I'm the first to admit that contouring is one makeup 'trend' that I still can't completely do/pull off, mainly the darker contour shade as it always seems to go wrong! Saying that, it may be that I haven't found the right shade that works for my skin tone as I am quite pale, so having a palette that has a few different choices is exactly what I need. My contouring fairy godmother has come in the form of XIP Professional and their amazing palettes!
XIP Professional, which stands for Xetremly Important Person does just that, you feel like a VIP when you use and wear their products as they are such high quality. They work with makeup artists to create every product so they work we each and every skin tone, meaning there is something for everyone. The packaging with its white with gold, embossed text looks very high end (wouldn't look out of place in Selfridges etc!) and professional while still looking modern. All products are also cruelty free too!
For such a new beauty brand, I've been amazing with the high quality of each of the products and have truly enjoyed using them - even if my contour still goes a little (or a lot) wrong at times! I love the fact that each palette has a range of different shades and the shimmer of the bronzer is perfect for adding a healthy glow to skin. Everything just seems very well made and professional, from the packaging to the products themselves. So with that, I'm off to practice my contour!
Have you heard of XIP Professional and what are your favourite contour palettes?
