Jessica Dunaway, senior colorist and makeup artist at Ted Gibson Salon in Washington, D.C., believes you don’t have to be a model to bring out your cheekbones. Start with your favorite blush. “If you use a powder blush, apply blush with a fluffy brush in a ‘c’ motion on the apples of your cheeks. With a cream blush, use a foundation brush and tap color onto the apples," Dunaway said.

You're almost done! To finish accenting your cheekbones, use a bronzer only two shades darker than your natural skin tone. “Make a fish face and apply bronzer with a brush to the hollows of your cheeks. This will really make your cheekbones pop,” Dunaway said.
