Celebrities Love Tom Ford’s Versatile Contour-Highlighter Duo

Whenever a celebrity endorses a beauty product, I’m intrigued. When two celebrities individually share the same favorite, color me tempted—I typically pause whatever I’m doing to research if said favorite is really worth the hype. But when three or more A-listers cite something as their holy grail? I’m adding to cart faster than you can say, “Influenced!” Such is the case with Tom Ford’s Shade And Illuminate Contour Duo. After seeing not one, not two, but three beauty moguls consider the palette their makeup bag staple, I became a woman on a mission—and my glowy summer makeup routine has been forever changed.

Let’s proceed in the order of events, shall we? In a 2022 TikTok video, Sabrina Carpenter applied the creamy contour to the underside of her cheekbone, using a brush to blend the pigment until her complexion appears naturally snatched. Fast forward to two weeks ago, when Rita Ora unpacked her beauty bag with Harper’s Bazaar UK: The singer-songwriter deemed the contour-highlight duo a classic she’s owned “since the beginning of time.” She adds, “Under no circumstances will this ever be replaced because it does everything—you can do your whole face with this thing. Contour, highlight, lip, eye… It’s just phenomenal.”

That endorsement alone was enough to make me head over to Sephora, but then came the kicker: Just yesterday, Hailey Bieber posted a shortcake-inspired makeup tutorial to TikTok. Her bronzing product of choice? Yep, you guessed it—Tom Ford’s Contour Duo.

FWIW, Sarah Jessica Parker’s makeup artist also adores the compact for a “perfect glow,” and I have it on good authority that Laura Harrier considers it one of her faves. The verdict is clear: Tom Ford’s contour-highlight duo is the ultimate celebrity crowd-pleaser.
