So you know about applying blush, strobing and contouring... but what do you know about combining the three for a beautifully sculpted, radiant look? Whatever your face shape, there's no doubt you can benefit from this winning combination to achieve the look of a naturally sunkissed, perfectly flushed and illuminated complexion just in time for spring!
Darker than your natural skin tone, contouring powder allows you to create the illusion of shaded areas on the face, thereby "pushing" the other areas forward and giving more structure.
For a subtle look, choose a contouring powder just 2-3 shades darker than your skin and apply it to the areas of your face that might need extra definition: the hollows of your cheeks and long the jawline, the sides of the nose bridge, and on the temples.
While many women refuse to leave the house without mascara, it's blush that makes us look more awake while combatting a dull complexion.
Use a fluffy blush brush to apply the product to the apples of your cheeks only (so, the front of your face, rather than toward the sides).
You've already created shadows, now it's time to bring light to your look with a shimmery highlighting powder!
Highlighter should be applied to the highest areas of the face, so use a precision brush to apply powder to the tops of the cheekbones, going up along the temples, the center of the forehead, down the bridge of the nose, the Cupid's bow, and brow bones.
Now, grab a brush and make sure all of the edges are blended out well for a seamless finish.
