Here are our 5 top picks to achieve that sculpted, snatched look. Contouring is super popular now, but using the right product can make ALL the difference. The aim is to make it look you woke up like this hun! And getting a blended, airbrushed finish with your darker lines into your foundation is still a real skill. Try these contour sticks for the most defined looks…

Fenty Beauty

Match Stix Matte Skinstick

RiRi does it again, Fenty Beauty rarely fails and this contour stick is no exception. She’s come through with ALL the shades too so you’ll be able to get the exact tone you’re after.

Westman Atelier

Face Trace Contour Stick

Shop the stick ↗

Not the cheapest, but this contour stick is decadent. The colours are rich and you can feel the quality.

Makeup By Mario

Soft Pop Blush Stick

Shop the stick ↗

Ah Makeup By Mario is in Sephora UK now. Run don’t walk if you’ve been waiting to get your hands on it. I’m cheating a bit with this one, but it gives you a stunning contoured shape when using the right shade and can double up as a blush.

Charlotte Tilbury

Hollywood Contour Wand

Shop the wand ↗

Now don’t get me wrong, there’s not a wide range of colours with this one. But I’ve included it because this contour wand is great, the wand is versatile and application is a dream.

NYX Professional Makeup

 Wonder Stick Highlight and Contour Stick

Shop the stick ↗

The hun of the highstreet pick – Nyx’s offer is the most affordable and comes with a highlighter stick too. What’s not to love. The shade choice is pretty decent and the precise shape of the stick allows you to define those cheekbones!
