How to Highlight your cheeks
I love to highlight my cheeks. Basically you highlight the areas of your face that you want to enhance and “highlight” So if you have very chubby cheeks you would probably want to contour them (than highlight) so that your overall face looks slimmer. I really don’t follow too many makeup rules so I like to highlight my “winter chubby” cheeks as well.
Apply the blush on your cheekbone ,going upwards towards the temple.
Then take a fluffy brush such as this. This is Sigma E 40. Similar brushes to this one are MAC 224 or Inglot 4SS. I have tried highlighting with tons of different brushes but i have failed miserably. For me this brush works perfectly. I can control the amount of product I want to use with this brush and do a precise highlighting with this. You can try highlighting with other brushes as well but for me , this works beautifully.
You have to make an “inverted C” starting from just on top of your blush going inward to your brow arch. (check photos below)
Now blend your highlight into the blush by doing downward strokes with the brush . This is just to avoid any harsh lines.
You can also highlight your nose. this will make your nose look taller. I mostly avoid this step.
Highlight the center of your forehead.
Also your chin.
Hope it helps!
Tip : Use powder highlighter with a powder blush and cream highlighter with cream blush.
