I have read a lot of good things about the L.A. Girl pro concealers on the internet, so much so, I wanted to try them out for myself - and boy was I impressed. I purchased four colours: the green and orange for colour correcting, 'pure beige' for concealing and 'espresso' for contouring. I can pretty much say they are amazing. The product is so pigmented that you only really need to dab it on to get colour.
I bought the products online from Lustre Cosmetics at the price of £4.99 each. The tubes are small, but you get the most out of your money, as you hardly need to use any. I would also apply in dots rather than a solid line of colour to make it easier to blend. I love the colour 'espresso' as it is more dirty brown, rather than and orangey brown which makes it perfect for contouring, as it creates the illusion of a shadow.Once applied the colour sets quickly, so I wouldn't leave it there for too long before blending.
My pictures below were taken in daylight. However, I mostly prefer to contour for evening events, as I think it can be a bit much for daytime. Plus, evening lighting is more flattering on the contour..
Here are pictures before and after I concealed and contoured my face.
In the 'after' pictures, I have also added some mascara, blush and lipstick, but the pictures have not been retouched whatsoever. Promise! I think it's great how just a little bit of contouring can add definition to the face.
However, remember to contour for your face shape. Our faces are all different so tailoring your contour to suit you is important. Below, I have posted a little guide for face contouring. You'll notice the oval shape has no contouring as this is considered the 'perfect' shape in the make up industry.
