Yes its true, hello my name is Amie Louisa and I am a contour virgin. For so many months, since the “craze” started, I have been unsure whether to try it or not, I guess I was happy with my make up routine and didnt know what the big deal was. So yesterday I went out and got my self the Barry M Chisel Cheeks Contour set, I got this at Boots for only £6.49.
I am going to try this out, do a step by step photo guide and review it for all those out there that like me haven’t tried it or maybe those who have and are looking to find a cheaper option.
In the set you get 3 powders, first is a highlighter (lighter powder), a bronzer (medium brown) and a sculptor (dark brown). The thing I love about this set is the little guide, contouring looks pretty easy from all the videos I have watched and is also easy to remember but its always good to have a little guide just in case.
OK so step 1 is to put your daily foundation on.

For step 2 we highlight our cheekbones, chin and the length of your nose, all the way up to the center of your forehead with the first powder in our Barry M set.
Next we move on to the medium brown,sweep this across your cheeks, forehead and nose.
Then we apply our last shade, the dark brown to the hollows of your cheeks, blending this out all the way to the ears, along your hairline and then down the sides of your nose.
Our final step is to add a little blush this just helps bring a little colour to your face, I am using the Collection blusher “Bashful”, this is my favourite blusher not too pink, its really pretty and it stays on all day.
Ok guys so can we have a drum roll please……..
Thats it we are done, by now your face should look very chiseled, I have to say I am rather impressed and I now I get what I have been missing out on. I think Barry M Contour set has earned a permanent place in my make up bag!. After you have done your face you can head onto doing your eyes and lips the way you normally do. I can’t believe the difference! I am very very happy to recommend this to everyone and anyone, the have really nailed the chisel cheek look and I cant believe I have just came across this.
You can get yours at Boots online or in store and if you do let me know how it worked for you and if you love it as much as I do.
