The cheekbones, which are your real facial structure beneath the skin, are frequently mentioned when people talk about having “good bone structure” in the face. Our malar bones, which can sit higher or lower depending on the individual, make up the majority of them.
You are said to have high cheekbones if the malar bones are close to the eyes. You most likely have lower cheekbones if they sit lower toward the tip of your nose. Both are equally good because your face’s overall bone structure and the placement of your malar bone are greatly influenced by your genetics and ethnic background. Even though both cheekbone heights are attractive, some cultures prefer higher ones.
Comparing low and high cheekbones
How to Locate Your Cheeks
Use a mirror in a well-lit area if you’re unsure whether you have low or high cheekbones. Thumbs should be placed on the tragus, or the protruding piece of cartilage over the ear canal. Put your index fingers near your nostrils and join them together by drawing them together. You should be able to feel your malar bones when you lightly press. Determine whether your cheekbones are under your eyes in the mirror; if so, your cheekbones are high.
You might wonder what low cheekbones look like. You are said to have low cheekbones if your malar bones are closer to the bridge of your nose.
The widest part of a person’s face typically sits below the eyes, which can lead to a slight dip under the cheekbone in people with high cheekbones as opposed to low cheekbones.
According to science, “high cheekbones” refers specifically to a more pronounced zygomatic bone, which some people consider to be superior. Low cheekbones don’t stand out much and sit in a more “inferior position,” which people also happen to think looks bad. We don’t see anything wrong with either because it’s all subjective.
Why Is There Such A Preoccupation With High Cheekbones?
High cheekbones are regarded as attractive in many cultures because they can also be a sign of a more symmetrical face. Evidently, symmetrical faces are simpler for the brain to comprehend.
High cheekbones are considered a sign of greater willpower, bravery, and power in Asian culture. On the other end of the spectrum, those with low cheekbones are frequently thought of as being more solitary and self-reliant.
Even though high cheekbones are regarded as attractive, low cheekbones are not necessarily unattractive. There are many models who have thin cheekbones. In addition, many stars who are regarded as attractive have low cheekbones. Consider the low-cheekboned celebrities Rachel Bilson and Taylor Swift, who are regarded as two of the world’s most beautiful women. Maggie Gyllenhaal, another famous person with low cheekbones, is regarded by many as a unique beauty.
How to Make Your Cheekbones Look High
Even though aesthetics are a matter of opinion, many people with low cheekbones attempt to mimic the appearance of high cheekbones and learn how to emphasize the structure. If you want to look like Angelina Jolie or Katherine Hepburn, all you have to do is contour, which moves your cheekbone. Before using cheek implants or dermal fillers for enhancement, think about this method.
After using our method to locate your cheekbones, suck in those hollows like a fish to make finding them easier. Start contouring, but stop before the outer edge of the brow to keep it looking more natural. Put a small amount of bronzer beneath your hairline and swipe it down smoothly to meet your cheekbone’s top portion. After that, use a small brush to apply highlighter above the malar bones. Make sure the contour powder and highlighter are the same color. Perhaps other shimmery cosmetics will also work. Be brave and check out some YouTube tutorials.
Low cheekboned people don’t have the luxury of keeping their malar bones razor-sharp as they age, sacrificing that youthful, plump appearance. Keep in mind that losing weight won’t make up for naturally low cheekbones; it might even give them a droopy appearance. Women gradually lose facial fat as they age. A healthy (and hearty) diet and collagen supplements could both help you maintain your youthful fullness.
Artificial cheek augmentation
You can choose to use implants, fillers, or other artificial enhancements. However, there is nothing temporary about these procedures, and this choice may permanently alter how your face looks.
Yes, having low cheekbones may not be ideal. However, they don’t make you less attractive and instead make you stand out in a world of unoriginal, overly photogenic faces. Although it may be in our nature to associate confidence with having high cheekbones, you know what’s even better? Authentic, unadulterated confidence, regardless of appearance. People will be envious whether you have high cheekbones or low cheekbones, so be confident and rock them both with swag.
