We can always rely on a TikTok hack to improve the way we do our own make-up. Our gal Saffron Barker recently uploaded a vid taking on the '3-minute make-up challenge' to see whether she could complete her usual full glam in record speed.

She revealed that her absolute fave contour product to use at the moment is the Fenty Beauty Match Stix and shared how it has truly revolutionised her contour game,

Saffron said during the challenge, "Next up I'm using one of my favourite things in the whole wide world. I got this in LA because it's always sold out here in the UK, but this is the Fenty Beauty Contour Stick. Oh my goodness, let me tell you, it's actually a game-changer."

Whilst demonstrating the contour stick in all its glory she continued, "It just blends so nice, it gives you the most flawless finish."

Brb, off to stock up on Fenty Beauty contour sticks immediately.

Fenty Beauty broke the internet in 2017 when the pop culture queen herself, Rihanna, released her make-up and skincare range that focuses on including shades and textures that are both diverse and inclusive.

The Match Stix are great if you're looking for a cream contouring stick to add to your make-up routine. They can add a warm bronze, create shadows and depth to the face, whilst looking evenly blended due to the creamy formula. The range of colours available allows you to find a shade perfect for your skin tone and for the look you're wanting to achieve.

The creamy, blendable formula allows you to easily create depth on the face whilst still rocking the natural look.

Contour was designed to cheat a more sculpted look. We love using cream contour products to create killer cheekbones as they look like they naturally exist on the skin.

After applying foundation and concealer, it's best to apply your cream contour before using a powder for an even, seamless blend.

Use an angled contour brush like this brush from Fenty Beauty, or a beauty sponge to blend the product seamlessly into the skin, avoiding any harsh lines.

Tips to create a natural looking contour

  1. Choose a shade that is slightly cool-toned. When creating a shadow on the face, it's best to use a shade that mimics a natural shadow created by a cheekbone rather than adding warmth and bronze.
  1. Using a cream product will blend easier onto the foundation. If you prefer using a powder contour, apply after you've set your make-up to avoid any harsh lines.
  1. Start contouring from the top of the ear down towards the edge of the mouth. Positioning the contour using a brush will ensure a natural-looking sculpted effect.
