From celebs to professional makeup artists, contouring is all the makeup rage. Are you after a sculpted look, chiseled cheekbones and perfectly enhanced features? Worry not. This technique isn’t as tricky as one might think.

Take a front row seat and follow along on our easy steps to master this method all on your own. All it takes is the right Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics products, brushes and techniques and you’ll be well on your way to taking your trendiness to the next level.


Let’s get started:

STEP 1: Use any synthetic contour brush and use light strokes in the hollow of the cheekbones.
STEP 2: Apply bronzer using light strokes in the hollow of cheekbones.
STEP 3: Blend in upward motions.
STEP 4: Next take a yellow banana powder under the eyes.
STEP 5:  Apply any blush onto the apples of the cheeks.
STEP 6: Using a fan brush, tap into a shimmer highlighting powder and highlight above the cheekbone.
STEP 7: Apply the shimmer highlight to all high points of the face.
STEP 8: Use a setting spray to insure look will last all day.
