Baking

“Begin by applying a blendable concealer over the entirety of your T-zone, as well as under your eyes, and follow with a yellow-toned loose powder directly over the top. Allow the mixture to sit for about 10 minutes on your skin, using your body’s natural heat to “bake” the products, then use a fluffy brush to sweep away any excess powder.”

Contouring

“Apply your foundation and powder as normal, then use a dense brush to apply a darker powder in the hollows of your cheekbones. Buff out the color with a fluffy brush or makeup sponge, and after a light dusting of bronzer, blend a touch of highlighting cream or powder just over the top.”

Strobing

“Pick up your favorite highlighter—whether you choose a cream or powder formula is up to you—and blend the product over the high points of your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose, and onto your cupid’s bow. Make sure to use a very light hand and build up the intensity slowly.”

Cut-Crease Eye Shadow

“Begin by applying your base color, then use a liquid liner pen to sweep on a dramatic cat-eye—the wing will help with placement of the cut-crease effect. With an angled brush dipped in a neutral shadow color, create a curve just above your natural crease until it connects with the edge of your wing. Follow by working a dome-tipped brush over the line, making sure to blend upwards in order to emphasize the shape, working additional shades over the top as you see fit.”

Over-Lining

“Let the absence of MAC Spice lip pencils ($17;maccosmetics.com) from store shelves serve as proof that the art of over-lining your lips has officially become a trending topic. If you’re aiming for a more natural finish, trace the exterior of your pout with a lip liner with no red pigment, like the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics shade Sebastian ($16; nordstrom.com), then pick up the neutral of your choice to fill in the blank space.”
