Let’s be real – we’ve all used makeup to alter the features that make us feel insecure.
So even if your insecurities are niche, don’t worry, there’s probably someone else who feels just the same way and has invented a makeup technique to deal with it.
Speaking of, it turns out there’s an entire community of baby-faced individuals sharing tips on how to contour their way to a more chiseled appearance on TikTok.
The trend even garnered the interest of NikkieTutorials, who tried out the technique for herself and said it made her “look so sculpted and skinny… I love it.”
So how does it work?
The trick to emulating Ledger’s sculpted look lies in creating contour lines that delve into a fork-shaped road at the apples of the cheek.
Depending on your face shape, you can keep these swerves of cream contour in a close proximity to your cheekbones, or you can pull the product to wrap around the apples of your cheeks and meet your jawline.
Additional lines can be drawn along the jawline, edges of the hairline and around the point of the nose to really exaggerate the technique further too.
