Love to contour? In just two steps you can be on your way to a natural look you can wear day or night! Our Head of Innovation, Christy Coleman, shows us how to enhance your cheekbones and create a beautiful glow that won’t leave you looking like a cake. 😉

To achieve this look, you’ll need the Color Sweep Blush Duo in the shade Tawny/Whisper. This is a powder blush made without any undetectable heavy metals (i.e. lead) that have the potential to cause reproductive, immune and nervous system toxicity. You’ll also need the Angled Blush Brush, made with soft taklon bristles, which was designed to be used with the blush duo. Taklon is a synthetic polyester fiber that is soft, smooth and does not cause any allergies, unlike other makeup brushes that are made with animal hair.

Follow these three steps to get the perfect look!

Step One:

Make sure to apply any foundation first, before applying the blush.

Step Two:

For definition, use the brush to apply Tawny (browner color) along the bottom contour of your cheeks.

Step Three:

Smile and dab Whisper (pinker color) directly to the apples of your cheeks. You should gently blending outward and upward.
