Step 4: Use a mini kabuki brush to apply pressed mineral blush; choose the shade based on the client’s coloring. Find the apples of the cheeks by asking the client to smile. Blow off any excess powder from the brush, and lightly circle the cheek and sweep up to the temple into the hair line. Use a light amount of blush, and layer it to get the desired saturation.

Step 5: Apply lip gloss to the pout and the cupid’s bow, and blot. Provide a take-home makeup retail offering—a compact that includes a blush, an eye shadow, a highlighter and two lip colors in a fool-proof color scheme so the client can have everything she needs for her face in her purse or gym bag.
