Step by Step

Step 1 Sculpt your cheeks

Sculpt your cheekbones by defining them with a bronzing powder in a dark shade using a blush brush.

Use the flat side of the brush to apply the powder below your cheekbones. To apply it perfectly, start at the middle of your ear moving towards the corner of your mouth.

Step 2 Perfect your eye area

Using the tip of a blush brush, apply bronzing powder in a medium shade to the areas around your eyes.

Start at the middle of your eyelid using upward stokes.

Step 3 Enhance your face shape

To sculpt the contours of your face, enhance the parts of your face outside the oval with a medium shade of bronzing powder.

Apply it with a blush brush along the outer edges of your face.

Step 4 Highlighter for an added glow

Accentuate your facial features with a highlighter. Apply the powder to the top of your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, your temples, the middle of your forehead, just above the middle of your upper lip, underneath the highest part of your brows, and the middle of your chin.

To apply just a small amount, we recommend using a blush brush. For precision work, go for a concealer brush or an eyeshadow brush.
