Even several years ago contouring was a pro thing but now everyone does it. It seems like contouring is now such an essential, as mascara, or we are getting there.
In the past it was hard to find a good product, as often they were too orange, too muddy etc. But now, with such a competition, the brands stepped up their game, so finding a suitable shade and formula shouldn’t be a problem.
If you are still not contouring (now it sounds like a sect, ha!), SS 15 is a perfect time to start, as there are tonnes of new releases. I have already mentioned Kat Von D, BECCA and Laura Mercier. By the way, if you are not ready to spend a lot on this step – Jane shares about the new Chiseled palette from Barry M here.
