    I'm curious. I'm new to the whole contouring trend (probably began 4 months ago), and it's more towards the natural side. It's the normal places - nose, jaw and cheeks.

    I'm looking to take it a step further and go from powder to cream contouring. I've also been looking for a good brush to use.

    Any recommendations for a good brush and cream contour/concealer? I don't mind any (high end/drugstore). I've been using a bronzer from MAC (matte bronze) but I don't think it's hitting it for me. It's fabulous in the morning, but after I'm back from university, it seems less defining and fades away.

    I've got tan (Indian) skin and black hair if it helps. I also don't wear foundation anymore, so I'm looking for something that will easily blend and last on my skin.

    Looks natural, says with irony.

    I find it such a distortion of reality. Usually looks nice though.

    Use the NYX Bronzer- honestly it’s amazing, it’s the perfect shade for tan skin tones (shade- dark tan)

    Hi lovely. TBH, I don't contour at all as I don't think it looks natural. However, for parties or events it can look fab. I simply use bronzer to define my cheeks bones and areas that the sun naturally hits. The bronzer I use is in Urban Decay's naked flush palette which also comes with a blush and highlight

    I don't contour, but only because I don't do it well haha. Once I get better at makeup, I think I will do it often

    haven't contoured at all, I honestly don't see the appeal

    everytime I watch make up vids I think the girls look good enough when just wearing foundation, blush and do their eye make up, when they start adding the contour and highlighter I honestly think 'why did they feel the need to add all that too?'. the highlighter just makes their face look shiny and the contour makes their face look like a picasso painting (maybe thats the point, I dunno)

    I think it appears natural and yet is very far from being natural.

    I imagine some guys get a fright when they see their new girlfriends without makeup or contour

    I see so many youtube makeup tutorials where they are highlighting and contouring, and i think it looks nice in photos ...but I'm not sure how it would look in real life- i imagine it would like noticeable
