eyeshadow to not only highlight, but contour as well is something that works very well if you have the correct shade.

I use the Ingot Freedom System Matte eyeshadow in 390 (left shade)- This is a gorgeous light browny beige with a grey undertone which creates the perfect shadow - You can also use MAC Omega which is a bit more expensive, but it does come in packaging. The Ingot Pan alone costs £5.

I pick this over my Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting powder. Because it's a lighter tone it isn't as harsh against my fair skin and I don't have to blend it as much. I love that I can also use this duo day to day as a normal eyeshadow...As they were intended for. You can also use a contour for eyeshadow as well xD I did a post a while ago about the Naked Basic Palette and it's many uses - Naked2 was also the perfect contour shade and very similar to 390. NYX Taupe has always been mentioned as a lovely contour shade, but I've never got my hands on it to test it.


The brush I use to contour is Zoeva 105 Luxe Highlight brush...Yeah, it makes an amazing contour brush and is a dupe for the Charlotte Tilbury Contour Brush.

Do you contour?
What contour product do you use? What brush do you use?
Would you use an eyeshadow to contour?

  1. I did think about neutral eyeshadows for contouring, I've got to admit I've never actually tried it, but I want to! I've been looking at tips and techniques to do it, I think I should just give it a go!

    I really like your brush too, I may have to get myself a new one, mine is so old now haha! x

  2. The effect is really good - I never think of using products to do other jobs - but this looks great.

  3. I love Hoola as a contour colour, but using an eyeshadow like this is ingenious! I'm definitely going to give it a go!

    1. Hoola is a gorgeous shade! I'm a bit too pale for it to be used contouring though. Xx
