Try a Trend...Razor Cheeks
If you're not blessed with the razor-sharp cheekbones of Kate Moss, do not fear. A couple of clever tricks can work wonders for the bone-structurally-challenged.
Step 1. I used my favourite bronzer, Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Soft Duo Bronzer, £25.50 (Boots). It's got a matte finish and the two-tone powder is perfect for contouring the cheek. First, I swirled a large powder brush over the whole compact and swept upwards across the cheek, towards the hair line.
Step 2. Using the darker half, begin to shade underneath the cheekbone to create a shadowing effect.
Step 3. To finish the look I applied Benefit High Beam, £17.50 (Boots), to the top of the cheekbones. The pearlescent finish catches the light to give the illusion of more prominent cheeks. Sx
