How to

Hier wird gezeigt, wie das Bronzing Puder mit Hilfe eines Pinsels auf der Wange aufgetragen wird
Step 1

Sculpt your cheeks

Sculpt your cheekbones by defining them with a bronzing powder in a dark shade using a blush brush.

Use the flat side of the brush to apply the powder below your cheekbones. To apply it perfectly, start at the middle of your ear moving towards the corner of your mouth.

Step 2

Perfect your eye area

Using the tip of a blush brush, apply bronzing powder in a medium shade to the areas around your eyes.

Start at the middle of your eyelid using upward stokes.

Step 3

Enhance your face shape

To sculpt the contours of your face, enhance the parts of your face outside the oval with a medium shade of bronzing powder.

Apply it with a blush brush along the outer edges of your face.

Step 4

Highlighter for an added glow

Accentuate your facial features with a highlighter. Apply the powder to the top of your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, your temples, the middle of your forehead, just above the middle of your upper lip, underneath the highest part of your brows, and the middle of your chin.

To apply just a small amount, we recommend using a blush brush. For precision work, go for a concealer brush or an eyeshadow brush.

Expert tip

Get perfect contouring fast with our secret weapon, the Multi Stick. Get ready to see just how easy it is to obtain great results. Use your fingers to feel along your cheekbone – underneath this is where you’ll be creating the contour. Apply the Multi Stick to the tip of your index finder and create a contour along that line. Blend it in using a makeup brush until you’ve created a soft shadow.
