1. Contour First — Even Before Foundation!
This may seem counterintuitive, but Scott likes to contour the face first and then apply foundation on top for the most natural finish.

Apply the powder with a stout brush wherever you want to add dimension, like under the cheekbones, the jawline, down the nose, in the inner corners of your eye, on the brow bone and along the hairline. Most importantly, says Scott, don’t forget to add a bit of color to your neck!See Full Gallery
