A Cheekier You

26Apr10

Yaay! My first Tutorial!

Please excuse the fact that it was 2AM in Dubai and I had no makeup on! 🙂 enjoy!

Step by step instructions:
1.Start by covering the area with foundation, I used Studio Fix Fluid Foundation from MAC in NC43
2. From the area above your cheekbones apply a significantly lighter foundation or concealer, like MAC Mouisturecover (NW20), make sure this is warm even if you are olive
3. Using the 187 brush from MAC, set everything in with the Mineralize SkinFinish Natural Powder from MAC (Medium Dark)
4. Using the MAC 188 brush, powder the cheeks with a lighter shade of powder, I used the Sculpting Kit from Makeup Forever
in 4
5. Next use the dark color from the sculpting kit to define cheekbones, use the 187 brush to blend out the area on top making it appear smooth
6. ApplyMAC blush to the apple of the cheeks using a blush brush

Finish by blending any unsmooth areas with the 187 brush and add highlighter if desired

    Hi,

    First of all, I love your blog and I have been following it since last 2 months. I enjoy reading all your posts. I have a quick question for u regarding foudation and highlighting cheeks. I’m NC 42-40 in Mineralize liquid skinfinish foundation( depending on my face tan)….I generally apply one lighter shade of foundation i.e NC 40. I saw your video regarding foundation routine and after watching that I went to the MAC store and the make up artist who was assisting told me that I can’t apply NW 20 concealer and I sounded greek to her. I applied NW 20 concealer to highlight my cheeks but I’m unsure about the best shade which will go my skintone. Can you please suggest the best shade for me.. Please suggest me how can I highlight my cheekbones. bones.

  2. I’m not able to view the video… 😦
