High cheekbones are often considered the essence of beauty. If you look at any high fashion models, you will see that most of them all possess high cheekbones. Numerous studies done have shown that men prefer women who have big eyes, full lips, small nose, thin jaw line and high cheekbones. The same is true for men. Women tend to be attracted to males who have broad shoulders, prominent jaw line, tall height and high cheekbones. High cheekbones are a sign of masculinity that is often associated with strength, power and security. The vast majority of people with high cheekbones are born with them.
I wasn't born with high cheekbones, how do I get them?
An expensive but effective method of getting high cheekbones is by getting plastic surgery. Most clinics offer cheek augmentation, which is a procedure that involves the plastic surgeon to insert either a solid silicone implant or high-density porous polyethylene over the cheekbone. The surgeon will usually insert the implant through the upper region of the gum line, near the top of your mouth. The surgeon can also make an external incision underneath the eye, however this method is unpopular because it leaves a scar. If the procedure is done successfully, the patient will have a more prominent looking face. Even though plastic surgery can provide you with high cheekbones within a few hours there are also a few risks involved with the procedure. There is always the risk of infection, blood cots, severe swelling and asymmetry.
How can I get high cheekbones naturally?
You cannot change the bone structure of your face. However, you can change the fat that is stored in your cheeks. There are simple exercises that you can do to get rid of fat cheeks. One way is to shed a few pounds. If you lose weight in your overall body, your cheeks will look tighter and less rounder, which will bring out your cheeks more. Make it a habit to do cardiovascular workouts to help burn fat by going on a 30-minute jog or hitting the treadmill at the gym. Drinking 8 glasses of water will also help you lose those chubby cheeks and help you obtain those high cheekbones.
Fortunately for women, there is one other option besides dieting and working out. Makeup, if applied properly, can give the illusion of high cheekbones. In order for this to work, you will need a blush, (I recommend NARS Powder Blush Cheek Color) shadow and a liquid highlighter. Start off with the highlighter and apply it right on to your cheeks. This will make your cheeks "pop." In order to place even more emphasis, apply shadow underneath your cheekbones, creating the illusion of depth. After you have completed these two steps, apply blush to the area where the highlighter and the shadow meet. This simple makeup technique will make you look like you have a more sculpted facial appearance and higher cheekbones.
