With her gorgeously defined facial features, there's no doubt that British supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whitely hit the genetic jackpot. Still, even models enjoy the benefits of expertly applied makeup to make their features pop on the red carpet and Rosie's secret weapons are sculpting and highlighting powder! Failsafe and foolproof, these makeup artist must-haves provide a finished look that gives your cheekbones a subtle, luminous lift without the appearance of heavy contouring.
Sculpt + Highlight
Take the guesswork out of sculpting and highlighting by choosing a palette that can do both! The perfect palette will include a darker shade meant for contouring and a lighter shade meant for highlighting, both of which are perfectly suited to match your skin tone.
Get the Look
Apply a medium-coverage liquid foundation with a satin finish. Apply the product using a foundation sponge, pressing it into the skin for a more natural, yet flawless, finish. Mask any dark circles or blemishes with concealer. Just like your foundation, tap the product over the area you want to conceal rather than smearing it.
Take your palette and use a contouring brush to apply the darkest shade into the hollows of your cheekbones. It might help to make a fish face in the mirror so that you know exactly where to apply the powder. Use your brush to blend it out, and then build up the powder as you need to achieve the definition you want.
Now, use a new brush to pick up the lightest shade and apply it to the high points of your face: the top of the cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, the brow bones and the Cupid's bow. All set!
