How To Get the Perfect Fall Cheeks

This guest post is from Vivalaqbee03. Check out all of her Cheek Week Beauty posts here!

We all know that once the seasons change, so does our make up. Continuing to wear the same foundation, concealer, blush and various other products as you did in the summer doesn’t work. I love eye make up, but having the right type of blush brings life to anyone’s face. This week is going to be dedicated to cheeks so make sure you visit everyday to get the 411 on how to make your cheeks fabulous. This post is going to give you the key to having the perfect fall cheeks.

Perfect Fall Cheek Examples

Kim Kardashian

Gabrielle Union

Zoe Saldana

Hayden Panettiere

FIRST and MOST IMPORTANT: Drink water. In the winter the cold air can cause the skin to dry out and flake easily. The trick to having the perfect blush look in the winter is having a certain glow to your skin. If the skin is not properly taken care of, then there is not way to bring out the natural glow in your skin so drink up 🙂

— You want the skin to look glowing and warm. The following tips will help you achieve this look. Let me know which works for you.

Helpful Blush TIP :): Always tap excess off before you apply it to your face.

1. Bronze Up To It: One way to achieve this look is to apply a sheer shimmery bronzer to contour the cheeks (use shimmery bronzer with a very light hand). Use a kabuki brush or the brush that you use to apply your blush. Once you have the bronzer in place, slightly drag it up to the apples of the cheeks. You do not need to reapply bronzer for this step, just simply drag the bronzer to the apples of the cheeks. Next go into a warm color blush and apply it to the apples of the check. This will help you achieve Hayden’s look  in the picture above.

Example of a Warm Blush: Benefit’s Coralista

2. Round It Out: Another flattering way to bring color to your face in the fall is to focus on the bottoms of the apples of the cheeks. This look can be seen on Km Kardashian and Gabrielle Union above. Apply your blush lightly in apply letter U swipe. Apply a highlight the upper half of the apples of the cheek. This look is simple as 1 2 3.

Example of a highlighter: Urban Decay’s Urbanglow

3. Livin’ the High Life: The last technique I am going to talk about is bringing attention to the cheekbones. This technique is great for those with high cheekbones. You can see an example of this in Zoe Saldana’s picture above.Start by applying the blush to the apples of the cheeks and then sweep the color back towards the temples. Next place your choice of highlighter on the tip of your index finger and trace your cheekbone upward. This will give your face an instant lift.

Viva La Recessionista: Plato’s Closet

So I know that most of you have heard of Plato’s Closet or stores like it. For those of you that haven’t, I’m going to fill you in. Plato’s Closet is a store where you can take your gently used articles of clothing and get money back. I have been purchasing a lot of pieces for my wardrobe and I definitely need to make some room for my new pieces. The most logical thing I can do is to take the gently used items to Plato’s Closet. The stuff they cannot use, I will take to Goodwill. Never throw clothes away! Remember there are others that are less fortunate.

That leads me to next week’s video. I will document my process of picking out clothing to take to Plato’s Closet. I will also let you know how much money I received in exchange for my clothing. I will give a full and truthful experience review. If you are considering do something like this, next weeks video will be a big help to you. I have heard horror stories of going to stores like this, but I want to experience it for myself and take you on the ride along with me. To each its own I say.  Don’t forget to check back next week for my video. Soooo Excited.
