When it comes to makeup, products like highlighters and bronzers are a must for every woman. If you have never highlighted your cheekbones before, no matter how much make up you use, you will not be able to get that ‘to-die-for Hollywood look’. No doubt, chiseled cheekbones and deep cuts under them are a defining feature that is crucial for every makeup routine.
The extent to which you highlight the cheekbones is, of course, left to your judgement and the occasion you are getting ready for; however, it is safe to say that highlighting has become a regular part of a beautician’s work. If you are one of those individuals who have a chubby face that hides your cheekbones, highlighting can become your secret weapon.
How often have you looked at a celebrity and drooled over the dewy cheekbones that give a beautiful oval shape to the face? If you need a second to count the number of times, it is about time that you buy a highlighter kit for a DIY highlighting session.
Before you start, the most important thing to remember is that highlighting cheekbones is not as easy as applying blush to your cheeks. This step can go terribly wrong as well because if you apply too much of the product your facial features can look out of proportion. Follow these steps to make sure that you highlight your cheekbones just enough to make them stand out.
Purchase the Essential Products
A highlighting kit comes with a highlighter, deep colored bronzer and an angled brush.
Identify the Facial Areas
There are two spots you need to identify; one, those that are shadowy parts, and two, those that are on top of the shadows. For instance, the cleft under the cheekbone is the shadow and the bone itself is the top of the shadow.
Using the angled brush, put small amounts of bronzer on both the clefts of the cheek. This slanted part stretches from the top of your side burns till the center of the eye. Now apply highlighter on the cheekbones.
Blend to Finish
Blending is very important so that there are no solid lines around the face. With no hard lines, your cheekbones will seem to stand right out- as defined as they could be!
