Video QuickTip #51 - March 23, 2010

Put your best cheek forward!

While on tour in New Orleans, Brett and Reba set aside a minute to play pretty and show us their simple blush trick to get cheeks that really POP with definition and color.

It’s all about the CONTOUR, the BLUSH and the HIGHLIGHT.

You need the following tools:

  • tight contouring blush brush - Brett likes the MAC 116 brush.
  • fleshy face powder compact one shade darker than your natural color - Brett uses benefit get even pressed powder #3 on Reba!
  • pretty pink matte blush shade of your choice - Brett says to stick with fruity, juicy shades…nothing brown or ruddy!
  • champagne hued highlighter powder - Brett likes LORAC Perfectly Lit Powder in Luminous.

Brett's no-fail guide to getting chiseled, perfectly flushed cheeks:

CONTOUR - Start with the fleshy face powder and brush into the area where the cheekbone meets the hairline. Dot and smooth along inward underneath the cheek bone to the apple of the cheek.

BLUSH - Brush your blush shade of choice all along the cheekbone area.

HIGHLIGHT - For the finishing touch, add highlighting powder along the top of the cheekbone and on the apple of the cheek – it’ll really catch the light when you smile!

Smile pretty and let those cheeky apples of yours take focus!
