    take an angled blush brush and swirl it into some bronzer. suck your cheeks in and apply it to the part that is sucked in. then take a fluffy blush brush and swirl it into some blush. dmile and then apply the blush to the apples of your cheeks. blend the 2 and voila!

    you can also use some products made specifically for contouring, but it's a bit harder for me to explain rather than show you.

    you can go to a cosmetic counter at the mall and they will show you the proper techniques and products to use to create the look you are going for!

    blush cannot shape the face. blush, by definition, is colorful and draws attention to itself.

    you want a neutral flesh toned makeup, powder or cream, that is slightly darker than your skintone. press your fingers into your cheeks so that you can feel the depression under the cheekbone. apply the darker color there, fading up towards the ear and downwards toward the mouth. there should be no hard edges.

    some people with broad faces benefit from a little shading at the temples as well.

    look for "The Art of Makeup" by Kevyn Aucoin or "Designing Your Face" by Way Bandy at your local library. Makeup is not easy to do, contrary to what the makeup companies tell you, and you will have to practice practice practice.

    the face is also altered by change in hairstyle and shape of eyebrows. overly thinned brows or round shaped brows will exaggerate a round face.

    most importantly, learn to appreciate YOUR face. be happy with what you have.

    Using a duel blush set, use the darker color under the cheekbone, and apply the lighter color directly on the cheekbone. Apply lightly and don't forget to blend!
