Ahh contouring, people are obsessed. My personal (and professional) opinion is that most people don't need contouring or sculpting but for the Kim Kardashian fans these new Clinique Sculpting Contour Chubby sticks couldn't make it any easier to do, they're so great and completely fool proof. Just suck in your cheeks and using the contour stick draw a line along the hollow (not coming down too far) and either soften the line with your fingers or a brush and that's it. If you want to use the highlighter chubby stick draw another line just above the first line you made (above the hollow) and blend the same way.
The sticks only come in one colour which will suit most Caucasian skin tones, except for the very pale (go here for the perfect bronzer for pale skin). They are oil free, long lasting, extremely easy to blend, like all Clinique Chubby sticks they swivel up so no need for sharpener (genius) and they are super easy to throw in a handbag without the need to carry a dirty brush as you use your fingers to blend the edges. Other than the lack of shades (which, knowing Clinique, more will probably follow soon) these are a big thumbs up for a perfect product.
You can also use the sticks the same way to contour your nose to re-align a crooked nose or make it appear thinner, and along your jawline and forehead. This is unnecessary for most people but a good trick to do if you feel you have a large forehead or wide jawline.
You can watch me demonstrate all the ways to contour on this short contouring video, if the video doesn't load you can watch it here.
