Cheek Cheats

Cheek Cheats feat. Hoursglass, Tom Ford, Chanel and Charlotte Tilbury

After recent posts that have covered base makeup, today I'm bringing you a cheat sheet for cheek - chiselled cheekbones and a golden glow.

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow, I use the matte taupe shade to contour the hollows of (fake the appearance of) my cheekbones.  This doesn't aggrivate my oily prone skin or emphasise scars. Then using a large fluffy brush, I dust a light layer of the Tom Ford Bronzing Powder in the matte shade Terra over my entire face for a subtle injection of warmth.  Lending itself well to the makeup novice, being cool-toned and matte, this never looks muddy or orange.  It doesn't accentuate pores. 

To add colour, I've been alternating between two.  Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Dim Infusion which is a gorgeous muted soft coral/peach shade which brings my pale skin tone to life.  It retains its colour flawlessly throughout the day.  Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi Colour in Mariniere 01 worn as a sheer veil of colour, gives my skin a natural looking, fresh healthy glow. A foolproof, soft finish, it's wholly impossible to over do it with this one.


  1. That Ambient Light Blush is just too beautiful! I've yet to buy anything from Hourglass but that needs to change asap!! Great post :D
