Contouring your cheeks
Hold your thumb near your ear to locate your cheekbone, just below that bone is where you will shade. Choosing a face powder in a colour that’s one to two shades darker than your natural skin tone and using an angled blush brush, sweep it towards your nose. The colour should be strong close to the ear, but should soften as you work towards the nose into nothing.
