I just started learning how to contour about a couple of months ago. I learned by practicing using a drugstore palette, I used the contour palette by Wet and Wild, it helped save me money and I felt like I was able to make mistakes since I wasn't worried about using a pricey product. It also was super helpful to watch a bunch of tutorials beforehand and see different techniques people used. I eventually figured out what works best for me and then went out and bought Kat Von D's palette. Good luck!! You'll do great!
