How Can I Make My Cheekbones More Defined?

Having well-defined cheekbones can play an important role in giving your face a more pleasing, sculpted appearance. High cheekbones provide a distinct facial structure that adds to one’s overall attractiveness and beauty. Additionally, it can create the illusion of youthfulness and vitality as they help to draw attention away from wrinkles or other signs of aging.

How to make cheekbones more defined?

Cheekbones can be made more defined with the help of makeup, contouring, and facial exercises.


One of the best ways to make your cheekbones more defined is to use contouring. Contouring involves using makeup products such as bronzer, highlighter, and blush to create shadows and highlights on your face that will help define your facial features. For example, when you apply dark shades of makeup to the hollows of your cheeks and temples and lighter shades to the high points of your face, you create a “shadow” effect that brings out the angles in your cheekbones.

You can also use a brush or sponge to blend the colors into each other more seamlessly. Finally, after you’ve applied the dark shades, you can use a highlighting product to bring attention to your cheekbones and make them stand out.

Facial exercises

Facial exercises, combined with a healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet, can help improve the definition of your cheekbones.

Facial exercises target specific facial muscles that can help strengthen these areas and allow for more defined cheeks. For example, you can try smiling wide while squeezing your eyes shut and holding them for several seconds. The good idea is to consider facial massage techniques along with your exercises to stimulate blood flow and promote muscle tone in this area.

Additionally, you may even want to incorporate some light cardio into your daily routine, as this can help build overall muscle tone throughout your body, including those under the skin around your cheekbones.

With dedication and consistency, you can see results just after a few weeks of a consistent facial exercise routine and healthy lifestyle.

injecting fillers into your cheeks

Getting filler

If you’re looking for a more permanent solution, you could consider injecting fillers into your cheeks.

Dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, and Radiesse can add volume to the cheeks, creating a more contoured appearance. When injected in specific depths and amounts, these fillers can create more prominent-looking cheeks while also providing a natural look that doesn’t appear overdone or artificial. However, it’s important to note that results will vary depending on the type of filler used and how much is injected into each area. Besides, results may last anywhere from several months up to two years or longer.

A consultation with a skilled professional is recommended in order to ensure you get the best possible results for your desired look.
