How to do it?

Step 1: Start by brushing some blush on your cheekbones. But use a contour brush to do this instead of your regular blush brush.

Step 2: Contour powder not only highlights your cheekbones but also sculpts the temples to give a more defined look. Draping is no different, use the brush to blend the product upwards towards your temples to get more definition.

Step 3: Since this is your first time, there’s a possibility that you might end up with too much blush on your face. An easy way to make it less visible is by dipping your brush in some loose setting powder and gently blending it on top of the blush.
