Start by creating a flushed, dewy face to offset the rough, metallic texture of the eyes. After applying your foundation, dab on a pink cheek stain such as Benefit Posie Tint and quickly buff into your cheeks in a circular motion. Make sure you do this quickly, or else the stain will set and create unwanted patches of colour. Next, apply a highlighting cream, like Benefit High Beam, onto your cheekbones. Again, speed is your friend: rub quickly with your fingers, blending it slightly downwards to create a smooth gradient between the highlighter and the cheek stain.
