Hello ladies! So here is a little 15 second how-to on my contouring when I go out to an important event. I have used the Anastasia concealers in 1.5 to highlight and 4.5 to contour using my foundation brush and duo-fiber brush both by Elaina Badro and blended it out using my Beauty Blender. Now, depending on how strong or light you want your contour, you need to blend less/more. I then used my Anastasia Contour Palette in "banana" to set in all the areas I have highlighted my face. For the rest of my face, I've used the Ben Nye "banana" powder with my damp sponge to set in my skin without giving too much color. If you want your contour to stand out more, then I suggest you going back at it with a powder contour (the contour colors in the palette will do or a matte bronzer) to emphasize your structure. I then took the "sand" shimmer powder, again from the Anastasia contour kit to highlight just the tops of my cheekbones. Take the color of blush you desire & add it to the apples of your cheeks blending up towards your hairline. Here, I have used one of my favorite blushes from Lorac called "Coral Crush" (super pigmented!). I know this 15-second video is way too short to capture everything, but watch it enough and you'll catch the concept ;) HOWEVER, I will be doing a YouTube tutorial next week and you will be able to see the entire process in slow motion. Hope this helps in the meantime!
