How to Use Clinique Sculptionary Palettes
You can use each shade separately to colour, contour or highlight, or you can swirl them together for a glowing blush look. So when I first looked at these I wasn’t entirely sure about how you would contour with these palettes in the traditional way, but here are some tips that really helped me get the best out of the palette:
- Use the an eye shader brush to sweep the highlight shade across the tops of cheekbones
- With a clean brush, apply the contour shade just below cheekbones
- Swirl a blush brush across all three shades and sweep across the apples of cheeks to blend
