Contouring Your Cheekbones
The following is a quick tip on how to contour your cheekbones and sculpt your face. This trick I learned some years ago from an incredible makeup artist in the industry and it is very simple to do. If you’ve visited other makeup tutorials, they can be a bit intimidating and complicated to achieve. With this trick it can be as simple as using one product and suddenly you have cheekbones.
Step One: Applying light powder
Use a sponge wedge and apply a light matte powder to just under the cheekbones and your blush. I’d recommend using Rouge Bunny Rouge Imperceptible Powder in “Aura”. You can also use any light face powder but it needs to have a fair amount of pigment so it will show up.
Step Two: Blend out
Brush away and blend out excess powder with a powder brush, my personal favorite being the Cozzette S120. You should not see a white streak after blending color out and if so, you have used too light of a shade. Flesh toned colors are better than white. The end result should just be that your cheekbones look more sculpted.
Step Three (optional): Bronzer
For added depth, you can apply a bronzer to just under your cheekbones. The placement of the bronzer should be right under your blush. Our customer favorite is the Girlactik Matte Bronzer in “Cabo”. Make sure your bronzer is matte and not too dark or it will appear like something out of the eighties!
If done correctly this quick step can create the illusion of having great cheekbones! For more in-depth tips on how to apply makeup from Julie Farley, come on in to The Make-up Studio for a Signature Lesson or a Mini Express Lesson.
