Want to slim your nose, open up your eyes, or chisel your cheekbones? You could go the plastic surgery route, but that’s so expensive – not to mention permanent. Luckily, Stila’s got a solution for all the fickle penny-pinchers out there.

The Stila Contouring Trio is a set of three shading powders to sculpt your facial features. If the word ‘contour’ is dredging up frightful memories of the 1980’s, be not afraid. Stila has modernized the art of contouring, and made it super-easy to follow.

Each compact contains three shades: light (a high-lighting powder), dark (a low-lighting powder), flash (a soft neutral shimmer), a step by step simple instructions on how to contour cheeks, nose and eye, and some cute lights that surrounds the mirror.

I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to follow the directions and replicate the looks – not to mention how flattering the shading powders were on my skin tone.

And here’s the best thing about this kit…at the end of the night when I was starting to miss my petite, cat nose and chipmunk cheeks, I simply washed my face.

The Stila Contouring Trio is available at Sephora and stilacosmetics.com.

    I wrote about this on my list of birthday desires! Is it complicated to use?

    It’s actually very easy to use. I love makeup, but I am no makeup artist – and I was able to catch on quick. The kit comes with illustrated instructions, so it simple to follow along. And, as you can see, there’s also a YouTube video that you can watch. Although Stila recommends some of their own brushes, you can get away with ones you already own. And if you make a mistake, wash it off and start over.
