Then with beauty blender blend everything nicely. To chisel your cheekbones more put highlighter underneath of the dark shade and blend out.

As another brightener and also setting powder use translucent powder and apply it on all over the face. Make sure that nothing is shiny or glossy looking because you need full matte look for this makeup.
