CoverFX Foundation as Contour Looks Amazing on Darker Skin Tones

Hi, PrismPop! It's Shauna and today I’m showing you my go-to product for creating a cut, sculpt, contoured makeup look.
If you thought it was hard to find a foundation shade for darker skin tones, it’s even harder to find a contour shade. There’s lots of contour products on the market but pretty much none go deep enough to actually shade in those areas of my cheek bones that I want to sculpt out.
But as it turns out, you don’t need a contour kit to get your cheekbones looking sharp. All you need is a foundation a few shades deeper than your typical color. Only some companies have shade ranges that cover these needs and for me, Cover FX is that brand.
Cover FX started out as a foundation company and they’re all about complexions. Their foundation boasts 40 colors in their shade range, and the distribution of shades is equal all the way from the fairest to the deepest of them all.
The Pressed Powder Foundation ($38) is Cruelty Free, Gluten Free, Paraben Free and even Mineral Oil Free. It is oil absorbing so oily skin types will love this mattifying powder. I’ve also heard good things from users with combination skin and sensitive skin.
It comes in a little compact with a mirror and a squishy pad to dab with - but since I use it as a contour, I use a brush for a more precise application.
This product gives me enough pigment to shade under my jawline, cheekbones and forehead without looking ashy.
I am a big fan of Cover FX and will continue to use this foundation product as my contour along with their under eye concealer which I show off in another video! Check it out here.
Thanks so much for watching, please follow me here on PrismPop so you can see more of my videos coming soon!
Leave me a comment - what do you contour with? If not, what’s your HG makeup product?
Have a great day!

    This product looks awesome.

    Being older I don't care for powder because it tends to emphasize every little wrinkle but using it just for contouring is a great idea. I'm absolutely going to try this. Thank you for the review and I hope to see more videos from you.

    Good video! Very informative. Thank you. You look great by the way!

  • Carriann Hatfield

    Great review. I need to practice this to get natural look..ty

  • Mandie

    This is fantastic that you found something to contour with!! I have a hard time finding one that isnt too dark or that doesnt turn orange!! I have oily skin and for some reason when I use some contours they just fade away. Maybe I will try and do as you did and get a few shades darker foundation and go from there!! Great review girly

  • Naf

    Nice review. It looks amazing! My secret to long lasting makeup is to use primer and make sure that the skin is really clean so that the product is smooth over the skin.

  • Anna hudson

    I'm older and a little Leary on powder,it seems to go into the wrinkles,and I usually go without cause it looks better without,but I'm not comfortable with nothing on my face.

  • Stephanie Williams

    I keep it simple for the day.. I like a tinted moisturizer, lipstick, mascara. But you look fabulous. And I got some good tips

  • Nicole Prescott

    I try to keep it simple, usually use CC cream. You look amazing!

  • Katy Gutridge

    I usually us cream for contouring but I’m really liking how the power looks on you I think I’ll be swinging very very soon.!.! And underneath my foundation for the base I usually make sure my face is nice and clean before I apply my base elf primer to make my face makeup and foundation long lasting thanks for the video Shauna.🧡

    My routine for long lasting and flawless makeup is...I start with the Becca Skin Love Primer! Then I apply the Dior Forever 24hr Wear Matte Foundation with a Luxie brush, and once all of my face makeup is on I spray my face with the UD All Nighter Spray, and my makeup doesn’t budge at all throughout the day!

    I've never tried coverFX but would love to give a try.

  • Sarah

    My routine for a flawless base is to use primer then I follow with IT your skin but better cc cream. Then contour my face and then use UD setting spray. I've never tried Fx but it looks like a good product!

  • Shannon Grant

    I’m from the very light skin shade spectrum and haven’t tried FX. I find sometimes it as easy as using a darker concealer to achieve contouring and highlighting. In some cases, a white concealer is great for highlighting and controls the shine factor that sometimes enhances your pores.

  • Tiffany

    My routine for a flawless base is to prime my skin by exfoliating my skin then following with light moisturizer and primer. I like Goldfaden MD to exfoliate with, NxN to moisturize with, and Benefit to prime

  • Shannon citrino

    That's a great idea to use foundation a few shades darker than your usual color! Cover FX has always had decent products as a whole, I own some lipsticks from them and the formula they use is brilliant.

  • Haley

    I haven't tried Cover FX yet but more shade choices is a big plus!

  • Chelli counts

    You look very nice and kind and keep up the good work and have a awesome day

  • Anna

    I've never tried coverFX, but I definitely have wanted to give it a try. I love that they have a wide range of shades, to help better match people's skin tones. Great video!

  • Michelle

    I don't like it on myself

  • Mary Charles

    I myself am a big fan of CoverFix, I first got to try their face pallete in Boxycharm and ever since I've always used it . It took me a few months til I got down how to contour my face but since then I've become better and better. Girl your skin is flawless for real, my best friend her complexion is the same as yours and by me letting her watch this, shes now found the perfect color, thank you so much for sharing dear. Happy Holidays
