Our Duo Brush Face was specifically designed to play perfectly with all of these formulas. If you prefer to use your fingers or a beauty sponge for application, those would work well, too!

GlowTour Duo:

Think of contouring as a way to add shadows to your face to create an illusion of a more sculpted and defined facial structure. Everyone’s face shape is different, so you’ll want to play with what areas you’d like to enhance or where your natural shadows lie. The following steps are just a general baseline but continue to explore what feels best for you!

Forehead: Contouring your forehead is purely personal preference. When contouring the forehead, apply at the highpoints of your hairline and blend, creating the illusion of a shorter forehead.

Cheeks: Use your finger to find your cheekbone and swipe the product under it from the top of your ear to the center of the cheek.

Nose: Apply the product on the outsides of your nose connecting into the brow bone.

Jawline: Apply the contour underneath your jaw to add dimension.

Pro Tip: When blending your nose contour, avoid pulling the product away from the nose to maintain a chiseled, slimming effect.

Desert Island Duo Bronzer:

Think of bronzing as a makeup technique used to bring a blended, sun-kissed tan to your face. The placement of bronzer is less technical than contour, as you’re using this product to add warmth to your face vs. sculpting and defining.

Forehead: Swipe the product along the top of the hairline.

Cheeks: Apply the bronzer on top of your cheekbones.

Nose: Apply a little amount on the bridge of your nose for a slight sun-tanned appearance or bronze the sides as well!

Chin: Place some product on the center of your chin to continue the glow.

Pro Tip: Our bronzers and contours are designed to complement each other, whether used simultaneously or separately. It's all about finding your style and achieving the look you desire!



After contouring and bronzing, adding blush to your cheeks will bring a natural, healthy pop of color to your skin.

Cheeks: Apply to the highpoints of the cheekbones for a lifted effect, as well as on the apples of your cheeks for a natural flush! Our Desert Island Duos and GlowTour Duos are made to be mixed and matched so feel free to Double Dib and make your own unique color combinations!

Pro Tip: For a flawless and lifted finish, remember to always blend upwards. For a more sculpted appearance, take it a step further by applying the blush slightly below your temples. This technique helps lift the face and enhances the overall contoured effect, giving you a beautiful, effortlessly sculpted finish.
