NYX Wonder Stick

NYX Wonder Stick in Light - £10 

 Only I'd get the hand of contouring as it starts to become an out of date trend! Typical! The latest trend seems to be non-touring or strobing - I'm not sure what Kim K is calling it but I'll keep an eye out! I've definitely not mastered a killer highlight yet, that's next on the agenda.

The only reason I've finally been able to master a contour is by using the NYX Wonder Stick. This little beauty is so simple and easy to use, you really can't go wrong.

The reason I've found it so hard to master contouring is down to my ghostly complexion. When the trend began, I found the products available in the drug store only catered for darker skin tones, leaving us pale girls with no options - or a muddy looking face.

I'd given up the search for quite a while, until I learned that you can now get NYX in the UK at Boots. The NYX Wonder Stick is pretty affordable at £10 - it's not a massive risk if you find it doesn't work for you.

I went for the 'Light' shade -  I think there's 3 in the range and this one works perfectly for me. (For reference I'm normally the palest shades in all drugstore foundations!)

The double ended stick comes with a dark contour shade and a light highlight shade and the packaging has a handy guide on where to place each shade on the face.

The consistency of each stick is buttery and creamy and it glides onto the skin really well. I put this intop of my foundation and it doesn't move my base around at all. I'll then blend out with my damp beauty blender to a perfect, powdery finish.

For me, this gives a really subtle contour, which I love. I don't think really dramatic contours suit pale skin tones, but each to their own!

It helps to give great definition and structure to the face, without being too obvious, especially along the sides of my nose.

If the idea of contouring appeals to you but you have no idea where to start, I'd definitely recommend this! It's foolproof!
