The Kontouring Kraze is far from over, people

Just when you thought the kontour kraze was over, well-known brands like Hourglass and Kat Von D (and Kim K, duh) went ahead and launched brand new cream contour kits in their spring/summer/fall 2017 collections.

We understand that summer is not the time to pile on heavy makeup or super-chiseled looks. But now that fall has officially arrived, you can bet that we're hopping right back onto the contouring bandwagon -- except this time using creams rather than powders.

Since skin does tend to be more dry, flaky, and textured during the fall to winter months, it only makes sense that cream contour kits are currently in everyone's makeup bags. Powders have the tendency of sticking to texture in the skin making makeup more visible (and ain't nobody got time for that).

When it comes to cream contour, there are a few different ways to apply shades to get the best results. Opting for a handy tool like a blending brush or Beauty Blender is ideal, as these instruments make it easier to blend the colors out so they look as natural as possible. For that I-woke-up-like-this finish, make sure to set your creams with a powder to ensure that they'll last all day. Dry-skin gals will be best off using a very finely milled powder like the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Microfinishing Loose Powder while those with more oily skin will dig the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder.
