Cheat your way to a quick supermodel bone structure with Studio 10’s best-selling all-in-one contour kit: Visible Lift Face Definer. Having a palette that has everything you need is sure to save you some time to avoid digging in your makeup bag in search for your fave blush, highlight and bronzer. Every second counts when you could still be in bed, right? For a super simple and ultra quick look, opt for using the highlighter on it’s own. By applying the product where your face would naturally catch the light (cheekbones, bridge of nose, chin and upper lip) you can add a fresh glow in no time!
