You need:

  • Bronzer
  • Highlighter
  • Beauty blender

How to:

Step 1: Take your bronzer and draw a ‘3’ on both sides of your face; starting from your temples, moving on to the area under your cheekbones and ending on your jawline. 

Step 2: Next take your highlighter and draw an inverted ‘3’ starting right above your brows, middle line on your cheekbones and bottom line above your jawline. This one should look like its hugging bronzer mark.

Step 3: Take your beauty blender and blend well so there are no harsh lines. And, you’re done! Easy, wasn’t it?
