How to get the perfect cheekbone effect

Recently i'v become a fan of creating the cheekbone effect aka contouring,using bronzer.
Recently I have lost weight so my cheekbones are way noticeable but before i didn't have cheekbones i'd always use a brown bronzer (non glittery) to get the perfect affect.
So here we go

"Higher (more defined) cheekbones

If you're craving more defined cheekbones, or you wish they're higher, try this trick of darkening under the cheekbones (you can feel the bones under your skin) and highlighting on top of them. If you want you can add blush on the apples, but make sure you're not adding blush to the shadow part of the contouring because that would look very weird." - cee meecheekbonescheekbonesRiahanaRiahanahow tohow toTyra banksTyra banks

In India and Bollywood, generally people like low cheekbones or round and/or full faces-- think Bhaghshree or Aishwarya (they had no high cheekbones in the start of their career. Aish later added 'cheekbones' based on makeup but her best beauty times was when she started with no cheekbones). they like doll faces- young.

high cheekbones ones are called ordinary-- this is not a joke. high cheekbones do age a person very fast.. it looks best on someone very young trying to look older..

High cheekbones are a sign of higher testosterone...So a 'sexy' girl would have this feature. However cuteness is typically associated with lower testosterone and more rounder cheeks. The Eastern aesthetic values hyperfemininity so they like the babyfaced look with small waist and full hips. Western aesthetic likes androgynous sorts with implanted breasts to compensate for lack of fat...so high cheekbones, defined eyebrows, very lean bodies, no hips, and fake boobs.

Blend it well...otherwise it just looks cakie
Make sure your brush isnt too big and to make effect greater use a lighter blush on top of ur cheek bones.
