Makeup Revolution Ultra Contour Palette


My love for make-up may have turned into a bit of an addiction lately. This has not been helped by the fabulous promotions Make-up Revolutions have been offering. I took the opportunity, however, and one of the things I picked up was their new Ultra Contour palette. I've never ventured into the world of contouring, but I was rather interested to give it a go and to see if I could master the professional look others seemed to get from it.

Contouring is a technique that gives shape to an area of the face by enhancing the facial structure. It is achieved by subtly highlighting and creating shadows through make up. You can begin contouring by:

  • Using an angled contour/blusher brush, lightly sweeping your dark Matte Powder in the hollow under your cheekbone, starting from the hair line moving diagonally under the apple. Make sure to keep strokes firm to blend into place.
  • Also brush around the hairline, each side of your nose and under your jawline to slim and add definition. 
  • Next, a light shade should be used above the contour line. These should be applied to the centre of the nose, the forehead, the arch of the eyebrow, above the apples of your cheeks, the chin and on your cupids bow. This will highlight where the light would naturally hit your face and ensure a healthy glow.

The Ultra Contour Palette comes presented in a sleek black palette with a large mirror covering the entire of the inside lid. It has 8 powders, three matte contour shade, three highlighter shades and two baked highlighters for illumination.
The three highlighter shades at the top of the palette start with a light pink. This shade is great for not only brightening the eyes but also for masking any dark circles. The Yellow evens out skin tone, masks purple or blue veins/bruises and also helps brighten dark under eye circles. The last is a shimmering neutral shade, this is suitable for most skin types, as well as highlighting the cheekbones it can also cover mild blemishes.

The Contour shades start with the darkest matte, with warm undertones, this would be perfect for those with golden, olive or yellow skin tones. The second is the lightest of these and has a grey undertone that would complement cool and pale skin tones. The third has a red undertone which adds a natural sun kissed look.

The two merged baked highlighters are delicate and stunning. Both shades could be used on a wide range of skin tones and would be perfect for strobing. The top colour has a cool undertone and comes out a shimmering white. The bottom has a warm undertone and when applied looks golden. Both are shimmery and would make your skin appear glowing and illuminated.

I love this pallet, it has been the perfect introduction to Contouring. It has a wide variety of shades that would suit a range of skin tones. Each powder is highly pigmented which not only means a little goes a long way but it is also lovely to blend.

I have been so impressed with the Makeup Revolutions products that I have and highly recommend trying this palette. Not only do they offer great quality products, with a fabulous variety of colour but also the prices are shockingly affordable. You can purchase this item for £8.00 on the Makeup Revolutions Website.

Thank you for reading my blog, have you tried any Makeup Revolutions products and what are your favourites?
