Usually in the state of a solidified cream stick, just swipe them like you would with a concealer over areas such as the forehead, cheekbones, nose and jaw to get a sculpted slimmer face. 

Here are the best contour sticks you can start with!

Maybe you’re born with it or maybe it’s Maybelline; others can’t tell, only you know it. Maybelline’s duo contour stick is well-loved for providing both a contour and highlighter to save you some monies.

Very easy to use, the contour stick does not only look natural on the skin, but is also easily blend-able into the rest of your makeup.
