How to contour for any lighting_Kat Von D Shade & Light Contour Palette_model Juliana Beattie_makeup Erik Soto

Kat Von D Beauty celebrity makeup artist Erik Soto gave us a contour-palette demo on model Juliana Beattie -- see the video post here.

Gosh the world has gone contour crazy, hasn't it? Well, the North American world, anyway. Contour, contour, contour. And if you're just getting into the technique, you want something that won't overload your face with one dip of your brush. So Beautygeeks is gonna help you with that.

The Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette (below) is pretty much mistake-proof. The powder has an amazing smooth, super-fine texture, looks gorgeous on skin (as you can see on model Juliana Beattie, above), and offers options suitable for the palest of faces as well as medium-dark complexions. The dual-ended brush is great, too, nicely sized, dense where it needs to be, soft, and comes with a protective case.
