Smashbox Step-by-Step Contour Kit


Smashbox have released a deeper version of their Step-by-Step Contour Kit which includes three shades to contour, highlight and bronze. It is housed in a sleek black compact, with the Smashbox logo on the top and a nice sized mirror under the lid. The compact holds three nice sized powders, to contour, highlight and bronze the face with and also a step-by-step guide stickered on the inside of the mirror. The contour shade is a deep cool toned brown, this shade is very pigmented and a small amount goes a long way, but it is super easy to blend. The highlight shade is a peachy yellow shade, that’s slightly deeper than the usual powders I like to set my highlight with, but for deeper skin brown beauties this would be perfect. I’ve been mixing in a little Ben Nye Powder and I have the perfect daytime highlight powder to set my concealer with. The bronze shade is extremely orange, I personally like this, as I think orange tones are flattering on deeper skin tones, it can also be used as a blush. I do sometimes mix the contour and bronze shades together, on days when I’m short on time and need to bronze and contour in one step and be out of the door.

I would definitely recommend this product but you might want to check the appropriateness of all the shades for your skin tone. For my lighter skinned brown beauties you might want to check the shades in the original Contour Kit, I’ve not seen this in person, but it may be more appropriate for your skin tone.

Smashbox Step-by-Step Contour Kit is priced at £35.00.
