Hailey Bieber always looks super glamorous when you see her on the red carpet. But on normal days when she’s out and about with her husband (or her famous friends like Kendall Jenner), she’s usually a little more au naturel—fresh-faced, hair in a bun, and looking cool in an oversized jacket.
If this is your aesthetic, then you’re going to love this fab makeup trick that we discovered from Hailey herself. When dishing about her beauty tips at a BareMinerals event, the Insta-famous model and said that she likes to use this foundation stick since it’s an awesome multi-tasker that you can also use to conceal and contour.
Even if she is (full disclosure) a brand ambassador for BareMinerals, we have to admit that when we saw the glow she got from using that foundation, it was pretty impressive. Just check out the evidence below when she used it during her recent Met Gala appearance!
But here’s what we really want to talk about. During the BareMinerals event, Hailey also shared this cool sculpting trick that she uses to help enhance her fabulous cheekbones: “If I’m going to an event or want to elevate my look I love using a darker shade of the [foundation stick] to contour,” Mrs. Bieber revealed via Harper’s Bazaar.
What we love about this beauty move (aside from the fact that you get a more natural-looking contour) is that you can avoid any caking or pilling since you’ll be using the same foundation formula. And since your skin color can change from time to time, investing in a darker foundation shade can still come in handy since you can use it whenever you’re a little more tan.
