This Might Be the Easiest, All-Natural Contouring Ever

Raise your hand if you get a little intimidated when you hear the term "contour." We get it: so many brushes and products, so little time. But Birchbox staffer (and contouring queen) Deepica Mutyala found a fast and easy way to shade and highlight your facewith natural products, no less. How? By skillfully wielding three of W3LL PEOPLE'S multi-purpose organic foundation, blush, and highlighter sticks. The lightweight, cream-based makeup leaves skin looking luminous and dewy, while the pigmented formula emphasizes your best features. Watch her tutorial and follow the simple steps below to master this gorgeous contoured look.

1. Prep

Use the Narcissist Stick Foundation to give your skin an even complexion (Deepica used 6 - Dark Neutral).

2. Contour

Using the same stick in a shade darker than your skin tone, draw the shape of the number 3 on your face (starting at your hairline, coloring into the hollows of your cheeks, and finishing along your jaw line). Add two lines on the side of your nose for a slimming effect.

3. Conceal

Fill in all the remaining empty space on your faceunder your eyes, chin, brows, above your lip, and the bridge of your nosewith the foundation stick in a shade lighter than your skin tone.

4. Blush

Apply the Universalist Multi-Use Color Stick (she used 8 - Creamy Dusty Rose) to the apples of your cheeks. You can also use it to give your lips a little color.

5. Blend

Use a foundation brush like this one to blend all of the pigmented color together.

6. Highlight

Tap your fingers on the Bio Brightener Stick, then rub the highlighter onto your cheekbones and under your brows.
