Instructions for use: Apply with a blush brush to the contours of your face. This long-lasting powder only needs to be used sparingly. For best effect, apply only to the contours of your face, starting from the top of the forehead along your hairline, down and along your cheekbones and finishing at the underside of your jawbone, drawing in the pattern of the number 3 on each side of your face. Disguise a wide nose by applying on either side of your nose, or for a long nose, apply down the bone.
Zao Beauty tip: Do not apply all over face as this can harden your features. Simply apply to areas that normally catch the sun for a natural summery glow.
