Contouring isn't dead—it just got a much-needed makeover. Whereas sculpting out cheekbones and reshaping the face used to be a time-consuming, color-by-number endeavor, the 2017 approach is a lot less involved and a lot more natural. As such, the best contouring products and palettes have to be blendable, believable, and above all else, user-friendly.
It's unsurprising that Urban Decay heeded the call—the Naked collection has earned a cult following for a reason. But what sets the Shapeshifter Palette ($45) apart is its versatility: It boasts an array of cream and powder formulas in different shades for easy sculpting, highlighting, and color-correcting. And in the video above, our beauty director, Deven, demonstrates just how easy it is to use.
