Applying bronzer and blush with an angled brush
Step 1

Bronze your face

For a lightly tanned complexion, apply bronzer to your cheekbones and temples in a “C-shape”. To add an extra dose of freshness, pick up a blush and apply it along your cheekbones up to your temples.

Step 2

Rosy freshness

To help your eyeshadow stay in place, apply an eyeshadow base over your entire eyelid. Starting at the outer corner of the eye, apply a pink-toned eyeshadow to your upper and lower eyelids. For extra intensity, accentuate the outer eye corner and the lash line with the same blush used on the cheeks.

Expert tip

For a tone-on-tone makeup look, apply blush to both your cheekbones and eyelids.

Intense looks

For an intense eye look, apply an eyeshadow pencil to your lower waterline. As you apply the pencil, close your eyes and gently pull it along the waterline. This enhances both your upper and lower waterlines and adds extra depth.

Enhancing the lips with a lipstick that matches the eyeshadow
Step 5

Make your lips look bigger 

To enlarge the appearance of your lips, overline them slightly with a lip liner. Then use the same liner to fill in the outer portion of your lips, leaving just the center free. With a lip brush, apply a somewhat lighter shade of lipstick to the center of the lips. For better results, blend the lipstick in with your fingertip.
