Freedom Makeup London: Contouring Products

I have a few products from the Freedom Makeup London range that I enjoy for contouring. I must preface this blog with the admission that I am not an avid contouring kind of girl.  I like to give my face some natural shape and dimension but by no means do I sculpt out my cheekbones, nose and forehead like so many makeup gurus.  So please keep my context in mind when reading this review 🙂

The three Freedom Makeup London products I am going to discuss today are:

  • Pro Contour palette in Fair,
  • Bronzer in shade 110 matte,
  • Pro Highlight in Brighten.

Pro Contour Palette in Fair

The Pro Contour Palette is designed to contour the face with shadow and highlight.  It is a small little compact that comes with a great mirror.  Both powders are matte, are extremely finely milled and so soft to the touch.  I very much enjoy the highlight shade to highlight under the eyes and cheekbones.  The darker contour shade is actually quite pink toned and it is a little too warm for my taste for contouring purposes, however, I really like this as a nude blush.  It is extremely pretty on the cheeks!

Bronzer Shade 110 Matte

For actual cheek contouring I prefer the Matte Bronzer, shade 110.  It is a lovely cool tone and perfect for my pale skin.  Again, this is soft and finely milled and it blends beautifully on the skin.  I wrote a complete review of this product and if you are interested you can read it here.

Pro Highlight – Brighten

Finally, although I like to highlight the face with a matte powder first, there is something very satisfying about adding a bit of shimmer to the high points of the cheek bones.  The Pro Highlight in Brighten is a lovely choice for my fair complexion.  Firstly, this is a beautiful looking powder with its elegant swirl embossing, but is is also a lovely soft texture.  This is a pigmented highlighter but not so pigmented that you end up with a line of shimmer that you then have to blend out in a panic.  I like coloured face products that you can build slowly 🙂

I think that these three products together allow for really natural face contouring that is pretty fool proof.  I can’t fault the quality of these powders, particularly for the price.  And the fact that Freedom Makeup London is cruelty-free makes these a great buy.

You can find the Freedom online store here, if you would like to try out their products for yourself.

Have a glorious day!
