Contour, Lift and Highlight with the New Max Factor Miracle Contouring Palette

With face contouring becoming a staple technique for creating a flawless face look, Max Factor has introduced the first-ever Max Factor Miracle Contouring Palette that comes in a spectrum of eight natural shades to suit every skin tone. Designed by Max Factor make-up artists and Middle East Makeup Artist, Samira Olfat, the contouring palette helps enhance the facial structure depending on each face shape and individual features.  

Samira Olfat has used her decade long experience in the makeup world to carefully curate the shades and formula used in the palette, which is designed with a creamy, lightweight and long-lasting formula to ensure ultra-easy blending. “It’s been an exciting and fulfilling experience to create the Miracle Contouring Palette. Max Factor is always striving to inspire and innovate, and this is a step in that direction”, Samira said.


It is important to first identify your face shape to ensure contouring is done using the right technique that compliments individual features and accentuate the areas needed to be highlighted and contoured. There are six universal face structures including round, rectangle, heart, oval, diamond and square.


The look is achievable in three simple steps: Contour, Lift and Highlight.

  • Contour by drawing a number 3 shape around the hairline, underneath cheekbones and jaws.
  • Lift by drawing a number 2 shape from the brow bone, across the cheek and out again.
  • Highlight with a number 1 shape down the bridge of the nose to sharpen features.


To complement the look, the Miracle Glow Duo Highlighter allows for an instant highlighted look using a creamy and soft formula. Finally, set the entire makeup with the lightweight and buildable Facefinity compact powder.
