Behold, the power of makeup!
Your shadow zones refer to your temples, hollows of your cheekbones, sides of the nose and jawline. Light zones include the upper cheekbones, nose bridge, Cupid’s bow and brow bones. Before contouring, apply primer so it lasts the whole day. For a natural look, use a darker shade of foundation instead of bronzer.
Start by applying foundation, leaving the hollows of your cheeks bare (suck your cheeks in to find the sunken part beneath your cheekbones). Then apply a darker foundation on the hollow areas. Use a brush or your fingers to blend for a seamless contour. Finally, use illuminator or concealer two shades lighter (for a really natural look) on your light zones and set with loose powder.
