  3. Great video, it has a really nice effect and it would be much better for a lot of people instead of heavy-duty contouring.

    Damn now I have a lemming for Dior Skin Shimmer. It looks A LOT better than any other shimmer products :(

    I’ve always used an angled blush brush to contour and it’s always been too heavy for me, so thank you SO much for suggesting a dual fiber fan brush! I also prefer a very natural, subtle look and it looks like that brush will save me a lot of effort trying NOT to overdo it, lol.

    Hi Christine. Loved the video. I’m 20-25 on MAC. I believe Sculpting Powder Bone Beige would be too light for me to contour (hollow cheeks). Would you recommend Sculpt color for me? Or should I have the Bone Beige anyway?
    Again, thanks a lot for this great video and this great website.
