Instructions
1. Squirt a couple of pumps of your AOA BB Cream onto the back of your hand. Add a drop of your AOA Glow Baby Illuminating liquid highlighter and mix the two products together with your fingers. Make sure the makeup is mixed, but not soaked into your skin.
2. Once the products are successfully mixed, apply the mixture to your skin in the same way you would with moisturizer. By the end, you should have a light, even coverage.
3. Add the Colorpop No Filter Matte Concealer under your eyes, on the bridge of your nose and between your brows using the product's wand. Blend the product in with a concealer brush. This should create a bright look in normally darker areas of the face.
4. Using your LA Colors Contour Stick, drag the product just below your cheekbones, on your temple and your jawline. Use a contour brush to blend in the strokes to create subtle shadows.
5. Grab your Smoke and Mirrors Cheek & Lip Stain in shade Desire and dab the product onto your cheeks. You only need a small drop which you will blend in with your fingers to create a natural, blushed cheek. Once complete, add the product to your lips, lightly dabbing the stain into your pout until even coverage is achieved.
6. Apply your AOA Diamond Lipgloss in shade GRL PWR on top of your lip stain. Make sure to press your lips together to ensure the lipgloss is evenly spread. If you have accidentally applied too much, use a cotton pad to dab off any excess.
7. Using your fingers, apply the LA Girl Glown' Up Jelly Highlighter to your cheekbones, temples and the bridge of your nose. The outcome should be light, natural and fresh.
