Your sculpted, glowing cheek checklist

Here’s how to create sculpted, glowing cheeks

First: Contour

  1. Suck in your cheekbones and sweep the Contour Wand applicator along your hollows in a horizontal line towards your hairline.

  2. Apply vertical stripes on the sides of your nose and loop underneath. Then, apply on the sides of your forehead, temples and jawline.

  3. Finish by applying along the crease of each eye (to create the illusion of depth).

  4. Use a brush, like the Hollywood Complexion Brush, to buff & blend it all in for a seamless finish.

Then: Highlight

  1. Apply Beauty Light Wand to the top of your cheekbones, bridge of your nose, your chin and above your brow bone. Blend until all you see is a radiant glow.

Lastly: Add blush

  1. Apply Beauty Blush Wand to the apples of your cheeks. Use one dot for a natural daytime vibe, two for a bolder date night look or three for full on disco drama.

  2. Using a brush, like the Hollywood Complexion Brush, blend up along the cheekbones towards the temples (avoiding the eye area) for a lifted effect that makes cheeks pop. In a hurry? No worries. Charlotte says, “the quick drying formula sets in seconds!”
