If you’ve ever wished for killer cheekbones that could cut glass, you’ve probably wondered if there are any easy ways to get them. You might not have been born with the cheekbones of a model, but that doesn’t mean that you’re completely out of options. You can still get your cheeks to look amazing, whether you do it with makeup or you want to try something that will last a bit longer. Emphasizing your cheekbones can give you the sharp look that you want so that you’re ready to take on any catwalk – or just your next night out.
Contouring allows you to use makeup to shape your face, shading in the lines and shadows that you want. It’s a great way to get the cheekbones you’re looking for by highlighting them and adding shape to them. To make sure you contour your cheeks in the right place, suck your cheeks in so you know where the hollows of your cheeks are and to emphasize your cheekbones. Ideally, your contouring should end below your eyebrows. Use a contour powder or bronzer a couple of shades darker than your skin and a blush to create the contouring look you want.
Highlighting or strobing can be viewed as the opposite of contouring, but they can also complement each other. If you don’t want to use bronzer, it’s a good way to shape your cheekbones. The idea is to create the appearance of good lighting, not just for your cheekbones but other areas of your features too. Try a cream-based highlighter and apply it just above your cheekbones. A shimmer blush can also be a good alternative if you don’t have a highlighter, or you could use a powder highlighter, especially if you don’t have very prominent cheekbones.
As you get older, your skin produces less collagen, and this means that it starts to sag. Your face and your cheeks in particular can start to show signs of aging, and you might want to try and retain that youthful look. Some people choose to go to an aesthetic medical clinic for dermal fillers, which offer one option for plumping up your cheeks. Others even consider cheek implants to get the cheeks they want. You might also simply consider using anti-aging creams and other products that are designed to help you stay young.
Facial exercises are often recommended for anti-aging and to work the muscles in your face. Not everyone is particularly convinced that facial exercises can help you to get the looks that you want, but many people say that they do work for getting killer cheekbones and for a variety of other things too. You can try out some facial exercises to see if they might work for you. If nothing else, remember that smiling is sure to make your cheekbones look great.
To get the cheekbones that you want, you can try a few different methods. Find the one that works for you.
When we wear foundation, most of us do so to give our skin that flawless finish. And, when we’re young, near enough any product seems to do that job. As soon as we start to age, though, we find that we’re dealing with the worst foundation flaw of all – exaggerated creases.
The sad fact is that, as we get older, our makeup has a harder job to appear flawless. This is especially the case when it comes to fundamental pieces like foundation. At the development of even fine lines, you may begin to find that your foundation doesn’t stay in place. Instead, it hugs every line and creases in the worst areas. By the end of the day, you can’t help but feel that you would look younger without any foundation at all.
That doesn’t mean you need to go cold-turkey on the products you love most. But, it does mean you might want to consider the following ways to clear creases in your foundation from now on.
Find ways to lessen the appearance of wrinkles
Seeing as fine lines and wrinkles are the main reason these creases keep happening, you may want to address the issue at its source. It figures that lessening these issues can help to address foundation creasing. In minor cases, you may find that moisturizer can hydrate your skin so much that fine lines near enough disappear. If the situation is a little more extreme, you could even book yourself for some wrinkle relaxing treatments which can also see lines lessen across your face. This way, there are fewer areas for your foundation to crease in the first place and thus less chance of it happening.
If your foundation is clinging in the wrong places, it’s possible that you need to remember how much less can be more. When we’re young, we can all cake foundation on like there’s no tomorrow. As we age, though, doing the same is sure to lead to trouble. While your impulse will be to wear more, you’ll be far better off reducing how much foundation you use. Ensure you still get the same results by adjusting your color or opting for full-coverage options. Then, dab on small amounts at a time, and stop as soon as you think you’ve covered everything.
Become familiar with base layers
Base layers are also your friend if creases are getting you down. These do what they say on the tin, and can provide a smooth layer on which to apply your foundation. Pick the right base layer, and you should find that creasing near enough comes to an end. You may want to opt for a primer, many of which focus on reducing pores and wrinkles for this exact reason. Or, you may prefer a BB cream which can provide even more coverage. Either way, using these as a base layer is sure to see your skin looking as smooth as it did when you were young.
When you go for a night out with your girls, the chances are that you want to look a little special. You’ve had a long week of wearing the same makeup and making do with work-appropriate outfits. Now, you want to make a bang by going all out. The trouble is that you don’t have the first clue how to go about it. Every time you try something new, you end up reverting to the everyday makeup which you know serves you. Before you know it, all your girls get the attention, while you blend into the background as always. It’s enough to ruin your night out and your self-confidence in one blow. And, there’s no reason you need to let it happen to you. In reality, getting your makeup special for a night out isn’t the puzzle you’re making it out to be. All you need are a few go-to secrets which ensure all eyes fall on you the moment your group enters the club. Lucky for you, we’re going to look at a few foolproof night-out options which could serve you every time. Ladies night; here we come. The smokey eye Smokey eyes are a night out classic. There’s something about these which never fails to bring a whole new level of sexy to your going out look. Even better, these are probably so different to the neutral eye shadow colors you use all the time that they’re sure to cause a stir. And, this is a more effortless look to achieve than you would ever expect. All you need to do is get on top with your color choices and smudging techniques. A bit of definition and highlighter never hurts to provide a bit of lift, either. If in doubt; remember that there are plenty of tutorials to help you with this. Each one of them could see you as the center of attention all night.
Long lashes Whether you’re going for a smokey eye or not, you can bet that long lashes are a good idea, too. By stocking up on options like these cruelty-free eyelashes and practicing how to apply them, you can guarantee you look good. Anyone you speak to on the night is sure to get lost in your eyes this way. Again, this option is so far from your regular makeup routine that it’s sure to provide the WOW factor without fail every single time.
Bright lips If you want to keep things simple, a bright lip is always an easy go-to. This doesn’t require any makeup magic or tutorials. You just need to apply before heading out and win the crowd over that way. Bear in mind that subtle lips may be best if you are going for smokey eyes. Otherwise, a deep rouge could leave you looking ravishing all night long. Even better, it’s pretty tricky to get this wrong. All you need to do is get a straw to make sure that lipstick doesn’t come off while you’re drinking!
The new foundation from Covergirl is really good! This is Matte Ambition in color FS400. The coverage is nice, I really love the way look came out. I use primarily all Covergirl products to achieve this look. I am in love with this blue based purplish pink lipstick called “Charms” by Covergirl.
I am loving my new eye shadow palette by Beauty Glazed! Love, LOVE, LOVE!! When I saw this palette on Amazon I knew that I had to take a chance on it. It was only $7.88, so I ordered. The colors were just perfect for me and I love the size of the palette. It fits perfect in my travel makeup case. As you see, this palette has 9 shades in both matte and shimmery finishes. It has nice beautiful warm tones. The pigmentation is BANANAS for such an affordable palette! It is super rich in color and the shadows blend easily! I highly recommend you try these palettes.
Be sure to check out Beauty Glazed Palettes!! I highly recommend them!
BLK Opal foundations are really nice. I use these alot because they are full coverage and affordable! I purchased these from Walmart for $9.97 each (worth every cent!).
I have them in the shades “Carob” “Champagne Beige”, and “Truly Topaz”.
There are 16 shades of the BLK Opal foundation sticks to choose from.
“Truly Topaz” is my true foundation shade, I use “Carob” as my contour shade and “Champagne Beige” has my highlight shade. I really love the look and the finish of this combination.
These sticks are so creamy and blendable. I use my Sigma Flat Top Kabuki brush to blend the foundations.
For the price, these sticks are amazing! These are great for both beginners and advanced makeup wearers.
This foundations are said to blur pore appearance, conceal imperfections and achieve natural looking skin with this creme stick foundation. Perfect for highlighting, contouring, touch-ups and seamless full coverage applications, this best- selling formula delivers moisturized, even-toned flawless complexion.
BLK Opal “Champagne Beige”
Though I will advise using a really great setting powder and setting spray to set the foundation.
I can successfully wear this foundation,with my super oily skin, for just about 12 hours before I can feel and visibly see my foundation begin to move and separate. I do have to tell you that no matter what I use to set my face with after having using my BLK Opal, I still have a shine.
Nonetheless, I have really been enjoying the coverage and the ease of application being that this foundation is in stick form.
I highly recommend that you try BLK Opal foundation sticks if you are in the market for a good foundation stick. And too, these are great MUA kit “Must Haves” because they are easy to travel with and easy to use.
Hey Loves! I have the Urban Decay Naked Cherry Collection. I am enjoying this collection thoroughly! This collection is definitly up my alley! I mean, I feel like it was curated just for me! The entire collection is perfectly cohessive, everything works well together. It really gives me all the feels!! Seriously.
Though the Naked Cherry palette and the Vice Lipstick in “Cherry” are my two favorite items from the collection. These would be the two items that I would recommend you buy if you decide against buying the entire collection.
This collection is currently in stores and available for ordering the Urban Decay Official website. Grab it before its gone, because Im not sure if this collection will be around long (not a permanent product line).
Recently Ive said that I would not buy another darn eyeshadow palette! I have so many palettes and I can admit that they all almost look the same! Yep, I said it! But when I saw the MakeupShayla and Colourpop collaboration, it was a no brainer! I knew it had to have it for a few reasons! 1, I wanted to see Shayla win and 2, the palette had all of my favorite colors in one palette!! It’s perfection!
I honestly didnt expect these shadows to be soooo smooth and soft! They feel and perform like luxury shadows, such a pleasant surprise! Especially for the price point. This palette is only $23!
There are three lipsticks in the collaboration collection, I only purchased one. I purchased “C’mon Sis”, this lipstick was the right choice for me, as I love pinky nudes.
This is the look I created today using the palette and the lipstick! Nice wearable everyday look. Save $5 on your Order from Colourpop! https://www.talkable.com/x/JNCXWZ
Its totally made of silicon for easy use and easy clean up! Using the tool is very easy, all you do is coat the tool with a full coverage concealer, position it on your eyelid, then press it firmly to your lid to ensure that the concealer transfers to your lid. I used LA Girl Pro Conceal concealer as my cutcrease base.
Once the concealer is on the lid, gently blend the edges… then apply lid color of your choice. Here is the result of my first time using this stamper.
Great for beginners who are not yet comfortable at creating a cutcrease using only brushes. Also good for client use as well, makes for a speedy application process and it still looks very skilled and neat!
Very easy to clean, just wipe it off with a makeup remover wipe or a form of wet wipe!
