This post has been highly requested in the past couple of weeks, so I finally took the time to prepare it.
I decided to splurge on MAC Sculpting creams, after talking about them to lovely Catrine from unnakednails.com
I bought shades Accentuate and Copper Beech and I think that they are perfect for my skin tone and would be great for anybody with average white complexion.
They don't come cheap, one colour costs £17.50 for 5g, so they duo will cost you £35!
I think that MAC products are overpriced, like many other brands, but I wanted them badly!
WHAT ARE THE SCULPTING CREAMS FOR?
Everybody is going crazy about the Kim Kardashian look, her amazing cheekbones and flawless complexion.
These two pots will help you achieve a similar look, or at least make your face look more sculpted, add a bit of dimension and accentuate your features.
The most popular form of contouring is using bronzers and highlighters, but sculpting creams are becoming extremely popular, as they look more natural and not powdery (obviously).
Since I mentioned the sculpting creams I got asked what I use to apply them.
Well, I use my fingers or Real Techniques Pointed Foundation Brush to apply the creams
and Sigma F88 Angled kabuki or MAC 187 Stippling Brush for blending. You could also use Real Techniques Buffing Brush or a flat top kabuki. I find the Sigma F88 the best brush to use with the creams, as it can reach tricky areas like around the nose etc.
You will find a picture of where to apply the creams on the bottom of the post.
There is many techniques to apply the creams, but I do it on top of a primer, blend it a little bit and apply a foundation which matches my skin tone on top of the creams.
I set everything with a small amount of a loose powder and add a bit of blusher onto my cheeks.
That's it. Simple.
If you want more defined cheekbones, you can add a bit of bronzer or a contour colour, but I like to keep it natural as I usually can't control myself with bronzers and blushers and end up overdoing it :)
I hope this post was helpful. I really recommend the creams.
You can buy them online here.

note: this is before applying foundation and powder!
