This TikTok makeup hack for ultra-sculpted cheekbones has been approved by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Let’s be honest: applying bronzer is an art form. And even seasoned makeup wearers need a TikTok makeup hack or two to achieve the lit-from-within glow the A listers do so well. Do it wrong and you’ll be a rich shade of streaky tangerine… do it right and you’ll be glistening with that golden hue that only comes from sailing around the Greek islands (while smothered in SPF, of course).

When it comes to mastering that kind of glow, nobody does it quite like model-turned-beauty-mogul Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Her subtle golden tan? Impeccable. Her sculpted cheekbones? Like something carved by the Masters. Years of having top makeup artists work their magic on her skin has taught the model everything she needs to know about applying makeup – and now, she’s passing on her tips via TikTok. Sign. Us. Up.

According to Rosie HW, the first step is to use a cream bronzer with a greyish undertone – a “bone-like colour” rather than a warm tan, to mimic a shadow under your cheekbones. She, of course, suggests using Rose Inc Solar Infusion Soft-Focus Cream Bronzer, £28. An easy-to-blend cream formula goes on smoothly and is easy to blend for a natural finish, which is key to achieving the model’s effortless off-duty glam.

Then, it’s all about the application. Using a brush, Rosie advises that you start at the back of the cheeks “and kind of push the brush forwards”, sweeping it along the cheekbone towards the nose. The result: you pack in a denser amount of colour at the highest point of the cheekbone, creating a subtle shadow that lifts the face. As she explains: “You don’t want it starting from the cheek.” (That’s how the satsuma effect can sneak in.)

To finish, Rosie also suggests brushing a little bronzer across the eye sockets for a “quite lazy” approach to eye colour. Minimal effort with maximum impact – now that’s a summer makeup trend we can all get on board with.
