HIGH RECOMMENDATION: Purchase a Beauty Blender ($20). There are dupes of the actual beauty blender that may cost less, however the official beauty blender truly gets the job done. The beauty blender is used to blend out any makeup product that you apply (foundation, concealer, etc.). Simply damp it, squeeze, and blend away for a flawless, finished look. Tip: Key to successful makeup is to nicely blend everything to a smooth finish
LETS BAKE! Bake with Laura Mercier's Translucent Loose Setting Powder ($38). In the glam world, baking is used to lock in your highlight and perfect those fine lines and imperfections.

Perfect to use for any skin tone, a little product goes a long way & has no flashback.
Once your foundation, highlight & contour is all done it's always key to piece everything together to be sure that all products connect nicely and overall look smooth & natural. To do so, take a fluffy blush & apply all over to the face Mac's Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder ($32). Available in several shades.
One of the best products to use for both bronzing & highlighting (glow) use is the Makeup Forever Pro Sculpting Duo ($39) in the color "Golden." This product is perfect because its a 2 in 1.

Use the bottom half to go back over those contour points to bronze up the face & give life back to any paleness!
To add a pop of color to the apple of the cheeks, apply Too Faced Love Flush Long Lasting Blush ($26) in the color "I Will Always Love You." This product has a peachy undertone that adds just the right amount of color. Perfect for any skin tone.
