Everyone wants a insta contour (quick & like the infamous Instagram MUA's - pun intended) but when explained the amount of products and brushes needed a clients motivation quickly fades.
Today in my #travelingmua world we focused on quick contouring tips for bridesmaids. This look is also easy enough that it can be used for everyday contour.

& a hair tie... yes a hair tie
Active Light #6 is best because of its brown base color.
The flat headed Handi Brush (made of goat hair) makes a great blending tool when it's bristles are dense.
Either size hair tie will work but the smaller (left) works best for me.

Draw a line under the cheekbone, with Active Light #6) as if it were a shadow of your cheekbone.
Wrap your hair tie tight around the metal part of your brush.
Slowly push it up to the middle of your brush bristles... very slow or it will shoot across the room like it does when I am in a hurry... (that's always)
Once the tip of your brush feels dense, use it to blend out the line of Active Light #6 you just striped on the face.

The key is to keep the brush on the skin and move it in small circular motions for the perfect blend.
