Be A Sculpted Beauty With This Contoured Cheek


The Tip: A sculpted cheek takes center-stage in this '80s flashback look (trust us, it's pretty!). Apply cream blush to the hollow of your cheek and blend it up and out toward your temples. Use a highlighter on the tops of your cheekbones and blend out. Using a blush brush, apply a powder blush in between the contour and illuminator, then blend well to achieve a diffused effect. Apply a gold cream eyeshadow to your lid, followed by brown in your crease and blue along your lash line, lining the inner rims with it as well. Finish with a pink lipstick.

The Tools: Pink powder blush, Shiseido Accentuating Color Stick in S3, bronze cream blush, gold cream eyeshadow, brown cream eyeshadow, blue cream eyeshadow, pink lipstick.

The Trick: If you think you've applied too much color, apply a dab of foundation to a makeup sponge and blend it into your cheek color to erase the excess.
Shiseido Sponsored Tip: When the focus of your makeup look is your skin, a smooth texture is a necessity. Shiseido Bio-Performance Advanced Super Revitalizing Cream features a patent-pending complex that reinforces skin’s elastin fibers, promoting firm, flawless skin that’s resistant to fine lines and wrinkles.
