I popped along to the YSL party look masterclass last night and one of the things I wanted to tell you about was the contouring I had done using YSL Touche Eclat in shade 6. It is a bronzy shade, which would make a great highlighter for darker skin tones, but for pale skin like mine, contouring is where it’s at!!

Using Touch Eclat as a contour is great because it blends seamlessly with the skin and avoids any harsh lines. Here is my makeover finished.

The light in this photo isn’t great but I think you can see that my face is nicely defined. Here’s what was done, sorry for the unflattering pics!

YSL Touche Eclat shade 6 was brushed on like this and then blended upwards.

It is very subtle but effective. Remember this is before blush was applied. Contouring was also done to the jaw area like this:

This one is new to me but it is quite effective for a more sculpted look.

None of these photos are particularly flattering – iPhone and Selfridges lights really don’t work in harmony but I hope you can see what I mean!
I just thought it was interesting to show you that there’s more to YSL Touche Eclat than dark circles!
