Are you the type of person who’s rushing through the door in the morning? No breakfast or tea? Do you apply makeup on the go? Then contouring probably hasn’t been your cup of tea. Wouldn’t you want something easy that you can apply anywhere instead of carrying a palette around? Well ladies, with these contouring sticks, life has gotten a lot easier for those of you who want to practice contouring but without the professional level of commitment it takes. These contouring sticks are essential if you’re on the go and want the same justice to the technique as a regular palette provides. Instantly create a slimmer and glimmer face by using a contouring stick to highlight your best feature and reshape you’re not so favorite features. Now to be clear, you do need to practice this as well but it will provide faster effect in less time. Like any makeup trick, practice provides a more natural effect so slapping on a stick won’t give you flaswless coverage either. This is an alternative option to save time.
