Contouring is one of those popular beauty trends that’s still pretty intimidating to regular women. Sure, makeup artists and beauty vloggers make it seem simple, but it’s so easy to from sculpted to scary that most women avoid contouring altogether.

But we’re here to prove that defining your cheekbones with a little contouring magic is a lot easier than you think. Yes, you can do it! All it requires is one product, one makeup brush and you’ll be on your way to the cheekbones of your dreams. Here’s what to do:

Step 1: Start with the right shade bronzer for your skin tone and a brush that you can use to apply it smoothly. We recommend a bronzing brush.

Step 2: Find the hollow point in your cheeks. It is different for everyone, but should be somewhere between your jaw and highest cheekbone.

Step 3: Sweep your bronzing brush into the bronzer and tap off any excess. To apply it to your face, lightly sweep it back and forth from the beginning of your hollow point to the center of your face.

Pro tip: If the product isn’t blending after a few strokes, continue the sweeping motion without adding any more bronzer to the brush. The last thing you want is harsh, dark lines on your face!

If you really want to see for yourself how easy it is to contour, watch Drew Barrymore do it! She proves it’s so simple and makes such a big difference.
