...so simple!

Step-by-step guide...

  1. Use your fingers to feel for your cheekbones. The starting point for the darker powder should be at the top of your cheekbone, closest to your ear.   
  2. Sweep the powder down your face, using your cheekbone as a guide. Don't go too close to your mouth or lower than your ear lobe to avoid the finish looking unnatural.
  3. Use a lightweight finishing powder to set the contour.
  4. Add the lightest powder along the top of your cheekbone, using your eye socket as a guide.
  5. Finish by gently buffing the powder into skin with a blending brush for a seamless, natural-look.

The essential kit...

  • The contouring palette
  • The brush
  • The finishing powder
