"Apply the darker shade from the compact, using sweeping brush strokes, under the cheekbones, on the edges of the forehead and just underneath the jawline to create a creamy contour and sculpted finish. Blend, blend, blend until subtle traces of the contour color is left behind so that the contour effects appear natural, not streaky."

"The softness and angle of this brush is great for sculpting cheeks. To apply, suck in your cheeks, and starting from the ear, apply the cream bronzer along the hollowed out portion of your face to the middle of your cheek. Start off with a light application, then build and blend the cream color until you have reached your desired intensity."
