1. Use powder a shade lighter than one’s skin tone to highlight the features you like, and a bronzer to create shadows or recede the outer areas of the face.

3. To lessen the visibility of a double chin, apply some powder in a shade darker than one’s skin tone, then blend from the chin towards the neck.

4. To give face a more oval shape, brush bronzer just below the ears tracing down the jaw line.

5. An angled brush makes for an easier and controlled application. Blend properly using round strokes after color application to make it look subtle and seamless.
