A chiseled cheek —along with pouty lips, mile-long legs, and lush lashes — is the genetic jackpot, when it comes to beauty. But even if Mom and Dad didn’t bless you with cheekbones that could cut glass, you can fake that sculpted visage thanks to the magic of makeup.
With just some blush, bronzer, and the right know-how — courtesy of our makeup maven Taylor — you can instantly create the bone structure you’ve always dreamed of. In this video tutorial, we’ll teach you how to apply your bronzer for a more glowy complexion, and walk you through the tricks you need to know to get a naturally contoured cheek without looking like an extra in a Duran Duran video. Kate Moss, eat your heart out.
