Holding your thin guide brush angled diagonally from the top corner of your ear and pushing against the hollow of your cheek, apply your favorite bronzer using your angled brush using a circular motion.

By using the thin brush as a guide, this allows the bronzer to be perfectly applied in a hurry and brings out the natural hollow in your cheek.

Next, look at your beautiful self in the mirror, show those happy grin lines and watch your apples pop! Using the same angled brush that you used for applying bronzer, apply your favorite blush in a circular motion on the apples of your cheeks.

You can stop here or make your cheek even more defined by adding any light or translucent powder right under your hollow following along the diagonal shape. Let this powder ‘bake.' In this case, 1 minute of setting works fine.
