Step 1: Apply shadow primer and set with setting powder.

Step 2: Use a piece of tape on the side of each eye to help with precision and clean lines (feel free to skip this step if you'd like).

Step 3: Using the shade Combust as a transition shade, blend into your crease area.

Step 4: Using the shade Whiskey in the crease, blend into Combust and add depth to the crease and outer v area of the lid,

Step 5: Using the shade Dirty Sweet with a wet brush, apply directly to lid area and lightly blend into Whiskey (if needed, go over crease again with Whiskey to facilitate blending and to create separation between shades)

Step 6: Apply liquid liner, remove tape.

Step 7: Mix together Primer, Foundation and Liquid Illuminator on a palette or back of hand, apply to face using foundation brush and blend out with a beauty sponge.

Step 8: Add a few drops of oil to cream contour and highlight shades, apply contour shades underneath cheekbones, under the chin and to the perimeter of the face and blend out with a beauty sponge.

Step 9: Apply highlight underneath the eyes in an upside down triangle shape, underneath lips on the chin area, on the forehead and underneath the cheekbones below the contour lines you created in the previous step and blend out with a beauty sponge.

Step 10: Set under eye with setting powder and let it "bake" while applying the next few steps,

Step 11: Set the rest of your face with setting powder.

Step 12: Use the powder contour shade to go over the areas where you put the cream contour down for added definition and depth.

Step 13: Use the powder highlight shade to go over the areas where you put the cream highlight down and brush away the remaining setting powder from the under eye area.

Step 14: Using Whiskey, smudge into the bottom lash line and blend/smoke out with Combust.

Step 15: Using High, apply to brow bone and inner eye corner for highlight.

Step 16: Apply bronzer on the cheeks, forehead and under the chin and blend into your contour for added warmth.

Step 17: Apply highlighter to top of the cheekbones, cupids bow and bridge of the nose.

Step 18: Apply blush to the apples of cheeks and blend into highlight and contour.

Step 19: Set with setting spray (apply more highlighter to damp skin for an even bolder glow).

Step 20: Apply mascara to top and bottom lashes.

Step 21: Apply false lashes (optional).

Step 22: Apply lipstick.
