Since I didn’t wear a lot of makeup as a teenager and young adult, I’ve become a big fan of trying new makeup trends in my thirties. While I don’t go too wild with bright colours or edgy trends (no black lips for this woman), I do like seeing how the season’s hottest looks can be made more wearable for everyday style. From a dramatic smoky eye on date night to a perfect nude makeup look for daytime, I’ve mastered a few stylish trends over the years. But one technique that I’d never tried and always wanted to was contouring.
Luckily, Skincare by Alana recently came to the rescue and gave me the chance to test out the technique! This fantastic online boutique features an extensive line of cosmetics, skincare and more at great prices. My skin can be a bit finicky so mineral makeup is my go-to when I want to try a new look without worrying about my skin reacting with breakouts or sudden redness. And to my delight, Skincare by Alana offered a Glo Minerals Contour Kit that looked like it would be perfect for trying contouring for the first time.
