Is the “Heavy Highlight” a look that you’ve been dying to try? I’ve got the map that will guide you to this angelic look! 

Begin with a light moisturizer. Using a moisturizer will allow the foundation and concealer to glide onto the skin.

Chanel Iman’s look is called “Heavy Highlighting.” When highlighting with a cream concealer or foundation to create this gorgeous halo effect through the center of the face, use a cream concealer that is 2 shades lighter than your face. Keeping your skin tone in mind , understand the range of color that is 2 shades lighter and 2 shades darker can be very broad. * Pro-Makeup Artist tip – If there is a big jump in color, use the next lightest shade and blend heavily with your foundation.

Add concealer under the eye, along the nose around the mouth and lips and over any skin that requires additional coverage. Always remember to blend thoroughly. 

Apply dime-sized drop foundation to the skin with a short haired brush in a circular motion. Blend entirely through the face and neck, not leaving streaks throughout the skin. Covering these areas of the face will give you a smooth complexion and a great base for your additional makeup like blush or bronzer.

Use a loose, fluffy powder brush to set your foundation, applying with a fluffy powder brush gives a soft and natural finish to a gently applied foundation. Set with M.A.C.’S Mineralized Skin Finish powder or bronzed powders for a sheer yet luminous glow.

Create a light contour by adding a matte, skin toned blush or bronzing powder along the hairline, temple, *Pro-Makeup Artist Tip – below the hallow in the cheek bone and along the jawline. Apply with an angled powder brush
