5 Non-Surgical Approaches to Achieving Cheekbones

The standards of beauty are constantly changes. Certain features and body types can be the in now. But in decades fade out as other beauty standards come through. Recently, cheekbones have become the hot topic.
Defined cheekbones are all the rage due to how they affects appearance. They give a sharper edgier look that signifies maturity.

Here Are 5 Tips To Help You Achieve Diamond-Cutting Cheekbones

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

The hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are the most secure and efficient solutions to get your to-die-for cheekbones. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar that retains water and provides volume.

HA was most commonly an ant-aging treatment. But dermal fillers soon expanded their applications to substitute various cosmetic surgeries. HA fillers also contain other components for skin hydrating.

You can achieve sharp cheekbones by systematically injecting HA into the cheek area. HA molecules will hold on to water increasing the volume of your cheeks. And this will give your cheeks a protruding look.

While the results are very successful, they are not permanent. Because HA is a naturally occurring substance, the body will break it down. So expect results to wear down after a year or so.

It is also a perk that the treatment breaks down. This is because your face is constantly changing. And getting a permanent change on your features will backfire as you age. It will mean that your face will continue to evolve but the permanent procedure you had will remain the same.

As a result, the treatment will look less and less natural with time. But with HA fillers you can rest assure you will always have the chance to repeat the treatment after a while. Making sure it always blends with your face.


If applied correctly, makeup can immensely alter facial features. To use make up for our purpose you will need a few items. So get 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.
