Christmas comes and goes in the blink of an eye. Presents get unwrapped at the speed of light, the food is devoured in record timing and before you know it you’ll be bringing in the New Year. So, as the Christmas lights flash before your eyes, make sure you’re not missing any of it doing your makeup!
No one wants to miss the crackers being pulled or the champagne being popped, so a quick and easy way to achieve an effortlessly sculpted look sounds like a Christmas wish answered to me. A simple way to make a big difference to your makeup, this sculpting tutorial will ensure your cheekbones glisten and your contour wows.
Step 1: Carve Those Cheekbones!
Use the angled side of the Laura Geller dual-ended brush and the centre of the Baked Sculpting Bronzer to achieve a perfectly sculpted look. Sweep the silky-smooth powder in a three shape on your face. Begin by dusting the powder around your forehead, then underneath your cheek bones and finishing on your jaw line.
Quick tip: If you’re unsure how to find your cheekbone, roll your brush upwards on your cheek. You will feel your brush naturally stop underneath your cheekbones.
Step 2: Add Some Radiance
Now that you’ve brought a little warmth to your complexion it’s time to give yourself a radiant glow - you’ll need it after a few festive nights out! Take the second darkest shade from the Baked Sculpting Bronzer and sweep this on all the high points of your face, the sides of your forehead, your cheek bones and down the centre of your nose.
Quick tip: If you’re wondering what the high points of your face are, just think about the places that you tend to catch the sun first – all those dreaded red areas when you’ve been in the sun too long!
Step 3: Shine The Spotlight
If Christmas isn’t the perfect excuse for an extra bit of highlighter then what is? Let’s take it up a notch and ensure our glow is the talk of the party. Flip your dual-ended brush around and place the sponge in the lightest shade of the Baked Sculpting Bronzer. Concentrate this highlight on your cheekbone and your cupids bow, it will give you an ethereal glow that no one will be able to take their eyes off.
You’ve contoured, now go conquer! Don’t forget to pop your Baked Sculpting Bronzer and Dual-ended Brush in your handbag for on-the-go touch-ups.
