Although strobing arrived and is a huge trend, contouring remains and has truly earned itself a place in the beauty hall of fame. I have been testing out the Topshop Contour Wand shades so you can see what they are like. I like these sticks because they include their very own blender to ensure a subtle, natural look. Here’s everything you need to know!

Topshop Contour Wand Swatches
Choose the shade you think best matches your skin tone. Angles is the lighter shade, but it’s also the warmer one. Whilst I am pale, I think I prefer Shapes for a more cool-toned and natural looking shadow.
Blended with the sponge:
The sponge is a great little tool for achieving a lovely natural looking, blended out result. I always recommend blending upwards when it comes to contouring as you don’t want your lines dropping.
The stick has a creamy texture that glides easily onto the skin and blends out really easily. I always think less is more with contour so it’s a good idea to apply a little, then blend and then add more if you want to build up the effect. Use this in the hollows of the cheeks, around the hairline, down the sides of the nose and along the jawline. Personally, I apply cream contours over foundation and then set everything into place with powder.
The Topshop Contour Wands are out now and are £12 each. Find Angles HERE and Shapes HERE. If you are looking for something cheaper that also includes a highlighter, check out the new Barry M Chisel Cheeks Creams.
