Despite losing weight i still have fat cheeks! I have been told dangly straight earrings and pull hair back at sides ... any more tricks make up, hair or otherwise?? I currently put soft peach blusher on the apple of my cheeks then blend back along cheek bones - is that going to make it worse as i look like a vampire without blusher?!
I am watching with great interest! I haven't managed the "losing weight" part yet but even when I was slimmer I always had chipmunk cheeks (as a boy once told me when I was 12 - such a charmer...)
I use the blusher trick as well, on the apples of my cheeks and then a darker (not too dark and not shimmery) bronzer brushed in a subtle, well blended line under that, going from the lower centre part of my cheek up towards my temples. Hope that makes sense!
Thanks Mustbepatient - bronzer under the blusher line, must give that a go, tho i am not the best at blending so may take loads of practice.
I have to say i was disbelieving re pulling my hair back but actually they do look better when i do (well to me)! Off to Amazon to stock up on dangly non hoop earings (to elongate face according to my hairdresser).
Careful with fav contouring - you don't want to look like a mid 00s Boy George. Maybe think less about "minimising your cheeks" more about "flattering your face shape". You probably have a round or square shape face. Have a look at makeup tips and hair styles for that maybe.
