Mac #217 Blending Brush
Fluffy powder brush
STEP 1: MAP YOUR FACE
Using Cinnamon in the ABH Cream Pallet and either your Mac #217 or a small eyeshadow brush and trace your temples. If you have a larger forehead, carry the shade straight into your hairline to minimise it. Then 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, draw a line from your hairline just under the start of your cheekbone half way between your starting point and your mouth. With your nose, 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 beautyblender and tap over the area of the contour color, merging it into your base foundation. Tap in small circular motions using the bigger, rounded end of the beautyblender because it has more space. But for details like the sides of the nose, I flatten it and squeeze it into my hands.
STEP 3: GET LIT
Using Banana in the ABH Cream Pallet draw 3 lines in a downwards motion underneath your eyes. Do the same in the centre 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 powder brush, dust your entire face with loose powder. Translucent powder is best for securing a cream products.
STEP 5: ROCK IT
Once you’ve completed your contour, finish slamming yourself up with a smouldering eye and apply blush to the apples of your cheeks, add a lip and rock your look with confidence!
