Deeper shades are great for creating shadow under the cheekbones, and they can help make the nose and jaw appear smaller. There are also highlighters that can be used to add extra dimension to your browbones and the inner corners of your eyes. Plus, it's simple to customize your application technique to match your bone structure.
Ruimio Cosmetics and Elizabeth Mott have been removed due to fulfillment concerns. In their place, we’ve added the Glo Skin Beauty Face and E.L.F. Cosmetics Perfect, which both feature versatile shades that blend seamlessly. The former kit was awarded the top spot because of its high-quality ingredients and suitability for a range of skin tones.
