Rate MAC’s Studio Fix Sculpt & Shape Contour Palette in Medium/Dark (& win it)
When it comes to interviewing pro makeup artists, I LOVE spending time with the MAC Senior Artists. They are so passionate about their craft and have incredible backstage stories. All three Canadian artists work backstage during Fashion Weeks in Milan, Paris, London and New York – on some of the biggest shows. So they are at the leading edge when it comes to makeup application trends and looks.
These artists have been perfecting the art of subtle contouring for years – carefully playing up each models’ features in a natural and beautiful manner. I found that many who enthusiastically jumped on the contour trend created harsh lines and looks. MAC has always about creating a more natural look.
Inspired by its backstage work, MAC designed a pro contour palette that allows you to sculpt and shape your features. It’s called the Studio Fix Sculpt and Shape Contour Palette. (This particular one has shades for medium to dark skin tones.) You’ll find three matte contouring powders and three subtly shimmery highlighting powders. Each highlighting shade contains soft-focus technology to softly reflect light while the contouring colours provide sheer coverage to create natural-looking shadows.
Here are the shades in this palette:
Soft Focus: plantain yellow gold
Lightsweep: warm beige with fine pearl
Warm Light: clean peach
Shadester: mid-tone leathery brown
Shadowy: deep brown matte
Definitive: mid-tone reddish brown
Each shade provides smooth, even silky application. The formula is dermatologist-tested and works on all skin types.
