Step 2: Using a contour brush, apply the contour (which is a greige colored powder) underneath the cheekbones, along the jawline, under the nose, and around the hairline. This will make these areas of the face recede, giving your face a more sculpted, chiseled look.

Step 3: Swirl a pink-colored blush onto the apples of your cheeks using a blush brush. It’s helpful to smile when applying the blush, so you can more easily see where to place the color.

Step 4: Using a fan brush, lightly dust on a luminescent highlighter onto the tops of your cheekbones, down the bride of your nose, on the chin and on the cupid’s bow above your lips. The highlighter brings a radiant glow to the skin by reflecting light.

Step 5: Apply a shimmery charcoal eyeshadow all-over the eyelids, concentrating the color on the outer part of the eyes. You can either use an eyeshadow brush or your (clean) finger for a smudged effect.

Step 6: Using a dark brown kohl eyeliner, line the waterline (which is the inner rim of the eye) for definition. Then line the eyes starting with a bolder application at the outer part of the eyes, tapering the line as your draw inward. Smudge the liner to create a soft, diffused appearance.
