ICYMI — Anastasia Beverly Hills came out with new Foundation Sticks, and they are all the rage right now. Available in 30 different shades broken down by complexion including fair, light, medium, deep, and dark, the new line of foundations is super extensive, aiming to provide a meticulously close match in shade to women of manny different skin tones.
We already know lots about these new sticks: they works best for oily to combination skin, are pretty affordable at just $25, and that all but four shades are available to shop right now at anastasiabeverlyhills.com. If you're still wondering how to use ABH's new Foundation Sticks, though, I've got you covered.
After months of social media teasers, the highly-coveted foundation sticks have finally dropped, and they are definitely living up to the hype. The highly-pigmented formula is super creamy but without the unwarranted shine, instead leaving a naturally matte-like finish. The great thing is, these products are multi-functional, so they can be used as an all-over foundation, thinned out as a tinted moisturizer, or for highlighting and contouring purposes, according to the brand's site.
ABH has launched a series of "How To" videos utilizing some of the shades to specifically show fans how to best use their new foundation sticks. Check out the step-by-step tutorial.
1. Apply Foundation All Over The Face
2. Apply Highlight To High Points Of The Face
Using a makeup sponge or brush, apply one of the highlight shades under the eyes, down the bridge of the nose, on the center of the chin, and on the T-zone of the forehead.
3. Apply Contour To Hollows Of The Face
Apply one of the contour shades to the natural hollows of your face, including right underneath the cheekbones, along the jawline, hairline, and sides of the nose, as well as the inner corners under the brows.
4. Blend It All Together
Use a beauty blender to blend all the products together, and — voilà! The finished look is so gorgeous.
