Blend out the blue with a warm dark brown eyeshadow on a fluffy brush. Lorella chrome flakes in “baby girl” are going right up against the lash line to add dimension.

After foundation, I’m going straight into contouring and highlight. Cream products are great because they blend right into the skin to facilitate a snatched and sculpted effect. Try using a smaller brush to apply highlighter, You’ll have more control of the product and placement.

Use bronzer to blend the highlight and contour together. Brown girls need bronzer too!

Now it’s time for “Chestnut” lip liner and “Bronx” lipstick from MAC. I added two tones of lip gloss on top to achieve the ultimate glossy nude. And that’s all there is to it!
