Makeup brushes for contouring

When it comes to contouring there are SO many makeup palettes to make the process earlier, but when it comes to application it is key that you have the right tools. There are plenty of makeup brushes made specifically for contouring, so I thought I'd share with you some of my top selections...

For a simple contour powder and blusher, some of my favourite sets are the Rimmel Kate Sculpting Palette (£6.99), Makeup Revolution Sculpt & Contour Kit (£3.50) and Sleek FaceForm palette (£9.99). These are all great value kits that have a bronzer, blusher and highlighting powder.

For a more detailed contour you can purchase palettes with various different bronzing shades as well as some lighter shades for highlighting. I love Makeup Revolution HD Pro Powder Contour Kit (£8.00), Nip & Fab Contour Palette (£15.00) and Pixi + MARYAM MAQUILLAGE Strobe & Sculpt Highlight & Contour Palette (£24.00).

When I'm contouring I start by applying an even layer of foundation using the So Eco Stippling Brush (£8.99, and then blending it out with a BeautyBlender sponge.

By far my favourite makeup brush for contouring is the Spectrum Collections No.1 Fan large fan brush (C01). This costs £9.99 and is a large and thick fan brush that can be used for applying either highlighter or bronzer. I prefer to use it for my bronzer to sculpt my cheekbones.

Once my contour powder is on I put some highlighter above this towards the top of my cheekbones using Spectrum Blush Crush (A05, £6.99) as this is slightly slanted.

I also have a set of ABODY makeup brushes from Amazon which were a bargain (£5.99 for 9 brushes, here) and I use the slanted brush to apply highlighter.

Then I pop blusher on the apples of my cheeks. Again I use a SoEco brush for this or the Real Techniques blush brush.

Finally I set it with powder. I love Rimmel InstaMatte Powder and Cover FX translucent. I apply my powder with a large fluffy brush like the Look Good Feel Better Multi- Tasking Brush, (£11.99 ,
