Heart: The final lookStep 1: Blend the darkest parts of your face first. You can use your fingers or apply primer to your brush before blending for a dewy finish. Blend downwards from the tragus (your ear) toward your chin/jawline, then blend downward on your nose and temples.
Step 2: Apply highlighter on your lids to lift your eye and brow, then apply white eyeliner on your lower rim to open and brighten your eyes (this is great if you are tired and need a lift). Smudge under your lower lid with your contouring shade to finish your eyes.
Step 3: To finish, dust blush across the apples of your cheeks for some color.
