VIDEO TUTORIAL: Cheekbone Contouring

It has been absolute ages and ages since our last video, so we thought it was about time to make a new one!

One of the questions I get asked the most is how to create amazing cheekbones, so I thought it would be fun to do a step-by-step on what I do every day to achieve the look of great cheekbones, while still looking nice and natural.
You can go all out and do some serious definition for a night out or an editorial photoshoot. But on a day-to-day basis, we all need something that looks like it could easily be a god-given feature. Nobody needs to know that we use our makeup tricks to look this way!

As you can see from the before and after, the effect is a subtle one, but these techniques do a great job at defining your bone structure, while brightening up the rest of the face. These images are not edited at all, so they give the true result.

I hope you like the video. I would love to hear your thoughts!

Let me know if you have any other videos you would like to see. I find the makeup ones a lot of fun because I used to be a makeup artist and it allows me to bring it back into my life. But any ideas that you have, I would love to hear them!

Below are the brushes I used for this tutorial. MAC is an awesome place to get any makeup brush you could possibly ever need. I've accumulated quite a few over the years, but these are my go-tos for contouring. Most of the aren't used for their intended purpose, but I've found this is what works best for me. Let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks so much for visiting!
