Read on to see two tutorials I’ve made just for you GLOSSIES. In it I show how you can use your shimmering shell brush to bronze and contour, and how also highlight your face and body.
Tutorial 1: Contour and Bronze
The Shell brush is perfect for precision contouring and bronzing. Bronzer is a must-have for a healthy, sun-kissed glow. I also use a bronzer to subtly define features too. The velvety finish of this Chanel Bronzer, £40, leaves your skin with a beautiful sun-bathed look.
I apply this lightly onto places where you’d usually contour: under the cheek bones, on the hairline, the temples, the sides of your nose and your jawline. The thin edge of the Shell Brush makes this really easy! Of course, blending is key so blend, blend and blend again to get a subtle look.
1. Apply bronzer under your cheekbones, in your hairline and on your nose
2. Apply bronzer on your jawline for a chiselled look
3. I then used the Shell Cheek Brush to add very subtle definition to my features, nothing to heavy or obvious.
Tutorial 2: Highlight Your Face and Body
Highlighter is a must-have in the summer and it’s my favourite way to add a healthy glow. Although cheekbones definitely get the most attention when it comes to highlighter, I don’t stop there, I also love to highlight my cupid’s bow, my nose and my collarbones to add definition and shimmer for a special event!
I love the MAC Highlighter Palette from the brand’s Hyperreal range.
I adore this trio of pearlescent hues – they add such a high impact sheen!
