Best Brushes for Contouring & Highlighting

One makeup technique that eluded me for a long time was highlighting and contouring.  While I loved the overall effect, I was never able to make it work for me.  After experimenting with different methods, I found the perfect brushes that have made this world renowned technique so simple to achieve.

mac 109
MAC 109 – $35.  This dense tool is great for the sides of your cheeks, temples, and forehead.
Nars Kabuki Ita Brush – $55. This tool makes the perfect guide to chisel out your cheekbones – creating a slimming look to the face. Effortlessly!!
elf kabuki
ELF Ultimate Kabuki Brush – $10.  This is a fantastic choice for contouring around the whole face.  Especially, defining your temples, forehead, and jawline.
rt contour
Real Techniques Contour Brush – $17.99 (for the core collection = 4 brushes).  This one is my favorite. Works perfectly under the eye area and highest points of the cheekbones.
sigma-tapered-highlighter-f35
Sigma F35 – $24.  Another tool that works well for those narrow areas around the face. Such as the sides of the nose, cupid’s bow, under the eye, and down the bridge of the nose.

What are your go-to brushes for contouring & highlighting?  I didn’t even bother touching on “strobing” or “baking”.  In my opinion, you could achieve those techniques using the same brushes.  Have a great week.
