Contour with confidence


Cailyn Cosmetics launched their much anticipated Contour palette. This is the perfect all in one beauty basic for contouring. It is packaged in a luxurious sturdy palette, that flips opens. It features a large mirror, perfect for keeping in your handbag for touch up throughout the day. It is extremely chic with an all black case with just the letters ‘CAILYN’ in silver printed across the front. It keeps all the pressed powder shades safe with it’s strong magnetic closure. It features three darker shades that are ideal for shading and defining while the lighter shades sculpt and enhance your features. It also contains a primer and a finishing powder.

I love how lightweight this primer feels on my skin, creating a smooth canvas for applying my makeup.These silky buildable pressed powders then blend effortlessly. While the ultra – fine pressed finish powder adds a soft focus finish.

How I like to use the Cailyn Contour palette

Primer + Contour + Highlight + Finish


Step 1 – Apply Primer

I like to apply the primer over my entire face to prepare the skin for contouring and highlighting. This gives my skin a smooth canvas to begin with.


Step 2 – Apply Highlighter

I then apply highlighter under my eyes, on the bridge of my nose, under my brows and the cupid’s bow. I also like to apply highlighter onto my collar bones. ( I like to use the first yellow based tone under my eyes and on my collar bones, while I perfer to use the second shade with the pink undertones to highlight.)


Step 3 – Apply Contour

I then apply the darker contouring shades right below the hairline, at the top of my forehead, on my temples, along the right and left sides of the nose, hallow of the cheeks and under my jawline. I then blend the shades to fit my personal face tone. ( I like using the middle darker shade to contour.)


Step 4 – Finish Powder

To finish I then apply the finishing powder over my entire face to give a smooth matte finish setting.


To create a gentle bronzed look I like to take the third shade from the contouring selection and swirl it all over my face to give myself a much needed sun kissed finishing look – perfect for a gentle day time look.
