Taken straight from the Younique website about the Contour kit:


Sculpt and contour for a defined finish

Feel perfectly polished with a palette that has you highlighting and contouring for a gorgeous, accentuated look. Each palette has three blendable, buildable products that provide natural coverage and allow you to create depth and dimension in your face. Choose from a light, medium, or dark palette to match your skin tone.

This AMAZING palette is only $49 and you get the brush, too!

I love that it is fragrance free and paraben free!  And can we talk about the brush?  That brush alone is worth $32 and you get it FREE!!!!  Hello savings!

So, what do you exactly do with a Contour Kit?   Get ready!  The possibilities will amaze you!  Use the Younique Contour Kit to create the illusions of higher cheekbones, a slimmer nose, softer jawline, or smaller forehead.     I have even seen people use this system for the appearance of a bigger bust and even to create the look of stomach abs!    The overall results from highlighting and contouring really is amazing, though.

You can use the kit alone for a soft, subtle look.  Or, you can blend with your foundation to get a deeper or lighter color, as well.  The key is to use light and dark to create that accentuates your best features and hide the ones you do not love so much.  Personally I like to slim my nose and my neck under my jaw line and chin.  Oh, the power of makeup is a wonderful thing!
