Leighton Meester’s Perfectly Contoured Cheeks

Contoured cheeks are synonymous with Fall and this season is no exception. Rouged cheekbones, like the ones seen here on Leighton Meester, are an easy way to add definition to your face, make it look thinner and quickly turn your makeup look trendy.

If only we could all be born with naturally high and defined cheek bones. Most of us, however, need a little help to get the perfect contour and shape. Here’s how to create a Leighton-like look in three easy steps. First, apply a primer on your face to help to create an even surface for your makeup. Then apply a foundation that’s one or two shades darker than your skin tone to the area of your cheeks that hollows out when you pucker up. Blend well, so that there’s no line.

Use a peachy apricot or a brown-based blush on the apples of your cheeks and be sure to blend well. Lastly, shine and define. Use a light golden or shimmery yellowish powder on the area right above your cheekbones. One swipe with the brush should be enough for a glowing accent. Finish with Skindinavia’s Original Finishing Spray to keep your sexy contoured cheeks in place.
