Contouring has taken over the makeup world this past year. Everyone is doing it or attempting to do it…. Literally! Whether you’re using powder products the Jaclyn Hill way or using cream foundations and concealers like Goss Makeup Artist, it doesn’t matter. We all have tried every technique!
I know this brush has been around for a while now but wasn’t able to get my hands on one until my dear mama bought me one for my birthday this past month. Every time the brush was re-released, it would become sold out within a matter of hours. It’s been THAT popular! The Nars Ita Brush ($55) is the best, most fool-proof way ANYONE can contour and highlight their cheekbones, nose, and forehead.
The Ita Brush is made of goat hair (humanely I’m hoping!) and not as dense as most contouring brushes. This makes the color application process so easy! I only swipe into my sculpting powder (MAC Sculpting Powder in Bone Beige) ONCE and tap off excess before starting at the top of the bottom of my cheekbone (does that make sense?!) and brushing down back and forth until I get the desired amount of product for that sculpted look. It’s literally THAT easy!
I don’t normally like to contour on a daily basis because sometimes it can look muddy and not “real”. But since I’ve been pregnant, I’ve noticed that my face is starting to fill out so contouring my cheekbones and nose have helped me feel less puffy! If you’re into contouring and highlighting, INVEST in this brush!! You won’t regret it!!
