According to Prince, when the skin has no color You have to look for the ‘bonne mine’ effect, and to do this, simply apply the product by drawing a “W”. Start at the temple, at eye level, and draw a downward curve below the cheekbone. Then go up to the point between the eyebrows and repeat the same gesture on the other side of the face. For a more natural result, then blend following the same path, making soft, circular movements with the brush.
if you want to use them as a tool of contouring to mark the cheekbones and sculpt features, the makeup artist explains that you have to draw a “three” from the forehead -always starting from the root of the hair-, and continue below the cheekbone to finish under the chin. It is convenient to finish by drawing a triangle on the neck, a gesture that stylizes and lengthens the features even more. Blend the color by working it in a circular way and following the same line made at the beginning.
And finally, if your goal is sublimate the bronzer, the expert’s advice is to lighten the product brush and draw small “eights” all over the face. Start at the root of the hair and at the temples, working down the contour of the face to create depth – from the forehead, down to the chin and continuing to the other side of the face. Without adding more product, it is important to trace with the brush two large figure eights in the central area of the face to illuminate.
Yes indeed, whatever effect you are looking for, use a wide, rounded brush like the new Guerlain Terracotta Kabuki Brush to be able to distribute the color evenly and without the risk of leaving lines of demarcation on the face.
Only the upper end of the brush should not be used. Must roll it between your fingers while applying the color to spread it evenly on the sides as well.
The brand assures us that if the application does not tickle, something is being done wrong. The brush should barely touch the skin if you want to achieve a transparent and natural effect.
