Your bronzer and highlight is your burger buns and the blush is your filling in your burger 👌🏼
Here's the rundown of application
Bronzer: Sun-Kissed Radiance
Bronzer is like sunshine in a compact. It's your ticket to a healthy, sun-kissed glow, no matter the season. Here's how to make the most of it
Application Technique: Always start with a small amount of product on your tapered brush.
Apply bronzer starting where your cheek bone meets your hairline/ear, softly blend your bronzer along your cheekbone and stopping at the apples of your cheeks.
Compelete the look: Add bronzer along your hairline and temple area, corner of your forehead and down your neck will give you a complete naural radiant look.
Less is More: Start with a light-hand and a light-amount of product is key to a seamless blend. You can always add more, but it's tricky to tone it down if you apply too much. Apply bronzer in layers until you reach your desired intensity. With every new layer of bronzer use a slighty bigger oval motion to create a seamless look.

Highlight: Be the Light
Highlighter adds dimension and luminosity to your face, making you look like you're lit from within!
Placement: Start by sweeping the side of your tapered brush along your highlighter. Apply highlighter to the high points of cheeks using the same gentle side-sweeping motion to the tops of your cheekbones, bridge of your nose, cupid's bow, and a touch on your brow bone.
Blend, Blend, Blend: Use a light hand when applying highlighter, and blend it well to avoid harsh lines. You want a subtle, radiant glow.

Blush: A Pop of Color
Blush is your secret weapon for a healthy flush of colour. It's all about getting that rosy, peachy, plumy (shades depend on your skintone) youthful glow.
Placement: Apply blush from slightly higher than your bronzer starting point and blend slightly downwards towards the apples of your cheeks and for a natural flush.
