This will be a quick walk through of How I Highlight & Contour using the Clinique sculpting contour and highlight chubby sticks. These have a very nice creamy consistency that blends easily to give a natural finish. As you may all know my skin is rather pale, and these blend beautifully to give an incredible finish! It’s so natural that you could build up more coverage if you need too! I was worried about how orange toned the Clinique contour stick looked, but once blended in it looks flawless.

Product Details: Clinique Sculpting Highlightย andย Clinique Sculpting Contourย Chubby Sticks


I normally switch between these and my Anastasia Beverly Hills contour kit and really like how these are a creamier consistency compared to the normal powder formulas. The consistency makes these super easy to blend to highlight and define certain areas of your face with a natural finish. I’ve included photos above of a basic rough outline of my contour routine and the main areas I apply the contour stick/powders too, alongside the places I like to highlight.


The highlighter really is pretty with a subtle shimmer that really enhances the areas you want to highlight and give a nice dewy appearance for a healthy glow. You can use this underneath or over your make-up, but I normally prefer to it over my make-up to complete the look. This isn’t something I’d typically do every day, even although it does provide a natural finish sometimes I just prefer to keep things simple and do enjoy going more out with my makeup at the weekends.


Once applied to the skin I will then go in with my Real Techniques Contour brush and Expert face brush to work the contour cream into my skin for a natural looking finish. After that’s blended in I will then get my Real Techniques Detailer Brush from the Core Collection to gently work the Clinique Sculpting Highlight cream in. You don’t need to get the contour perfect because this will be blended into the skin so it’s fine if you can’t get the lines perfect!


I’ve been very impressed with these chubby sticks and pleasantly surprised at how well the contour cream blends on my pale skin to give a really nice finish. The creamy formula makes these great to work with and blend easy! However I still love my powders and do find powder better for oilier skin like mine but with that being said the creamy formula does last all day on my skin and looks natural, whilst giving a healthy glow.


You can re-create this contour regime to the max, or tone it down by focusing more on the cheekbones and jawline for more defined facial features.


What’s your favourite highlighter/contour palette for summer?

  • Thanks Mel and I haven’t tried the blushes but seen a couple of reviews on them and could definitely see myself buying soon! xx

  • Jessica Wynne

    This is amazing! I have always been afraid to contour and can’t wait to try now! You look beautiful!


  • It’s look awesome =D

  • Thanks lovely and I highly recommend you do, I’ve loved these and can’t stop using them now! xx

  • Thanks so much <3 and you should try them out, I'm sure they wont disappoint! x

  • Thanks lovely and hopefully this helped you! x

  • Thanks so much and it definitely is! It gives a more precise finish xx

  • Great post!! I use bronzer and concealer to highlight and contour & I don’t do anything special. I love the idea of using these chubby sticks (:

    • I used to do this and tbh it’s really just the same! I do like contour kits but at the end of the day bronzer just does the same thing really lol and it saves money too! x

  • Georgiana Teglas

    Such a helpful post. I normally prefer powder bronzers to contour, but these look a lot easier to use. The colour seemed a bit dark for me, but after you blend it looks really nice.

    • I normally do too! It’s cheaper and bronzer does the same thing in my opinion! It is dark but my skins really pale and it just goes to show how the colour blends nicely and gives a non-dark finish or orange tint! x

  • I have the Clinique highlighter stick and I LOVE it- seriously I use it all the time!!

    C’s Collection

    • It’s amazing right? It’s so pigmented and just gives a really nice finish, I love it <3

  • The clinique highlighter looks gorgeous but I think the contour shade would be far too warm toned on my super pale skin ๐Ÿ™ x

    • Its definitely a must have! It’s very pigmented and just gives a beautiful finish!! And my skins super pale and the contour stick blends effortlessly! It leaves no orange tints or un-natural finish, tbh I could have went darker ๐Ÿ™‚ xx
