And it’s a lot easier than you think! Check out these tips and tricks below to fake your way to gorgeous high cheekbones!

Just one brush stroke on each cheek and you’ve highlighted and contoured all at once.
Our other favorite is 10 Palette from Benefit. It’s an amazing powder duo that bronzes and highlights in one sexy sweep to give you sleek, sculpted cheekbones. In this palette they included two seductive shades for lips and complimentary shades for your eyes. This is a limited edition palette that is perfect for makeup amateurs who want something quick and easy to give them the look they desire. Perfect for moms who only have 4 1/2 minutes to throw on some makeup.

To create the illusion of prominent cheekbones (which sculpts your face and creates a slimming effect), swirl mauve blush, powder or bronzer onto the apples of cheeks, then pat a light pink lip balm high up on the cheekbones to catch light. You can also use
One trick that is handy is to use a slightly darker foundation under the cheek bones. Make sure to blend well! If done properly, it looks more natural than a bronzer or powder blush. Next put a dab of highlighter like Benefit High Beam or Benefit Moon Beam, along the top of the cheekbone, again blend well, and finally to soften the look, a little bit of blusher, (pink or peach depending on your skin color) on the “apple ” of your cheeks. Cream or mousse is best as this will blend better with the other 2 products.
