Instructions
1. Use a metal spatula to remove a small amount of lipstick from the tube. Place the decanted lipstick onto a metal mixing palette, and then use the lip brush to apply the product to your lips.
2. Apply bronzer to the upper portion of your cheek with a fluffy cheek brush. Use a blending brush to apply bronzer to the crease of your eyelid. This will give the eye more dimension.
3. Dip the eyeliner brush into the gel eyeliner, and then apply it to the upper waterline below the lashes. This “tightlining” technique will make your lashes look fuller without minimizing lid space. Switch brushes and dip the angled brow brush into the gel eyeliner. Carefully brush the product through your brows to make them look fuller.
4. Reduce the likelihood of eye shadow fallout by applying pigment with a small, flat paint brush. The small head easily reaches tight spaces without depositing pigment onto unintended areas.
