Directions from packaging:

Use your fingertips or a blending sponge to spotlight the high points of the face like the cheek brow bones. Use a small amount to highlight the inner corner cupid's bow - a little goes a long way!

For the most intense strobing effect, layer each shade underneath its coordinating Amazonian clay 12-hour powder highlighter.
