Step 2: I applied Mary Kay foundation using the flat Sigma kabuki brush.
Step 3: I used a flat concealer brush to highlight using a concealer that is two shades lighter than my usual colour (depending on the look you are trying to achieve). I then applied the concealer under the eyes to the high part of my cheekbones to define my cheeks, in between my eyebrows, and the bridge of my nose and chin.
Step 4: I used the blending brush to contour using a darker concealer (in my case I used a darker foundation – Mac 9.5) directly under my cheek bones, the sides of my nose bridge and one inch above my temple to add more depth to my face.
Step 5: I blended the areas that were highlighted and contoured using a flat kabuki brush.
Step 6: I set the highlighted areas (under eyes, highest point of cheekbones, nose bridge and in between my brows) with Ben Nye Banana Powder using a beauty blender/wedge. Blend, blend, blend.
Step 7: I used a dark brown blush to emphasize areas I contoured earlier (under cheekbones, sides of my nose bridge). You can use the dark brown shade in any contour palette. Blend away!
Step 8: I applied pressed powder all over my face while carefully blending it in.
Step 9: I applied blush to the apples of my cheeks. The blush I used is highly pigmented and creates a bronzy effect so I just substituted it for a highlighter. If yours isn’t as pigmented, you can add highlighter as well.
