1.) Start with your base: Prime and moisturize your face to ensure an even surface for your foundation. Put concealer on any dark spots on your face or neck that you’d like to conceal. Blend out your concealer with a damp beauty sponge or blending brush. Apply foundation to your face and blend it out. Now is the time to do your brows as well!

Step 1. Base and brows

2.) Apply shade Haystacks (dark cool-toned brown) from the Impressionism Palette to your crease and blend it out into a point at the outer corner of your eye. Blend Giverny (warm tan) into the outside of the shape you created and add it to your under-eye.

Step 2. Eyeshadow time

3.) Here’s where the fun comes in! Use Haystacks where you might contour in streaks. This includes on the sides of your nose, under your cheekbones, and under your chin. Then use shade Giverny to add streaks around the rest of your face and neck. It’s important to have the streaks flow, so have the lines follow the natural contours of your face.

Step 3. Begin painting your face in streaks

4.) Continue adding Haystacks to add definition to your face. Add shade Dancers (orange) following the same pattern you created with Giverny. Add Wisp (shimmery champagne) to your cheekbones, tip of your nose, and cupid’s bow.

Step 4. Continue adding more streaks of eyeshadow

5.) Add accents of shades Almond (a sky blue) and Parasol (pastel green) following the pattern you created.

Step 5. Add green and blue shading

6.) Use shade Manet of Lip Sketch to line your lips. Then to top it off, apply shade Cézanne of Lip Glaze (or a peach lip gloss).
