am would like to know what products and brushes for use for contouring? I like the natural/nude look. I am currently using Pomegranate Primer from Korress and using Martinique tinted moisturizer by Nars as my foundation.
My favorite contouring method is with the COVER FX Total Cover Cream Foundations. It is a great formula and the perfect consistency to work with. It comes in three tones- for pink, gold, and neutral, and in each tone there are a number of shades - as long as they are close enough and in the same category, they will blend beautifully!
In terms of brushes, my favorite is Sephora's pro-airbrush collection. They have different sizes for precision levels, and give an airbrushed, blended finish, which is especially important when contouring. Try the SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Flawless Airbrush #56 for generally applying your foundation. Then use the SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Airbrush Concealer Brush #57 for the more detailed lines, like on the nose and under the cheekbones. Use the #56 again to blend.
Have fun with it and good luck!
For your complexion, try either MUFE's Sculpting Kit in 3 or 4. Martinique has a warm red undertone, and so does Kit 3, but if you're wanting something deeper try 4, which has a neutral undertone and won't clash (you don't want a cool brown against a red undertone, which can cause skin to look ashen).
Try using a fan brush or stippling brush to get a soft, natural contour without over applying product and overwhelming skin. Take a look at this thread if you need more info on the concept of contouring:
