Applying highlight

Use a light shade of concealer to create your highlights.

Here, I’m using the stick end of a makeup brush to create the upward lines under the eyes for the lifted look.

Make a parallel line starting from the corner of your lip.

2. Apply bronzer

3. Apply blush, then blend

Apply 3 dots of blush above the contour dots.

Then, use a makeup brush to blend in place, starting with the highlights.


Next, use the same brush to blend the bronzer line.


Finally, use a slightly larger brush to blend the blush dots.

    Sides look the same. Lets try this "trick" on a 60 yr old woman & see how well that works. No 20s something needs a facelift.

      You're so right. I can't believe that 20 & 30 somethings think they're so old that they get Botox. Crazy.

    You are very pretty honey but all you're doing is adding blush as far as us older ladies are concerned. Been there done that!
