Ulta Beauty Haul – Contouring…

I have been in desperate need of some new makeup (and still am!!) I just got a new ‘do’, my nails freshly done, and what else not better than some amazing new makeup to add to the beautifying madness!?

Here’s what I ended up with…

Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit

After concealing & contouring… (for my first time!)

I’ve always seen contouring guides on Pintrest using liquid concealers, highlighters, etc. But I chose this one in hopes that it would be a great guide for me, with many options and have a soft natural look. I think it paid off! I used the Smashbox brow kit and got the result I’ve been looking for since I’ve started using creamy pencils from Sephora. It really gave my eyebrows a clean, amazing look and enhanced their shape, but I didn’t realize how heavy I had put it on until taking a step back. Changing from the pencil to the powder, I was a bit unaware of how much even the tiniest bit of powder could impact the color.

I’d love to hear back any advice, what you think of these products if you have them, and any recommendations for some great bronzers & blushes!
