The obsession with cheekbones. The standards of beauty are constantly evolving, what was attractive ten years ago might not be considered “the in” in modern times. Since what we find attractive is subjective, there is hardly anything that the public collectively agrees on or has stood through the variations of time as a beauty ideal.
However, one particular feature remained the trend for years despite the continuous evolution of beauty standards; defined cheekbones. Defined cheekbones are features that the human race collectively finds appealing and science agrees.
Here Are 5 Tips To Help You Achieve Diamond-Cutting Cheekbones
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are the most secure and realistic approach to achieving to-die-for cheekbones. HA fillers constitute hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar that retains water and provides volume. Initially used as an anti-ageing treatment, dermal fillers soon expanded their applications to substitute various cosmetic surgeries.
Systematically injected into the jawline and cheekbones, dermal fillers can accurately add volume to the treated areas giving the illusion of a defined facial structure. Dermal fillers are not permanent and dissolve within a year. The temporary effect of fillers is a perk to the treatment as it allows for coordinating the fillers to adapt annual facial changes throughout the year, instead of maintaining a surgical change that may or may not adapt to the changes a face often undergoes through the years.
If applied correctly, makeup can immensely alter facial features. To use make up for our purpose you will need your makeup brush, a bronzer that is three shades darker than your skin tone, and a highlighter lighter than your skin tone.
To start, stand in front of a mirror and suck in your cheekbones to make them hollow. What you need to do next is to apply the bronzer in the sucked-in area just below the cheekbones and blend in. Once the bronzer is mixed in and set, you’re ready for the second step: highlighting.
Choose a highlighter that is one shade lighter than your skin tone. If you are of dark skin choose a highlighter with a gold undertone. If you are of fair skin pick a highlighter with a pearly undertone. What you need to do next is to apply this highlighter on your cheekbones using a brush. Then gently blend it in along your cheekbones.
What this does is play around with the reflection of light on your face giving the illusion of defined cheekbones.
