One of my “Favorite Things Right Now” is contouring cheeks with a dark brown eye shadow (Wenge by TRUE Cosmetics) and highlighting with a peachy shimmer (Apricot blush by TRUE Cosmetics) for a natural and defined spring/summer look. The trick is this Shadow Diffuser brush, which is a shape that I haven’t found elsewhere and TRUE equates to a fan brush. It’s soft and fluffy which is great for blending or applying a light wash of color to eyes or cheeks. When contouring cheeks, hold the brush horizontally so that the thin rectangular shape creates a nice line along the hollow of the cheek (from your ear to the corner of your mouth). Then, highlight by holding the brush vertically and sweeping the wide end along the cheekbone, making sure to overlap with the contour line to blend. It will also contour the sides of the nose and define a jawline nicely.
I’ve been asked lots of great questions about applying mineral foundation over the years. Mineral foundation is different from setting powders that you might apply with a sponge. If you’re new to beingTRUE mineral foundation — or new to wearing makeup, period — you may find this helpful.
