This is juuuust a wee bit behind schedule :)  The week before last, I did a post on MAC Shape and Sculpt powders because  I had recently acquired 2 shaping powders and one sculpting.  You can see that post by clicking here.  I was supposed to follow up that post with a post showing how they work…and then something weird happened with my photo editor and I moved on.  But when I recently wrote an article about the importance of highlighting and contouring–I had to come back on here with a before and after. Here are the before and after photos…same exposure, spot and everything:


This was my “I’m going to the grocery store look” so I went a little lighter on the contouring but doesn’t a little highlighting and contouring go a long way?  It makes such a difference. I love, love, love the sculpting powder.  I know I have done a post like this before but just to clarify I contoured on either side of my nose, underneath my cheekbones, down my jawline and chin and around my hairline.  Then I put a highlight on the top of my cheeks (a bit over my blush) and down my nose.  The best thing about the sculpting powder–no shimmer!  So you can sculpt freely without looking like a shimmer explosion.

  1. You did an amazing job capturing how much a little highlighting and contouring can do for a person. I feel like my face isn’t complete until I highlight and contour. I love.how you said this was your ” I’m going to the grocery store look”. I am all about doing my makeup all the time too so this is somewhat like my grocery face. Haha. Great job though. You’re beautiful.
