Choosing Browlift

The cheekbones are a beautiful part of a women’s face. It gives her face an elegant, youthful appearance. Unfortunately, some women’s cheekbones aren’t as visible as they would like.

This can either be due to the natural contour of the face or to having small cheekbones. Luckily, women with hard-to-see cheekbones can enhance their look with these simple strategies.

Blush is an excellent way to highlight cheekbones. Choose a color that is slightly pinker than the undertone of your natural skin color, and apply to the apples of your cheeks. Don’t go overboard with the color. Just a subtle difference is enough to highlight your cheekbones.

Bronzer is another great way to boost the appearance of cheekbones. Apply a matte bronzer under your cheekbones. This creates a shadow that will bring out your cheekbones.

A tip most makeup artists know is to use darker foundation under the cheekbones. You don’t want to go too dark, but a couple of shades darker should be perfect. For best results, use a small brush to apply it and ensure you blend it in to the rest of your face. Finish with a highlighting powder dusted onto the upper cheekbones to help them appear more prominent.

Facial Exercises

You can quickly boost your cheekbones each day with a cheek exercise. All you have to do is suck in your cheeks towards your teeth. This creates the fish face. Keep your fish face going for at least 10 seconds and then let go. Do this 10 times each day.

If you have trouble holding the fish face for 10 seconds, puckering your lips together as though you’re kissing someone will work just as well. Make a kiss face for 10 seconds; repeat 10 times a day.

Haircut and Style

The right haircut and style can boost the look of cheekbones. For many women, simply getting their haircut shorter and framed around their face is enough to bring out their cheekbones. Bangs that flow down to the cheekbones and curve inward can boost the appearance of cheekbones, as well.

Facial Fat Transfer or Fillers in Long Island or New York City

Some women won’t see results using makeup, exercises, and changing their haircut and style. If this sounds like you, fat transfer to the face may be an excellent option. This procedure takes fat from another part of your body and places it in your cheeks to increase their volume. The procedure is permanent.

For a temporary enhancement (up to two years), fillers are available that are specifically formulated to plump up the cheeks, restoring volume that may have been lost due to aging, or which was never these to begin with. Cheek volume fillers are becoming more popular by the day.
