No cheekbones? Here’s how to fake them

This is how you fake it ELES Cosmetics supermodel cheekbonesIf you love watching runway fashion shows and scanning through fashion magazines, you’ll notice that trends vary from season to season. And while seasonal looks change in a blink of an eye, classic makeup never ever goes out of style. If you envy those supermodel cheekbones and think you’re far from gifted, good news girl, you can fake them and still look natural. Here’s how:

Create a dewy base

Transform your skin’s texture from pale to a natural, healthy glow with your favourite liquid foundation/BB cream mixed with a little illuminating serum OR try our NEW luminous CC Cream. A clean canvas always makes a great artwork and this can easily be achieved using premium mineral makeup. Top with a finishing powder to seal.

We recommend: ELES Liquid Powder Foundation, ELES Age-Defying BB Cream 30, ELES Luminous CC Cream 20, ELES Liquid Illuminator, ELES Mineral Gemstone Finishing Powder


Always aim for a natural look. You might want to skip the overly chiseled cheeks like those of the runway stars as you don’t want to look fake while you’re out dealing with your usual stuff. Using a blush brush, lightly apply a mineral bronzer one shade darker to the hollows of the cheeks and you’ll see a slimmer shape of your face starting to form. Apply highlighter right on top of the apple of your cheeks and on your t-zone for a natural shine.

We recommend: ELES Mineral Bronzer


Let your cheeks stand out! Using the right shade, apply blush on the apple of your cheeks. The rich colour of the blush against the bronzer will create a beautiful contrast and will fulfil the contouring technique.

We recommend: our highly pigmented ELES Baked Blush
