Simple_102113While sharp cheekbones have been all the rage in high fashion, round, plump cheeks are making a big comeback this year.

This look has been gaining popularity because of the youthful appearance round cheeks can give. To get this look, there’s no need to run to the doctor. A few well-placed strokes of blush should give you this coveted look without any needles.

Start with Healthy Skin
Your makeup is going to look its best when your skin is in top form. Before applying makeup each morning, cleanse your face and then top with a moisturizer with SPF. Makeup will sit best on clean, well-moisturized skin.


Color Code
First pick a shade of blush that’s not too bright. This look is all about skewing natural, and you want to try to match your makeup to the same color your cheeks actually turn when you blush.


Find Your Apples
If you’re going for the round cheek look, add the most color to the apples of your cheeks.


The easiest way to do this is to smile hard and add a little bit of blush to the very top of the apples of your cheeks. Be conservative with your application and keep adding a little bit more if you want to see more color.


The blush at your apples will give your cheeks a rounder and more youthful appearance.



Happy Skincare!
