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.

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 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.

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!

I use this in "Sweet". I am very light/fair skinned. It's great too because you can make it look very natural, or if you are going for a dramatic look.. you can build it up. If you haven't bought it already, I recommend it. If you don't like it, Sephora will allow you to return it even if it's been used. Hope this helps.

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.

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.

Sublime
Hi!
So I have a cpl of highlighters & Bronzers ( Tarte-Park Avenue Princess, Becca-Moonstone, Too Faced-Snow Bunny, Nars The Multiple in Copacabana, etc.), BUT I am always looking for something "better". Basically just in the Bronzer area.....
My feelings are that the Tarte DID look pretty good on me, BUT now that I am anti sun ( & well just compulsive & ridiculous) I am curious to see if maybe Sublime (etc.) would be lighter/lightest of the bronzers in this price range.
Any & All thoughts greatly Appreciated. Thanks in advance :) !
OH Btw, I am light to medium w/ neutral undertones ( & medium/dark blond hair, & green eye's). Thanx.

If you're interested in a nice bronzer, try sephora's Honey Heat, it's a duo. It has a shimmer and a matte color. Blendable and so far as I know from using it, it's not orange looking at all, and compliments light to medium/olive tones.

I would say that you can use the contour as a contour if you believe it goes well with your skin tone. I've seen plenty of YouTubers use bronzer to contour or contour to bronze. Your face is a canvas, paint it how you wish.

it is a bit smaller than your palm, and yes, it is a bronzer. the name of it is misleading, since you should never use a bronzer to contour your face, but yes, the brown shades in all of these palettes are bronzing shades (as they are warm-toned and shimmery) and NOT contour shades.

It's bigger than the eyeshadow, smaller than the palm of my hand. It works all right for contouring, but the highlighter is so sparkly it's almost glittery. The bronze is great and I mix with this blush or another.
