Valentine’s Day is just a few days away, so in lieu of spending an exorbitant amount on a fancy padded bra or wearing an uncomfortable bustier that’s just not you, here’s an affordable way to put a smile on your significant other’s face without having to suffer financial or physical pain. For my three-step method on faking a cleavage with makeup, just keep reading.
Step one: Create a curved “Y” shape Using a small blush brush, sweep a bronzer (one that’s at least one to two shades darker than your natural skin tone) up and down the area between your breasts. Next, envision a curved “Y” shape, sweeping your bronzer along the natural curvature and roundness at the top of each of the breasts.
Step two: Highlight To feign fullness, use a highlighting powder or cream (or a concealer one to two shades lighter than your skin tone) and apply along the upper half, “pushed-up” areas of your breasts. Tip: use the top of your bra line as a general guide.
Step three: Set it and forget it Blend to diffuse any harsh lines and set with a pressed or loose powder.
