HOW TO


1. BEFORE:

PRIME, PERFECT, CONCEAL, AND SET with LORAC’s POREfection® Complexion system.

 

 

2. FIND CHEEKBONES:

The hollow of the cheek is under the cheekbone, suck in your cheeks to find the hollows.

 

 

3. SCULPT CHEEKBONE:

Use the domed top of the PRO Contour Brush to apply your desired shade of contour following the hollow of the cheek.

  

4. SCULPT NOSE:

To thin and sculpt the nose, apply a PRO CONTOUR shade in a line along the sides of the bridge, starting at the eyebrow and inner eye area down to the nose tip. To shorten and create a perfect shape, shade around and under the tip of the nose.

5. SCULPT JAWLINE:

Use the domed top of the PRO Contour Brush to apply a PRO CONTOUR shade along the jawline. For a chiseled effect, start at the back of the jaw near the bottom of the ear, sweeping along the entire jawline.

  

6. SCULPT CHIN:

Apply a PRO CONTOUR shade under the chin and blend slightly onto the neck. To shorten a long face, add contour to the tip of the chin.

 

7. SCULPT HAIRLINE:

Use the flat side of the PRO Contour Brush to apply a PRO CONTOUR shade around the hairline to minimize the forehead. Apply to the temples to slim down the face.

 

8. HIGHLIGHT FOREHEAD:

Apply a HIGHLIGHT shade of your choice with the flat side of the PRO Contour Brush to the middle of the forehead and between the brows to brighten the face.

 

9. HIGHLIGHT UNDEREYES and NOSE:

Apply a MATTE HIGHLIGHT shade under eyes in a triangle shape. Start at the inner corner under lower lashes, bring it down onto the face near the nose, and then diagonally up towards the temples. Add SHIMMER HIGHLIGHT down the bridge to accentuate the high points of the nose.

10. BLEND AND BLUSH:

Thoroughly wipe off the brush before blending. Blend well to avoid any harsh lines. Finish with Baked Matte Satin Blush in VELVET ROPE and Alter Ego Lip Gloss in DUCHESS.
