This tutorial was created especially for those whose cheekbones haven’t come in yet! I grew up on the extreme end of chubby cheeks… borderline chipmunk cheeks that people loved to pinch (which made me cringe!). My mom always said “don’t worry honey, your cheekbones will come in when you’re 25” and low and behold they did! But what do you do until then (besides embracing them)? The High Flush of course! This makes your cheeks appear higher and smaller than they actually are. Here’s how:
- Your Favorite Blush — We love Sonia Kashuk Beautifying Blush in Sunset and Flamingo or Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Swish & Pop Blusher in Love is the Drug.
- Your Favorite Blush Brush — We love MAKE UP FOR EVER Artisan Large Flat Blush Brush because it’s the perfect brush for powder blush. We also love the Cozzette S Series Vegan Brushes if you’re looking for a new set!
- Swirl the brush across the powder and give it a tap against your counter. Place it on the top outer corner of the apple as demonstrated above.
- Now sweep the brush towards your temple.
If you want to really slim and hollow out your cheeks, pair this with my Contouring 101 Tutorial.
