  3. Rim the inner waterline with the black pencil.
  4. Sweep the gold shadow along the crease of the upper lid.

  6. Contour your cheeks with the bronzer. Revisit my Contouring 101 Tutorial if needed. Then apply the highlighter above the cheekbones.
  7. Finish by painting your lips directly from the tube or with a lip brush for more precision.
