I love contouring, but finding products that are light enough for my fair skin is quite a challenge, most are either too orange or generally too dark and require a lot of blending. I was so sick of the whole thing that I almost purchased a cream contour kit, (I never want to get into that,) but then I came across this powder eyeshadow from Illamasqua. Illamasqua offer a cream pigment named Hollow which is quite popular in the NC10 community for contouring, but again that's a cream product and not something I'm an expert on using, so when I found out there was a powder just as light, I was sold. 

Heroine is the most perfect shade I've come across for contouring, despite the fact it's actually an eyeshadow. It has the perfect balance of cool undertones and isn't at all orange! The shade is a very dusty, mousey light brown. I've been using both the orange Real Techniques Contour Brush and my NARS Contour Brush with this product and both work equally as well- the perfect amount of product is picked up every time. The colour applies lightly, but it can be very easily built up for a strong, dramatic contour, which then blends seamlessly. Oh and of course it's perfectly matte. I picked mine up for £16.50 on Beauty Bay.
