When it comes to contouring, many pros have issued the warning “Do not try this at home.” But by using three shades of blush, you can get a super soft sculpt to your cheeks; no scary brown powders necessary.
Start by selecting your arsenal. You’ll need three complementary blushes: your favorite blush, a slightly darker version of your favorite blush, and a lighter version of your favorite blush.
Follow these four steps:
1) Start with your favorite blush on the apples of your cheeks.
2) Then use your slightly darker blush just beneath your cheekbone, inside the hollows of your cheeks.
3) With a blending brush, buff along the area where cheek blush and contouring blush meet.
4) Finish with your lightest blush as a highlight on the highest point of your cheekbones

Surely Not!” So we tried every sculpting trick in the book, and found true love (and true perfection) with this three complimentary shades of blush technique.
