When I found this Maskcara tutorial for 4 Minute Mom Make-up a couple of years ago, it totally revamped my Make-up routine.  However when I discovered PCA and learned that I am a Bright Winter, I had to give up brown- I was so bummed about giving up my contouring.

I talked about it in this post, and a few commenters suggested Nyx Taupe blush for contouring. It was surprisingly hard to find Nyx Taupe blush (had to get it as an Amazon add-on), so I’m just now trying it.

I was initially disappointed when I opened the package, I don’t know why I was expecting something magically brown but not brown? I don’t know. But I didn’t have high hopes.


Well contour me pleasantly surprised.

It’s not aging, it doesn’t look muddy, in fact it looks pretty good.


You can see next to the bronzer I was previously using it’s quite a bit cooler. Certainly not harmonious with my fan, but when applied with a light hand it’s not at odds with my coloring either.
