Find be­low four easy steps to help you achieve this flaw­less look.

Step 1: Map your face

With the darker of the two foun­da­tions, trace the tem­ples. If you have a larger fore­head, carry straight into the hair­line to min­i­mize it. To bring out your cheek­bones, find the hol­low part by plac­ing your fin­gers on the sides of your face, and where you feel it dip un­derneath the bones, just above is where you place your pig­ment. With the nose, you can go a lit­tle bit nar­rower at the tip or you can carry it into the brow if you have a shorter nose to add length or width.”

Step 2: Blend it

Take a damp beauty blender and tap over the area of the con­tour colour, merg­ing it into your base foun­da­tion. Tap in small cir­cu­lar mo­tions us­ing the big­ger, rounded end of the blender be­cause it has more space.

Step 3: Get lit

Con­cen­trate the lighter foun­da­tion stick un­derneath your eyes. If you want that ex­tra glow, you can do a lit­tle bit in the cen­ter of the fore­head and on the chin, and the bridge of the nose. Blend any ex­cess prod­uct with a damp beauty blender.

Step 4: Dust it

With a fluffy brush, dust the en­tire face with loose pow­der. Translu­cent is best for se­cur­ing a cream foun­da­tion.
