The Guize Contour Collection was sent to me for review. All opinions are mine alone.
This summer has been the season of glowy, contoured skin form. I’ve had so much fun trying out contouring products, and today I am sharing one of the best contour products I’ve ever tried. This is the Guize Face FX Contour Collection in Moonlight. If you have ever wondered how to contour, this is the palette for you!
And let’s not forget that even though the Kardashians put contouring on the map, this guide is for regular people. I am not Kardashian, just simply a mom who wants to look her best! Think of this as how to contour for normal people.
This contour collection comes in three different color collections, each for a different skin tone. Moonlight is for light skintones, Daylight is for medium skintones, and Twilight is for dark skintones. The palette contains four large palettes for contouring. There are two contour shades and two highlight shades.
The powder is wonderfully smooth and buttery, pigmented, and very blendable. I’ve never had a contour powder that blends out this well! On my fair skin, it’s difficult to find the right combination of undertone, texture, and blendability. This ticks all the boxes for me, and it’s been the only contour product I’ve used for the past month.
The palette also comes with a booklet about contouring. I found it extremely helpful, because I wasn’t sure how to use the two different contour and highlight shades. I have typically only used one contour and one highlight plus a blush. In the booklet, it explains exactly where to apply each shade based on your face shape. If you are a newbie to contouring, I highly, highly recommend this product as it thoroughly explains and everything and it’s incredibly easy to use.
I started out with my normal makeup and then added the contour so you can see the different in the before and after. The face chart shows where to place each color. The colors go 1-4, left to right. I started with number 2, then went to 3, then 1, and finally 4.
Color 2 in the hollows of the cheek and down each side of the nose.
Color 3 above color 2 at the top of my cheeks.
Color 1 above the middle of my eyebrows and along my jaws under the first contour.
Color 4 down the middle of my nose, on top of the color 1 above the middle of my eyebrows, and at the top of my cheeks above color 3.
Before and after up close:
And since it’s also helpful to see pictures that are not close up, here are two outfit pics to compare. The one on the left is without contour, and the one on the right is with contour using the Guize Face FX Contour Collection in Moonlight.
I hope this review was helpful! What is the one thing about contouring that holds you back? Is it finding the right product or knowing where to contour on your face?
