• Clean your face and apply moisturizer

• Start with a coat of foundation on your face. Take a stippling brush or a sponge and start applying the foundation in a circular and dabbing motion. Start from the center and blend it outwards to even out the skin tone.
• See whether you are getting the desired coverage. If not, then use a concealer to achieve perfection.

Makeup For Cheeks

Light Makeup For Cheeks

The most prominent facial feature is your cheeks. Set on cheekbones, they give your face a definite dimension. You need to work on the apple of your cheeks to improve their look.

How To:

• Pamper the apple of your cheeks with a quality blush. Use a fluffy blush brush and pat the blush on the apples. To blend the blush on the cheekbones, gently move the brush in the upward direction near the temples.
• Apply a coat of color and layer it only to increase its intensity. If you want a sun-kissed look, you should use a bronzer instead.
• Use a cream/powder base highlighter to make your cheeks glow and choose a silver or gold color highlighter.
• Apply the highlighter above the cheekbones, on the bridge of the nose, and on the center of the forehead.

Note: You can use your finger to apply the highlighter if you don’t have a brush. But a brush would be more convenient to highlight the upper planes of your face.

You can see that the focus on the makeup of cheeks remains on the higher planes that include cheekbones, nose, and forehead. It is light makeup at home but it can glow your cheeks.

Second Step: Choose a color in a neutral shade for light makeup. Apply the color with the help of a fluffy or flat brush. Pat the brush on the eyelid and move it in a circular motion towards the crease. Blend it well to maintain the natural look.

Third Step: It’s time to use eyeliner and the good thing is that you are free to choose a pencil, gel, or liquid eyeliner according to your choice and convenience. Start from the outer corner of your eye to the inner corner. Use a pointed or angular brush and apply the eyeliner stroke-by-stroke.

Note: Keep your eyeliner as close to your lash line as possible.

Fourth Step: Groom your eyebrows using an eyebrow pencil or an eyeshadow matching with the color of your brows. Also, check whether the eyebrows require trimming.

Fifth Step: Finally, curl your lashes and apply a coat of mascara starting from the roots to tips.
