How to Look Polished in Minutes
Copy fall's chic trends in less time than it takes your coffee to brew by following these expert celebrity hairstyle and makeup tricks
The look: Contoured cheeksContoured cheeks are synonymous with fall and this season is no exception. Rouged cheekbones, like the ones seen here on Leighton Meester, are an easy way to add definition to your face (and make it look thinner) and quickly put your makeup look on-trend.
Application tips: "I use the dot technique to apply color to cheek[s] instead of large, sweeping motions. I always tell my clients to look up, and then apply the blush high on their cheekbones -- it's like an instant face lift," says Devitt. "For a bit of extra glow, use fingertips and apply a gel [blush] right onto the apples," she says, suggesting you blend it with a fingertip. (try Sue Devitt Gel-To-Powder Blush in North Cape, $20). To diffuse the color a bit, dust a bit of pressed powder around the apples of your cheeks.
