The Amazonian clay scultpting stick comes in Park Ave Princess, a light golden bronze that makes your cheeks look naturally thin as opposed to sunken in or worse, painted on.
The system is super simple to use, as well. Start by applying the contour stick underneath your natural cheekbone. We found that it looks the most natural when you start from the back and work forward, making the thickest and darkest part of your contour line directly under the plumpest part of the apple of your cheek. Next, take the slanted end of the blending brush to smooth out the line. Follow the contour line and pull the brush down and toward the mouth to get a natural-looking blend. Finally, use the smaller, rounder end of the brush to smooth out any remaining harsh lines. The result is a very subtle yet noticeable slimmer and more defined cheek.
Try tarte Amazonian Clay Face Slenderizing System ($28.50) for yourself. It's available exclusively to QVC until November 30.
