Play with the colors and shadows of your face with some fresh contour and bronzer drops
As makeup brands continue to make their products more accessible and more inclusive to the masses, people, regardless of gender, have become increasingly comfortable using makeup to express themselves and enhance their features.
One of the widely used and developed products right now are bronzers and contours. These products can easily be manipulated to intensify color on the face or be used as shadows to emphasize bone structure.
If you have just started your journey playing with colors, here are some of the new and affordable launches to kick start your journey to discovering the confidence makeup gives to the wearer.
Issy (formerly Issy and Co.) is one of the local brands offering a wide range of makeup options. They have just relaunched the brand and introduced customizable face palettes with 52 singles and inserts including bronzers and contours. You can curate your own bronzer and contour shades into one magnetic palette and you can interchange them with other inserts including blush, highlighter, and eyeshadows, depending on what you will be needing in a day.
Another product that we are loving is the new multi-use mousse called Velvet Drop from Teviant. The pigmented mousse can be used on the cheeks, eyes, and lips coming in eight shades (Revel, Gala Night, Sucre, Garden Rose, Sex Appeal, and Cacao) which can also be mixed together to create a unique hue. If you’re looking for a neutral face color with a velvety texture, we recommend Cacao which is a matte cool-toned brown perfect for that subdued, natural-looking contours.
In line with Kiko Milano Philippines naming actress Marian Rivera as their first local ambassador, the brand also unveiled the Little Mermaid collection inspired by the hues and elements of the ocean. You can add the Sunkissed Baked Bronzer in your stash for an all-year round bronzed look. This ultra-fine powder bronzer comes in two variations: Sand Shadows with iridescent shimmers and a monochromatic darker shade called Beauty Sculpt.
