When it comes to drugstore brands there is no lying that they lack in the contouring sector. Bronzers and contouring products are usually a ghastly orange shade and jam packed full of shimmer, In saying this, I have tried a couple of drugstore products that do a great job at contouring.
I prefer to use foundations for contouring when I’m using drugstore products, this is because most don’t contain any shimmer (shimmer free is essential for contouring) When selecting a foundation to contour with go two to three shades darker than your skintone.
Foundation sticks are great for contouring because they are easy to apply, not to mention they’re super blendable. I love the ELF Studio Moisturizing Foundation Stick (super creamy!) and the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation Stick (applies as a blendable cream, but dries to a matte, powder finish)
I also love to use regular face powder, it is best to use ones that can be used alone and to set makeup as these are usually semi-sheer, which is great if you are a beginner or someone who isn’t great at contouring. I love the *Revlon Nearly Naked Face Powder
I hope I helped you and if you need anything else feel free to ask.
If any product you use irritates you discontinue use immediately.
