Ever wonder how to minimize your forehead, sculpt your cheekbones or create a jawline—minus the surgery? Celebrity makeup artist Jai Williams shares his step-by-step guide to creating a close-up-worthy face.
Six Steps to a Great Face
1 Prep the skin with a pore-minimizing primer for a lasting look.
2 Decide which formulation is best for you: Liquid or cream? Matte or glossy? For seamless blending, select products that are the same type.
3 Choose both a lighter shade and a darker shade of foundation, concealer or a foundation/concealer combo.
4 Apply the lighter hue to the areas to be highlighted, then follow with the darker hue for the areas to be contoured.
5 Combine with your fingers, a makeup brush or a sponge—whatever you feel most comfortable using.
6 Finish with a talc-free translucent setting powder or bronzer to avoid an ashy appearance.
