People have always dreamt of having volumized and enhanced cheekbones, but with the rise of social media platforms, cheekbones are more demanded than ever.
Why are high cheekbones considered attractive and feminine?
We could list thousands of tricks to enhance this area of our face, but why this beauty obsession? What is the reason for this fixation on highlighting our cheekbones?
As we age, the shape of our cheekbones and weight start dropping. Moreover, stress and poor diet can accelerate this aging process. There is no specific age to begin highlighting the cheekbones; perhaps that is why it is such a widespread practice.

If one of the areas of the face is most affected by the passage of time and produces that feeling of a bad face, of sagging of the face... these are the cheekbones or the cheeks. And this is due to the loss of skin tone and tissue volume or lack of projection in this area.
Celebrities such as Bella Hadid, Keira Knightley, and Olivia Wilde, have one thing in common: their sexy cheekbones make them look more feminine and even more attractive, if that’s possible.
If you are not one of those who have marked cheekbones, there are a lot of hacks you can do to achieve a more defined and prominent look using makeup:
Faking High Cheekbones using makeup
1. Apply contour to your cheekbones
As we all learned through Kim Kardashian’s makeup tutorial, we have all seen the difference a good contour technique can make in your look.
By using a contour, whether that is on a cream or powder form, with a shade tone that is darker than your own, you can apply it directly between your cheekbones and jawline, on the bridge of your nose, and both sides of your forehead simulating the sun rays.
2. Use highlighter to enhance your cheekbones
A tiny bit of shimmer never hurts anyone, and even less when we talk about driving attention toward our cheekbones.
Highlighters are a must-product in your beauty routine because they can make a difference in the shape of your face.
You should apply it on the top of your cheekbones for higher cheekbones, and make sure you blend it well.
You can also add it to the corners of your eyes to make them pop.
Non-invasive solutions for higher cheekbones
However, once you get home and apply a makeup remover, your contour will naturally return to how it was before.
So, if you would like to achieve more defined and higher cheekbones without undergoing surgery, other non-invasive solutions are available for you.
1. Threads for accentuating your cheekbones
Threads are one of the treatments that work best when it comes to repositioning the cheekbones because they tighten the skin and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin and can be the star treatment when the flaccidity is not very pronounced.
They are composed of polydioxanone, are absorbable by the body, and create bands that become collagen. That is, the network formed by the threads is transformed into a collagen network.
In a cheekbone with moderate flaccidity, spiculated threads will be placed for an improvement of the cheekbones and a repositioning. In other specific cases, it is advisable to combine this procedure with hyaluronic acid, this type of combination will give the face more volume, a much younger and more vital appearance, and above all, without losing your natural beauty.
2. Dermal Fillers for enhanced cheekbones
Hyaluronic acid fillers for the face are very effective non-surgical methods for enhancing your unique features and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and folds.
For those wanting to achieve significant and prominent cheekbones, you can use hyaluronic acid fillers with the goal of lifting, projecting, defining, or highlighting these areas. Plus, you not only achieve an enhanced, sharp look, but also you are providing your skin with a significant amount of moisture and hydration that will help you get a more youthful and healthy look.
