Pressed powder is more than just a way to set your make-up. It can be an all-purpose beauty tool if you know how to use it to it’s full potential. A pressed face powder is the ideal way to naturally sculpt and slim your face and give your cheeks a natural-looking glow.

To define and highlight your cheeks, simply take an angled blush brush, such as Elizabeth Arden’s Blush Brush and swirl a couple of times in a pressed powder that is a couple of shades darker than your natural skin tone. Thin Lizzy Make-up 6 in 1 Professional Powder is a great natural looking powder that can be built up gradually to achieve the colour level you desire.

Now, smile to find your cheek bones. Place the brush just underneath the line of your cheek bone nearest to your mouth the gently sweep upwards toward your temple. By shading just under the cheek bone in a pressed powder that is slightly darker than your natural skin tone, you’ll create a realistic looking glow which will have a natural slimming effect on your face. Pretty nifty, eh?
