Pop Down Your Cheeks

While everyone might love cuddling your cheeks, you hate them and would love to conceal them. Right? Here are the methods to pop down your cheeks using only makeup to make your face look thinner.

Use a powder, one shade darker than your normal skin tone, to draw a line along your cheek bone. Blend it from the ears to the mouth. After blending it in, add a thin coat of a highlighter to redefine your cheeks.

On a line above the dark powder, apply your favourite coloured blush and blend it from your ears to your mouth.

The highlighter adds a pop effect, while the dark powder gives it a shadow that would help make your face appear thinner.

To Have A Pointed Nose

To have a pointed nose, the list of the required makeup products is not long - powder, one shade darker than your normal skin tone, and a highlighter lighter than your natural skin tone would be needed. You will also need two smaller brushes for blending it all in.

First, apply the dark powder (only a line) on the sides of the nose and blend it towards the bridge using one of the brushes.
Apply the highlighter starting from between your eyebrows till the tip of your nose. Use the other brush to mix the highlighter into the powder you applied along the sides.

The highlighter exposes the brighter portion of the your nose, while the dark powder shrinks in the sides to make the nose appear slimmer and pointed.

Contour To The Rescue!

Contouring helps a lot in changing the shape of one's face.
You have to apply the contour in a diagonal shape from the centre of your cheeks towards the ears. Blend this nicely.
Please note, you should apply the contour towards your forehead or the upper sides of the cheeks to make your cheeks look pulled in.
Above the contour, do add a splash of your highlighter, which should be lighter than your original skin colour.

Say Bye To Your Double Chin

The jawline plays an important role and draws the ending line of your face and thus, completing its shape.
To shape your jawline, you need two makeup products - a bronzer and a contour.
Apply the bronzer on the jawline and blend it using a brush.
On this blend, add a light shade of your contour.
This lets you hide your double chin as well.
