I have quite dry skin so I always start by applying a moisturiser to my face, my personal favourite is Nivea Creme. It’s quite thick but I just use a light layer. Once I’ve done that I put a thin layer of BB cream on, I do this because it helps to even out my skin tone, create a lovely glow and also its SPF30 and I’m not sure if the eBay palette has any sunscreen it in.
Once done I use a shade lighter than my complexion to highlight around my eyes, forehead, nose, lips and a touch on my cheeks. I then use a colour that’s darker than my skin to create definition around the edges of my forehead, my nose, my jawline and I also suck my cheeks in to define my cheekbones. Take a look at the picture to see the finished war paint!
Now it’s time to blend, blend, blend! I always try to do this in the best light possible to avoid being left with an odd looking skin tone.
As the eBay palette is quite creamy, I powder my face with the Stay Matte pressed powder to avoid shine and then bronze my cheeks with my favourite bronzer from Accessorize. It’s not an essential but sometimes I add a light concealer under my eyes and nose at this point just to rehighlight those areas (Quick tip: make sure it’s only lightly applied otherwise it is way too creamy!). And voila contouring is complete and I’m now ready for my eyebrows and lips!
