The Beauty Product That Makes Contouring Easy

Favourites 32

When Charlotte Tilbury drops a new product, the whole world gets a bit excited – and her latest launch doesn’t disappoint. Her hot-off-the-press Hollywood Contour and Beauty Light Wands (already spotted in the beauty bags of make-up artists and bloggers alike) make carving killer cheekbones and lifting brow bones a breeze...

Tell us more...

This beauty double act is here to help you contour and highlight like a pro – designed to be used together, they add shade and light to different areas of the face. The Beauty Light Wand comes in one luminous rose gold shade, while the Contour Wand is available in two hues: ‘Light to Medium’ and ‘Medium to Dark’.

What makes them different to other contouring products?

These clever wands are pretty much fool proof – even for contouring beginners. The cushion applicator dispenses product evenly and exactly where you want it, while the formula is lightweight and easily blendable.

How exactly do you use it?

1. For the Contour Wand, start by sucking in your cheekbones and sweeping the sponge applicator on the hollows in a horizontal line towards your hairline.

2. Apply in vertical stripes on the sides of your nose and loop underneath, then apply on the sides of your forehead, temples and jawline.

3. Finish by applying on the eye crease to fake a deeper socket, then use the Hollywood Complexion Brush – or any kind of sponge – to buff and blend it all in for a seamless finish.

4. Complete the look with the Beauty Light Wand, applying it on your cheekbones, down the centre of the nose, in the inner corners of the eyes and brow bone. Buff in and you’re good to go.

5. For a more dramatic, chiselled effect, the colour can be built up by layering.

On a Similar Note

Who’s it for?

If you’ve previously struggled to get to grips with contouring then look no further – these wands really do give the art of sculpting a user-friendly spin. And if you’re already a dab hand at contouring, you’ll still love these luxe wands – the liquid-gel formula blends far easier than traditional creams and doesn’t sit on top of the skin like so many other cheaper versions tend to do.

Anything else?

The products have made their runway debut already, used by Charlotte herself on the models at Versace’s LFW show.

What’s the damage?

The Hollywood Contour Wand and Beauty Light Wand are priced at £29 each, and the Hollywood Complexion Brush is £30. These products don’t come cheap but you certainly don’t need all three to get the look. Our top tip? Invest in a Contour Wand and use a Beautyblender (or similar sponge) to buff the product in. Simply add your favourite highlighter, whether powder or cream, for a lit-from-within glow.
