Dig out the hottest blush shade you own and rock a bright and bold cheek! Blending and placement of the color are essential to prevent the clown-effect, so build the layers until you’ve reached the desired intensity that you want. Remember- this look is focused on the cheek!

- What She Did: ”o achieve this contoured chiseled look… first I primed my skin w/ smashbox photo finish, then applied my MUFE HD foundation in 127 all over except my nose bridge, middle of forehead, and under eye. Then I applied MUFE HD foundation 120 in those empty areas. Blend blend blend! Next, I used my three custom concealer in shade #3 under eye in a backwards triangle shape to brighten the area. Set w/ Laura Mercier’s universal translucent powder. I used about 3 different bronzer’s (MAC -matte bronze, Smashbox – suntan matte, Erno Lazlo – Multi pHase bronzer ) They are all different in shades so I like to combine them for a dramatic gradient effect. I applied w/ my angled contour brush along the tops of forehead, temple, cheekbones, and jawline. For the side of nose bridge area.. I use my doe foot angle shadow brush to sharpen from below the brow bone to the nose. Highlight w/ my MAC shaping powder (pro palette) in accentuate.. along the center of forehead, nose bridge, under eye, chin, and above tops of cheek bones. Voila ;)”

- What She Did: ”Since this challenge was to create couture contours iI add 2 bronzers to the formnula, making it more dramatic, however my lighting is really bad and you can’t see the actual contour. Either way I had to participate.
To create the countour on my nose, jaw line, hollowof cheeks I used: NYC bronzer powder in Sunny and the bronzer from VS ultimate kit. To contrast the shadow created to countour I add a lot of highlight on my nose, top of my cheeks, forehead, browbone, cupids bow and chin.”
