Celebrities have been flaunting a makeup technique that gives their faces a lifted, youthful appearance. If you’ve been wondering how to snatch your face, here’s the steps to mimic the desired look.

Prepping the Skin

The first step to snatching your face is properly prepping the skin. Start by thoroughly cleansing your face to remove any dirt or impurities. Follow up with a moisturizer that suits your skin type to ensure your skin is hydrated. Hydrated skin not only looks healthier, but also helps makeup to glide on more smoothly.

Once moisturized, apply a primer. Primers are essential as they create a smooth base for your foundation and help your makeup last longer. Focus on areas where your makeup tends to wear off the most, such as the T-zone.


Selecting the right foundation shade is crucial for a natural look. Choose a foundation that matches your skin tone and apply it evenly across your face. Using a damp beauty sponge can help blend the foundation seamlessly into your skin, giving you a more natural finish. Alternatively, a foundation brush can be used for a more polished look. Start from the center of your face and blend outwards to avoid any harsh lines at the edges of your face. Make sure to cover your neck to ensure a uniform color.

Concealing and Highlighting

To brighten up your face and enhance the lifted look, use a concealer that is one to two shades lighter than your skin tone. Apply the concealer under your eyes in an inverted triangle shape, which will help to brighten this area and reduce the appearance of any dark circles. Apply the concealer to the center of your forehead, down the bridge of your nose, your cupid’s bow and the center of your chin. These areas catch light naturally and highlighting them will enhance your features. Blend the concealer using a beauty sponge to ensure there are no harsh lines.


Contouring adds dimension to your face and accentuates your natural bone structure. Use a contour stick or a darker shade of foundation to contour the hollows of your cheeks, your jawline, the sides of your nose and the perimeter of your forehead. To create the lifted effect, blend the contour upwards towards your temples. Blending is key to achieving a natural look, so take your time to ensure there are no harsh lines. Use an angled brush or a beauty sponge to blend the contour seamlessly into your foundation.

Blush and Highlighter

Blush adds a healthy flush to your cheeks, while highlighter brings a glow to the high points of your face. Apply blush slightly higher on your cheeks, towards your temples, to enhance the lifted look. Choose a shade that complements your skin tone. Next, apply highlighter to the tops of your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose, your brow bone and the inner corners of your eyes. The highlighter will catch the light and give your face a radiant glow.


For the eyes, use neutral shades to keep the look sophisticated and elegant. Apply a light shade across your lids as a base. Then, take a slightly darker shade and blend it into your crease to add depth. For an added lift, extend the eyeshadow slightly upwards and outwards towards the ends of your brows. This technique helps to create an elongated and lifted appearance. Finish with a winged eyeliner. Start thin at the inner corners of your eyes and gradually thicken the line towards the outer corners. The winged effect also helps to lift your eyes.


Well-groomed brows frame your face and enhance your overall look. Fill in your brows with a brow pencil or powder, following the natural shape of your brows. Focus on creating a fuller, yet natural look. Brush your brows upwards using a spoolie to blend the product and create a lifted appearance. You can also set your brows with a clear or tinted brow gel to keep them in place all day.


Choose a lip color that enhances your natural lip shade. Nude or soft pinks work well for this look, providing a subtle yet polished finish. Start by lining your lips with a lip liner that matches your chosen lipstick. This will help define your lips and prevent the lipstick from bleeding. Fill in your lips with the matching lipstick or gloss, ensuring an even application.

Final Touches

To ensure your makeup stays in place all day, set it with a setting spray. Hold the spray at arm’s length and mist it over your face. This final step helps to lock in your makeup, giving you a long-lasting, flawless, snatched face look.
