Keira Knightley's sculpted cheekbones


> Keira's beauty secret
Her sculpted cheekbones, achieved with dark blusher. This has a narrowing effect on her face and it brings out her eyes by drawing attention to the top of the face.

> Who can copy it?
Anyone can copy this look but avoid wearing loud lippy at the same time (it can emphasize bony features). You can also soften the shape of your face by adding waves to your hair or feathering it at the front.

> Technique
Apply a dark blusher to your cheekbones and blend up towards the temples. Then, for contrast, apply a lighter shade to the part of the cheeks that sticks out when you smile. To finish off, add a touch of iridescent powder to the top part of your cheeks.
