Barely there, clever contouring for a more natural finish, but which still makes cheekbones pop… the secret?

It's all about the layering. Prime first, contour second, then add blush and layer foundation on top says Mary Phillips, makeup artist to Hailey Bieber and Kendall Jenner. This approach reduces the layers of makeup sitting on top of each other creating a seamless, natural looking complexion. Here's our favourite pieces to create the look.
