Yes, it's got a sticker on the back with a picture of a face that shows you where you can apply the colors. You can also find youtube videos online that cover highlighting and contouring with bronzer

Hi Heather1983,

This product does not come with instructions. Use the darkest shade as a contour shade right in the hollows of the cheekbones and around the hairline, use the medium shade as a blush right on the cheekbones and use the lightest shade as a highlight shade right underneath your brow bone and on the very top of the cheekbones.

I put my blush brush in a counter clockwise direction and sweep all the colors on the apples of my cheecks. If you want more bronze look, just use the two bronze colors. start at the forehead, and do a "c into a 3" on the outside part of the face.

the best way to apply this would be in sections, use the matte brown shade to contour the lighter shade for highlighting and the brighter color on the apples of your cheeks. We suggest the SEPHORA COLLECTION
Pro Contour Brush #74 to go along with this product.

The best way to find out is to google 'makeup contouring'. There are a lot of different ways to use it. What I usually do is apply the bronzer in a '3' shape along the outsides of my face - starting on the left most quarter of my forehead and swiping down to just before the center of my check and then down to the left most quarter of my jaw line. Same thing for right side. For the blush, I apply a small amount to my cheekbones. Then I put the bronzer on the left and ride sides of my nose, leaving a blank line in the center running down my nose where I fill in with the highlighting powder. Lastly, I put the highlighting powder under my eyes to the edge of my cheekbones and then a little bit below my eyebrows but above the creases.

The highlighter has shimmer, but I don't see any shimmer in the blush or bronzer. I have it in Sassy.

No it is not matte, the two lighter shades have shimmer while the more bronze shade has a satin finish.

answer 3
There is definitely shimmer in this product. When used all together (one brush swirled over the entire compact) it's more of a sheen than a shimmer. It's not glittery, but if you want a truly matte sculpting trio, then this is not it. A good alternative for a matte bronzer is Laura Mercier, who makes a truly matte baked bronzer but then you have to add a blush or luminizer separately.

Never contour with a shimmer bronze! You need a matte one such as Cargo Water Proof Matte Bronzer, Nars Laguna or Nars Casino work great also Too Faced Chocolate Soleil bronzer is matte too! Just don't get the Milk Chocolate since that one is too light for anyone lol. After you have contoured it is ok to use a shimmer highlighter and/or blush though!

Hello...I too am new to contouring, and I was really excited to get started. My skin is fair/medium...but mostly fair. I would use the Sassy color.... I highly recommend that you purchase the Sephora contouring brush set to get yourself use to contouring your face. I LOVE this palette...but I do find that I tend to use more highlighter than I think necessary....it seems a bit thin. However, the blush is great....as well as the bronzer. When I'm a bit more comfortable contouring, I'm going to move up into the cream pencils and try my hand at that....but for now, I'm super happy with this palette and would recommend it to anyone.

I am also a lighter skin tone and I purchased the sassy. I am extremely happy with all 3 products within the palette. Great color tone. I always apply lightly and gradually add more to increase the intensity. Highly recommend!!!

I am medium skin toned and I used the sweet. I think that would be good for you. I don't like anything that looks heavy and the sweet is very natural looking.

Hi there! I have fair-light skin as well and I got the Sweet trio. I love it and think the colours blend really nicely into the skin to add some glow and dimension, but nothing too pigmented to look cakey or very obvious. they're all great for everyday wear and you cal always swap a different bronzer or blush if you're looking for a more dramatic look.

My pick would be sassy. I think if the pink brightens the face up and makes it look dewy. The other palette feels too one note for someone that already has darker tones.

answer 2
I am a very fair redhead and use the color "Sweet". It's colors are good for fair skins, although the shader could be a little lighter, so I would suggest that you just put it on a little more gently when you use it. However, as a whole, it is a good color group for very fair skin.
