Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye: The One Makeup Palette You Need For Eye Contouring

07/23/2015 02:50 EDT | Updated 07/23/2015 02:59 EDT

By now we all know what contouring is. The face-defining makeup technique is arguably one of the most popular beauty trends at the moment, with plenty of tutorials and palettes dedicated to sculpting your features for Kim Kardashian-worthy cheekbones and jawlines.

However, contouring isn't only limited to your face -- the technique can also be used to define and enhance eyes.

Eye contouring (like face contouring) isn't anything new, in fact, you may already have tapped into the art by putting shadow in your crease for definition or applying light shadow to the inner corners for an eye-opening look.

But for those of us who can get a little lost when it comes to eye shadow application (let alone contouring), there's one handy product that'll make it easy: Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette.

Much like Kat Von D's Shade + Light face contour kit, this palette makes eye contouring virutally foolproof. And while the 12 matte shades may seem overwhelming, trust us when we say it's pretty simple once you break it down.

The palette contains three colour quads (neutral, cool and warm), each with coordinating nude and neutral shadows: base, contour, definition and highlight. All of these shades can be used with the dual-ended Shade + Light Eye Contour Brush, which Kat Von D global artist Erik Soto has told us is "the only makeup brush you'll ever need."

And in case you don't know which shades to use where, not to fret -- the palette comes with a handy guide complete with illustrated instructions, making application easy for even the most inexperienced beauty lovers.

We're sold.

Kat Von D's Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette ($55) and Shade + Light Eye Contour Brush ($35) are both available at Sephora.
