Despite what you may have heard, the contouring trend is not dead.

Far from it – the effects have just become a lot more subtle.

That means going all out with your highlighting, but keeping those extreme, faux chiselled cheekbones for showing off on Instagram only.

British brand Contour Cosmetics’ line of products are all about making adding definition to your face and eyes easier.

From contour and highlight palettes to brushes, sprays and bases, here are the great products that you should check out first.

Contour 2 Multi-Use Contouring Set, £42, Contour Cosmetics

This palette has the perfect mix of cool and warm-toned matte-effect bronzers and highlight shades.

The formula is easily blended, making it almost foolproof once you’ve worked out which shades suit your skin tone.

This high-quality, synthetic brush is super-soft but it has densely-packed bristles with a flat top that make blending a breeze.

It works great with both cream and powder products.

This makeup primer really smooths out your skin to create the perfect base for long-lasting makeup.

What’s the point of contouring if it doesn’t last until the taxi queue home?

If you have oily skin, you’ll really love this as it’s mattifying too.

Talking of makeup staying power, adding their setting spray into the mix will really lock everything in place.

The mist is lovely and fine too.

Spotlight Ultimate Illuminating Set, £20 (pre-order), Contour Cosmetics

If you want your highlighter to be seen from space, you need the intense glow of the forthcoming Spotlight Ultimate Illuminating Set.

This trio of finely-milled, but super-irridescent powders contain a white, a champagne and a deep pink strobing hues.

It’s currently available for pre-order only.
