Who doesn't love perfectly sculpted cheekbones? Seriously, between contouring and highlighting the makeup world is going CRAZY over this trend. Want to know how to do it? Here is how I get the sharpest cheekbones...
1 First, bronze the outer perimeter of your face to give your skin a fresh tan. When applying bronzer, make a '3' shape-- around the forehead, down the cheekbone, and around the jaw line (don't forget to go down the neck, too!). I always go in with a light hand and then build it up-- it's always better to slowly darken your bronzer, because you'll have more control.
2 Next, apply blush to the apples of your cheeks. I like to do this part before steps three and four so that my highlighter and contour are more prominent. Dont forget, after you finish you can always go back in and blend everything with your blush brush to make your cheeks rosier. This will also make your cheeks look more seamless.
3 Now for the fun part! I LIVE for contouring.... Seriously, I can't leave the house without it, haha. You have to be careful with contouring because you don't want it to look like a stripe down your face... Unless you're into that kinda thing, in that case-- you do you, ha. If you go in with too heavy of a hand or use the wrong color it can look muddy, and no one likes that! Feel for your cheekbone and then use a true brown color to apply the product right underneath.
4 LET'S ADD THAT FREAKING GLOW! I love, love, LOVE, highlighter. It transforms any look. This part is simple-- apply it to the tops of the cheekbones using a fan brush or a beauty blender. Highlighter is personal, you can build it up so it's so bright that you'll blind someone, or you can leave it as a natural lit-from-within glow.
