You know me: staunchly anti-fad, vehemently opposed to the suggestion that make-up should be worn as a mask, very much not a candidate to join the contouring craze. But the day job required a little video on contouring with Smashbox, so I gamely made one in which their National Make-Up Coach Janine Bird did some of it on me. Once I’d seen the result, I was converted.
Granted, it probably wasn’t the hardest sell – Smashbox’s approach isn’t the terrifying paint-by-numbers thing the Kardashians have going on, but more a case of just emphasis and blending, which is my mantra for make-up application anyway. This palette of theirs makes it all much easier, so if you’re new to it as I am, get one. Also, watch the video we made: it really is very helpful. Click here to watch.
