The 4 Contouring And Highlighting Products Irish Bloggers Swear By

Love to contour? You can sculpt like a pro with these contouring kits, approved by Pippa O'Connor, SoSueMe & Co.

SoSueMe Contouring

Smashbox Step-by-Step Contour Kit

As recommended by So Sue Me’s Suzanne Jackson this contour kit has three powder shades in one. Suzanne says this one is great if you’re after “a deep contoured look that will really sculpt your face.” We’re sold.

Smashbox Step By Step Contour

Smashbox contour kit, €44

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze And Glow

Blonde bombshell Rosanna Davison is a fan of this palette and claims it gives a gorgeous glow to your skin and makes you look more awake. Priced at €65, it may be a little on the expensive side, but if it gives us a Rosanna-worthy glow, we reckon it’s worth it.

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze

Filmstar bronze and glow, €65

MAC Soft And Gentle Mineralise Skinfinish

Blogger Rosie Connolly is a fan of this stunning highlighter from MAC. Why? The powder glides onto your skin leaving you with a dewy glow when brushed onto the cheekbones, nose, and forehead. It’s also a fave of Pippa O’Connor’s, FYI.

MAC Soft and Gentle

MAC Soft and Gentle Minarlise Skinfinish, €31

Bobbi Brown Matte Bronzer

Another one used by blogger and model Pippa, this is the ideal contouring powder. Pippa uses the medium shade but there are seven others to choose from, meaning you’ll find the perfect match for your skin tone.

    I have the smashbox contour kit and the mac soft & gentle: i adore the MAC as a highlighter and will definitely be repurchasing. I dont like the smashbox- the highlighter is lovely buy takes quite a lot of product to actually show. the bronzer is a lovely shade however the ‘contour’ shade, the darkest one you can see above, doesn’t blend well with foundations and also has too much of a grey tone so can appear dark and dirty. The Sleek Contour Kit as seen in the picture is a great little product for budget buys!
