One Minute Makeover: Instant Cheekbones


Noone would want to come between a girl and her makeup! but if you’re skipping your cheeks you’re missing a major beauty opportunity. Even if you weren’t blessed with impossibly high cheekbones, creating them is easier and faster than you might think. Got an extra minute after that lipstick application? Then you’ve got time for instant cheekbones!

20 seconds: Using a matte bronzer that’s slightly darker than your skin, start in the hollows of your cheeks and sweep the color up towards your temples. Try Yves Saint Laurent Terre Saharienne Powder. The goal is to create a shadow, not a line! so make sure to work your brush until the bronzer is completely blended.

20 seconds: Dust a rosy-hued blush across the apples of the cheeks like Lancôme Blush Subtil in Pink Lamour.

20 seconds: And these last 20 seconds are when it’s all going to come together. Make your best “fish face” and highlighting right at the top of your cheekbones with an illuminizer like L’Oréal Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer. To find that spot do the fish face and apply on top of the hollow sections. And of course, don’t forget to blend!

Total Time: 1 minute. Stay gorgeous!
