Cruelty Free Contours and Bronzers That I Basically Live In

I don’t have a lot of contours I reach for, as I tend to use bronzers sometimes as contours. Which is why I’m combining the two products together. Granted one is generally a matte powder or cream, while the other is a shimmer. But depending on my mood, I just go back and forth with that. So what contours/bronzers do I live in?

tarte Pretty Paintbox Collector’s Makeup Case Swatches and First Impression

Something that I haven’t gotten in a while is a good new set of eyeshadows. And my favorite brand of eyeshadows is tarte, they were the first non-drug store eyeshadow I ever tried and continues to stay on my favorites every day. So when I saw there was a paintbox collector’s case at Sephora with 24 eyeshadows, a blush, a highlighter, a bronzer, a contour, a mascara, a eyeliner, and a gloss I just had to get it. The entire set was $59 but is valued at $418. So yes, it’s a bit up there but you get a lot in the case so it is totally worth the price.

Though I would probably never do this myself as I don’t see the point in spending time contouring my arms, back, legs, or abdomen granted you do look slightly more tone doing so. And this whole trend can basically be blamed on Kim Kardashian, granted it’s been around for a lot longer than that. The concept is to highlight areas you want to make bigger and darken areas you want to appear smaller. Think about the Lion King in a way for contouring: everywhere the light touches you highlight, and where there are shadows you contour. You can use this same technique to change your facial features to an extent by contouring in different places than you normally would.

Pink for Spring Makeup Tutorial

I haven’t done a proper makeup tutorial for a while and I thought with the season changing to Spring, I would create one of my favorite looks for the season which is everything pink or taupe. I decided to try something different though which is a show and tell version of a makeup tutorial which I saw Zoella do on her YouTube Channel. And thought it would work better then forgetting to mention half the…
