Step 13. Apply a finishing powder in matte bronze with a brush to contour the cheeks. Ask your client to suck in her cheeks to see the natural contour of the cheekbones, and brush up along this contour to give definition to the face.
Step 14: Apply a baked blush with a blush brush along the apples of the cheeks, sweeping the color upward toward the temples to create a lift.
Step 15: Apply a long-lasting lip liner in a shade that is one to two shades deeper than the client’s natural lip color and in a hue that is slightly warm. Avoid using lip color with blue undertones, because they can make lips appear dull. Line and fill the entire lip to help lip color last longer.
Step 16: Finish by adding a lightweight lipstick with a lip brush in the desired shade.
