  1. oh em geee I’ve been looking for something like this for the longest time, I just got into makeup and this is excellent, you can’t find a great tutorial for different face types on youtube

  2. This is great!! I have a heart-shape face. I’m curious, what product do we use on the hollows of our cheeks? And do I use a bronzer on my hairline and under my chin? Thank you for your helpful tips!
