The highlighting and contouring trend can be overdone or it can be done beautifully. Leave it to Clinique to come up with a way for us to have us highlighting and contouring our face both beautifully and easy -- now that's something I like to hear. You see, Clinique is using their famed Chubby Sticks plus a Contouring Palette (you are going to want more than one of these gorgeous powders) to create an amazing look. Never over exaggerated, all you get is a simply beautiful look; lightly contoured to bring out your best features. Say Hello Cheekbones.
Contouring really is easy and one of the best kept makeup secrets to play up facial features. As I said, Clinique has made it so easy for us contoured challenged. The Chubby Sticks make it simple! They are mistake-proof.
