Contour Kits for Dark Skin

I have dark skin and I've been looking for a contour kit to warm up my face. I tried to order the MUFE Sculpting Kit a few months ago but it went out of stock and it still is out of stock. None of the other brands really carry anything for dark skin. Any recommendations?

Depending on how deep your skin tone is (My avatar pretty much matches mine :smileyhappy:), NARS makes some good ones. I use their bronzer in Casino, and while it isn't super obvious it definitely warms up my face.

My skin tone is quite deep. I'm in between shades 178 and 180 in the MUFE HD foundation so I mix them. I've tried Casino before and it didn't show up at all except for the fine shimmer in it.  :/

Have you tried Bobbi Brown Foundation sticks? I have read that using a foundation color that is a bit darker than your skin tone can create a beautiful contour.  If you get a chance, Scott Barnes has a great book called About Face (I borrowed it from the library) and he talks a lot about creating depth and contouring for darker skin tones. 

If you are interested, message me and I can send you a link about it.

Hi Ilovetopurplefy,

 

Guerlain makes some nice contouring shades. I recommend the shade 4 or 7.
