    Favourite eye and cheek highlighters are the shimmer side of the natural+shimmer MSF in Medium and Pleasureflush MSF (or I’ve recently found an almost exact dupe for it, the highlighter shade in Laura Geller’s Blush n’ Brighten in Boysenberry/Amaretti).

    I don’t do contouring at all, just blush.

  9. Ashley

    Eye: Right now, soft force from style warriors. I’ve been making a pretty good dent in it, I don’t wanna run out. ): But it really depends on the type of look I’m doing.
    Cheek: Twilight fresh face glow, it’s actually my only face highlight atm. I just have a sample, but you only need a teeny bit, so it’s lasting me a long time.
    Contour: Again, I only have one in my collection! I’m only nw15, so honey light from naked honey is a good little bit of contour/warmth.

  74. Lo

    eye highlighter: femme fi with a wash of brule over the top

    Cheek highlight: at the moment redhead msf, i’m really loving gold tones recently, other faves are silver aura loose powder, moon river MB, and refined msf

    Contour: being so pale, i haven’t found anything suitable for my skintone to contour with, although, i dont really feel the need anyway, it takes me long enough to get ready in the morning as it is, without adding another makeup step.

  75. eye highlighter: brule (MAC) for brow. dazzlelight (MAC) inner corners
    cheek highlighter: don’t use one. they make me look greasy! yuck!
    contour: strada (MAC)

  76. LORAC’s tantalizer bronzer is an amazing cheek contour product, but I’d have to say bobbi brown’s shimmer bricks pretty much have that trifecta on lockdown. the darker shades contour, the mid tones blush, the lighter shades highlight eyes and cheeks, and there is somehow always a shade that looks great on your lids. all that being true, my go to day to day product to do all three fast is physician’s formula shimmer strips.
