Hey Readers!
One of the best makeup tricks I know is contouring and highlighting. It adds dimension and brightens your overall appearance, not to mention it's a handy trick to get those chiseled cheekbones we all lust over.
What's even better is when you have a kit that has 2 in 1. It's best for travel purposes, it's practical and totally worth it if you can get your hands on a good quality kit! Without spending more than $20, you can get your hands on the Australis Contouring & Highlighting Kit. This comes with 6 shades to get you looking fabulous and flawless and will help you master the technique.

My experience has been great, to say the least. With a light hand I am able to apply my suited contour shade and am able to blend it easily creating a subtle definition to the natural curves of my face. For me, I generally use the middle contour shade as that works for my skin tone best. These shades are highly pigmented so a very minimal amount is required. Having highly pigmented shades, it will make sure you have this palette for a long time to come, as you'll be using the bare minimum!

My absolute favourite highlight shade is the yellow tone in the kit. This is absolutely PERFECT for highlighting underneath your eyes in that V shape, adding a highlight on the bridge of your nose, Cupid's bow and also using it underneath your contoured cheeks to make the line seamless and into a natural transition. This shade works wonders and airbrushes your face! You will be surprised how flawless your skin will look using this shade. For that subtle glow above the cheekbone, apply the shimmer shade or the matte cream shade and voila! 

My two favourite makeup brushes to use to apply and blend are the Real Techniques Contour and Buffing brushes!

You can get your hands on these from the Australis website, Priceline, Big W and Kmart.
