Confession: I am really bad at contouring. I can apply winged liner in the backseat of a car, but contouring is something that I’ve just never gotten the hang of. While I love a good highlight I usually skip bronzer altogether because I often end up looking orange and no amount of blending can save me.
Maybe I simply need more practice, or maybe I should just leave it to the Kardashians. Either way, now that I’m a mom I am all about easy to use, fast to apply products. Bonus points if it can pull double duty!
I’ve shared about the Nudestix Sculpting Pencil before and my feelings are still the same – it’s foolproof. You’re not going to get any severe lines with this products and you also don’t need any brushes or tools. Just swipe on and use your fingertips to blend.
One end is a medium contour shade and the other is a matte highlight. The contour is great for under the cheekbones, temples and jawline while the highlight is perfect for your inner corners and the bridge of the nose. I usually apply a shimmery highlight (like theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer) on my cheekbones after I’ve applied this to really up the glow, but if you want to be super subtle the pencil alone will do just fine.
