    I really want high cheek bones! Does anyone know of a particular type of cosmetic/make up that might make my cheek bones looks higher and more noticeable?
    I don't know what it is about them but I really admire people who are lucky enough to have them - I think it makes people's face structure and complexion look so bloody gorgeous!

    Benefit Cosmetics make two highlighters which are great for using on cheekbones. They're called Moonbeam (golden-pink) and Highbeam (silvery-pink) They're £15 each, but last a hella long time. I'm quite pale, and use Highbeam to dot along my cheekbones - it draws attention to them, and gives a dewey, natural look.

    The Benefit team call it: 'Supermodel in a bottle!'

    Get mineral blush, it's the latest craze!
    I'm sorry but this is just excellent - and it smells nice too, yet it gives you a shimmering finish
    This is just cute!

    I gave up trying to create high cheekbones long ago. Nothing I do really works, I've tried the whole shadow contour and highlight thing but it just looked false, maybe I applied it wrong but I don't suit looking even a little bit made up, I just look like a bit of a ******/6 year old raiding her mum's make-up box.
    Accept your low cheekbones-ness

    Search on Youtube for "face contouring" and there'll be some makeup tutorial videos on there showing how to define your cheekbones.

    I personally use Benefit Dallas bronzer as its a really strong but flattering colour. Then suck your face in a bit so you can see where your cheekbones are, apply quite a strong stripe of colour on the top of the cheekbones but then blend it in a bit so it looks natural.

    A pinker, slightly more shimmery powder or liquid on the top of that makes the light reflect off your cheekbones so they look even more defined.

    try to make them look dramatically more defined or higher just looks tacky most of the time in the day, so just emphasize them a little with a tiny bit of high lighter/shimmer on the top of your natural cheek bone in a bit of a streak(blended in, obv, you don't want to look like david bowie) and a little bronzer dusted underneath and in that sort of hollow between jaw & cheek bone

    well it depends on your skin tone, if youve got warm golden colored skin, use a shimmery light reflective beige with a darker brown, and appy the shimmer with a brush on the main bit of the bone you see, suck in your cheeks when doing this, and then with the darker colour, you want a line of that going in the HOLLOW part of your cheek where theres no bone-as this creates a shadow. If your pale, use a light rose, and then a plum colour.

    I know it isn't.
    I've tried all the different make-up techniques and even booked an appointment at this beautician's because the lady said she'll show me how to do it properly.

    When you apply blusher, do it with a brush and while you're smiling so the apples of your cheeks stand out. Apply by brushing in circles, and brush upwards from the apples. Use a darker shade - I use a blusher palette with a peachy pink, a pinky pink, a darker pink and a bronze, so I pick up more of the bronze - diagonally on your own cheekbones leading up to the outside corner of your eye. It'll give your cheekbones more definition.

    I use a blusher and highlighter by Collection 2000- its seems to do the trick. I dont think my cheek bones arent particularly high, but they are quite prominent so definately use blusher and highlighter
