So this last saturday I was just sitting around playing with my makeup and I thought I discovered a makeup miracle! Little did I know, everybody knew this a long time back :(

What I found (or so I tell myself) is that you can use pearly white sparkly eyeshdow on the apples of your cheeks for an awesome brightening effect! Especially after contouring when the hollows of your cheeks are a little darker, try apply the white shadow on the apples of you cheeks and notice the immediate transformation! Its just amazing how the whole face brightens up and your cheeks just stand out ! This is especially great if you want to create the illusion of having great cheeks!!

I think this goes well with the beauty rule I learnt from Josi : Dark colors make facial features RECEDE and light colors make features PROTRUDE.
Hence the white makes your cheeks stand out , while the contouring using a darker color makes the hollow of your cheek look a little deeper!

Try it, and lemme know how it worked !
