basic application techniques
face primer/foundation //
face primer should be applied before any other product, however, it is optional & not necessary. if you wish to use concealer to conceal any blemishes or redness on your skin, you can dot those places with concealer & blend in either before or after foundation application. brushes you need for this: concealer brush, foundation or stippling brush
bronzer should be swept in a c shape around your eye & then back down over your jaw line using a bronzer brush or a similar product.
contour/blush/highlight, in that order
when it comes to contour product, blush, & luminizers, they all use the same type of brush & have only slightly different methods of application. you will need an all-purpose contour/blush/highlight brush for this.
once you have applied your highlight, it’s good to set the face with either a setting spray such as Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray or a pressed powder like Makeup Forever’s HD Pressed Powder using a powder brush. any excess powder can be swept off the face with a kabuki brush. i hope this helped! feel free to add to this post.
