The Contour Duo for Girls with Round Faces

I've previously written about the wonder that is the Filmstar Bronze & Glow from Charlotte Tilbury here but my contour game has recently been stepped up since the purchase of the Nars Ita Brush. I purchased this brush brand new off a reputable seller on Depop because I was unaware it was now back in stock, so you can pick your very own from Space NK or the Nars website. The brush is perfect for me and my face, I find because my cheekbones are quite low down and I have a chubbier/round face I have to really suck in my cheeks to create that shadow but with this being smaller and the bristles being tightly packed together and stiffer than my other contour brushes, it's so effortless to blend product into the hollows off my cheeks creating a natural contour.
What I like best about the Filmstar Bronze & Glow is the shades are so versatile, the contour shade is perfect for me as I'm quite pale and although it looks bronze in the pan, the shade has an ash undertone so it creates a subtle and natural shadow as you can see above. The highlighter is champagne with a hint of gold shimmer through it which I use to highlight my cheekbones, down the centre of my nose but also use on my eyes as an inner corner highlight. The highlighter is very natural in regular day light but when the sun hits those highlighted points of my face it really glows. Since using this combo I haven't used any other highlight or contouring products, the two colours in the palette suit my casper complexion perfectly and the Ita brush has made, what I thought to be a scary and complication make up application, so straight forward.

Have you tried any contouring products? What are your favourites?
