Contour + Highlight with TRUE Cosmetics

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.

Neither do we. Some of our clients have been traumatized by a visit to a department store makeup counter. Properly applied, you should not see or feel your foundation.
