STEP 1: BRONZER (additional tips)
- Use a matte bronzer if you have oily skin. This product will give you a more polished finish. Also perfect for face contouring. It creates cheekbones, narrows a wide nose and slims a round face.
- I prefer to apply in a downward motion to avoid blotchiness but it's up to you to decide what's best.
STEP 2: BLUSH (additonal tips)
- Top up with the blush for an instant pop of radiance.
- To find where to apply it, just smile :) in the mirror and start from the apple of your cheeks (the plumpy part) and blend seamlessly halfway towards the hairline. But not at the hairline!
