I love collecting makeup and getting the latest contour palettes but most of the times, I only use two eyeshadows to contour with! Yes, you heard it right ! EYESHADOWS ! I have found two eyeshadows that work so well for contouring. They blend nicely into the skin and they replace all my contour palettes!
MAC Omega Eyeshadow
If you have pale skin, this shade is perfect for you. It is a matte beige taupe that is very light which is perfect to give you a subtle contour without looking that you have put too much. This shade is very similar to the contour shade of the L’Oreal Infallible Pro Contour Palette in the color Light. I use this color during the day and it does not look heavy on my face at all.

MAC Charcoal Brown Eyeshadow
This shade is perfect for light to medium skintones. It is a matte taupe brown that does not have any red or orange undertones in it and it is also buildable if you want a deepest contour for the night time. It blends nicely into the skin and it does not look patchy or muddy at all.

So these were my two favorite eyeshadows to contour. I got them in an individual pan and I put them both in a Z Palette whenever I travel. They work really great and they blend nicely into the skin. You can get the individual pans from any MAC pro Store or you can get the eyeshadow in a single plastic container from the other stores.
The best thing about these two shades too is that they are not powdery and they do have a smooth texture that does not look heavy on the skin. If you are looking for a contour shade and you have a light to medium skintone, I highly recommend checking out these two!
