-Warm the product between your fingers and pat over imperfections for second-skin-like correction.

Go multidimensional by contouring with color:
-Apply lighter shades to accentuate the tops of cheekbones, temples, and the bridge of the nose.
-Swipe darker tones on the cheeks, jawline, underneath the nose, and the crease of the eye for depth.
Enhance your skin’s natural warmth for a glowing look:
-Apply warm-toned shades across the cheekbones, jawline, bridge of the nose, and around the eyes to bring attention to the center of the face.
-Dust a brighter hue onto the apples of the cheeks and above the arch of the brow.
Go fashion-forward with this unexpected technique:
-Apply blush along the brow bone, moving toward the outer edges.
-Swipe down along the high point of the cheekbone, creating a “7” shape around the eye.
