For Part Two of my contour post, I want to focus on the powder contour products. You can use it alone or combine it with your cream contouring to set it. On days that I need a quick contour effect I use it alone and when I’m really trying to glam it up I use both. Does it look heavy when you use both? The key is, blending. Blending is your friend! But even then choosing the right shades for a day time and nighttime look really help. Here are some powder contour products that are totally affordable and easy to use!

There are tons of palettes out on the market now, and I love the easy to travel with contour duo palettes. They have your basic highlight and lowlight combo that you need. I love my Nars powder contour duo though it’s a little more red toned than I like, and I also enjoy using my Sleek Makeup contour duo as well, which is super affordable!
SPLURGE: Nars Contour Blush, $42; Becca Lowlight/Highlight Perfecting Palette, $42. BARGAIN: Lorac Travel Size TANtalizer Highlighter and Matte Bronzer Duo, $13. STEAL: Sleek Makeup Face Contour Kit, $10
Again I’m obsessed with anything Anastasia Beverly Hills makes, so of course I own the original contour palette as well. But I don’t like to use it every day since it’s kind of pricey. The refills are only $14, but if you’re using daily, that can add up a bit. There are some great multi-shade, powder contour palettes that are being sold for under $25 and very easy to use.
SPLURGE: Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette, $46; Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit, $40. BARGAIN: NYX Cosmetics Highlight and Contour Pro Palette, $25; Ulta Cosmetics Contour Kit, $18. STEAL: Palladio Mosaics in Sunkissed, $8.
