Get Arielle Reitsma’s Perfect Contour

We sat down with Contour Queen, Arielle Reitsma, for some tips and tricks to attaining the perfect cheekbone. Read our interview below:


WE LOVE YOUR BRONZE-BABE LOOK! You seem to have perfectly mastered the contoured cheek bone. Whats your application process?

Anyone that knows me knows I can’t live without my Beauty Blender. I use it for my foundation, contouring, and concealer. Then I buff it out with bronzer using a MAC brush!

Whats your most trusted brand of bronzer?

I swear by MAC Give Me The Sun. I’ve tried so many bronzers and it’s still my favorite. It gives you an all over sun-kissed look. For nighttime, I mix that with Lorac Tantilizer.

Whats the key secret to your cheekbone makeup always looking perfectly blended?

I put the bronzer below my cheekbone, then use a soft, inexpensive brush to buff my cheeks out. It gives me that J-Lo sun kissed look!

What highlighter do you use above your cheekbone?

Sun Beam by Benefit. It’s a liquid highlighter, so I take my Beauty Blender and dab it lightly on my cheekbone and around my face. I also love MAC Mineralized Lightscapade.

Biggest bronzing mistake?  

Caking it on! I love being tan, but packing it on can make you look dirty and caky.

What are 3 other beauty products you would die without?

My lip liner, NARS Sheer Glow foundation, and mascara.

Whered you learn how to apply your makeup? Where can a girl who is makeup handicapped perfect the art like you did?

I’ve always been a makeup girl since I was a kid. I’d watch YouTube tutorials and practice for hours copying looks. I’ve definitely had some crazy makeup moments (especially with winged eyeliner), but if you keep practicing and learning tricks you will get better and better.

When the day is over and youre cozy at home, what is your #1 trusty face wash that removes even the toughest of foundations/bronzers?  

I love Skin Ceauticals. I put the face-wash on my Clarisonic brush so that it gets everything off and makes my face smooth!
