YSL Beauty has created what can only be described as the most genius guide to contouring, using Cara Delevingne’s face. Here is the complete guide with a few of BAZAAR’s favorite products added in…

Step 1: Perfect

Create an even base with your chosen foundation. For a flawless matte finish that lasts for 24 hours, look to YSL’s Fusion Foundation, $60, or YSL’s Touche Éclat Foundation, $57, for effortless radiance. If you prefer light coverage, try Giorgio Armani’s Maestro Fusion, $64.

Step 4: Sunkissed contour

Use a cream bronzer, such as YSL Les Saharienne, $55, along the top of your forehead, where the sun naturally hits it, and along the jawline to accentuate your bone structure.

To add definition, use the cream bronzer in the hollows of your cheekbones and either side of your nose.

Step 6: Blend

For a seamless finish, use a sponge or a good-quality brush to blend in circular movements.YSL’s Les Saharienne, $55, comes with a versatile sponge that is perfect for this. If you prefer a brush, look to the brand’s impressive selection.
