Makeover Tips for Cheeks
How to get Glowing Contoured Cheeks for Day
Bronzing does not equate to contouring. When you bronze yourself, you give yourself something of a fake tan and a sunkissed glow. It subtly changes your skin color but does not make your face skinnier or your bones more pronounced.Highlighting and contouring subtly alters your facial structure but does not alter your overall skin tone.Start with foundation or whatever base you use. Conceal any discolorations if you need but know that you might need to touch up afterwards as your contouring and highlighting may remove some product.
Apply your highlighter thickly along the brow bone, and then along the cheekbones. Be generous with your highlighter. This is going to get faded out and blended when you apply all your other products later. Also, start the highlight much higher up on the cheekbones, almost right under the eyes. See below image for the whole area where you should pack on highlighter. This lifts your cheek bones and allows the sheen to catch the light better, so you get that polished perfectskin glow.
Use a small face powder brush for more control and color intensity. The darker matte powder should cup the highlighter earlier and curve in at the outer corners of your temples in a rough C. If you want to sculpt and lift your cheekbones, you should always run your contour just slightly higher than the actual hollow points of your cheeks.
Optional as well! Touch up any concealer lightly where needed, but do not go overboard unless you want a matte beige spot on a dewy pink cheek.
