How to Contour with Cream Foundations - MAC Sculpting Creams Demo & Review

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another video.  I filmed this maybe 2.5 months ago but I still think it's relevant.  I'm doing a full review of the MAC Pro Sculpting creams from their MAC Face and Body Limited Release Collection.  In this video I review the products and also give you some alternative product recommendations and show you a do a full contour using the products.

Check out the video!

Onto the products!  I purchased all of the Pro Sculpting Creams in the collection.  It includes a range of colors that can be used as highlight/contour depending on your skintone.

They are all cream colors and packed in a MAC Blush Palette.
Here are swatches.  The actual color appears darker than the top coat of the product.  Richly honed in the darkest shade in the collection - it's warm, red toned dark brown that will look great on deeper skin tones.
Accentuate is the obvious highlight color in the collection.  It's a light peachy shade that will look great to highlight on up to tan skin tones.  I do wish they had more of a yellow based highlight in the collection as well - that would suit warmer skin tones.
Copper beech is a yellow brown tone that works up to tan skintones.
Naturally defined is a neutral light brown that would work well to contour lighter skin tones.  It could also work as a highlight on darker skin tones but it could come across ashy.
Coffee walnut is the obvious shadowy contour color - the only truly cool toned contour in the collection.
Here is a shot of the contoured look from the end of the tutorial.  I used the cream products as a base, and then set it with powder products.

Final Thoughts:  In my opinion, you can contour with any cream foundations that are darker than your skintone.  Graftobian has a wide range of cream foundations that I use to contour in my kit.  Ben Nye also has specific cream contour shades that are a more affordable option.  I'm not sure if the MAC Sculpting Creams are still available - but they do conveniently deliver a range of contour shades for you to purchase, but they're not only options out there.
