Even for the most talented of make-up obsessives, acing a seamless contour can be pretty difficult - but thanks to this top tip from Stacey Solomon's make-up artist Krystal Dawn, we'll all be walking around with Kardashian-esque cheekbones in no time.

Notepads at the ready, girls!

On Monday (5 September), make-up maestro Krystal took to Instagram (where else, eh?) to give us a breakdown of Loose Women panelist Stacey's TV Choice Awards glam, and after lifting the lid on all of the products used (Illamasqua, Urban Decay and Backstage Beauty) to name but a few, she let us in on the contouring hack she swears by.

Stomping all over everything we've ever been taught about contouring (GASP!), Krystal advised her fans, followers and beauty-lovers alike to ditch the orange-toned bronzers (we were a little reluctant, too) in favour of a pressed powder that is more grey in colour - yep, you ready that correctly, grey - and she pinpointed Rodial's Compact Deluxe, £52 as her go-to.

"Rodial does a grey based contour," Krystal mentioned as she reeled off her favourite beauty buys underneath a stunning snap of Stacey before she hit the red carpet. She continued, "[it's] is the most natural contour for your face and mimics real shadows."

By the looks of things, Krystal also dusted Stacey's nose with the clever compact and blended the magic powder up into her hairline and along her jaw to fashion a set of perfectly chiselled features, too.

Now, we know Rodial's contour powder might not be that purse-friendly at £52, but you don't have to worry, because Maybelline's Master Sculpt Contouring Foundation in Light/Medium, £6.99 also has a slight grey undertone and it's a fraction of the price.

All you need is an angled brush and you're good to go. Thanks, Krystal!
