Kim Parmenter, 53, from Chelmsford, Essex, wanted to learn how to slim her face with make-up. Cue the Woman’s Own makeover team!


Mum-of-three and grandma Kim wears subtle make-up during the day for her job as a pharmacy technician. ‘At the weekend, I love to experiment with different shades on my eyes but I don’t know how to define them or the rest of my complexion,’ says Kim. ‘I’d really like to learn how to enhance my cheekbones and slim down my roundish face.’

Step 1

Step 1. Highlighter

Smile to get the apples of the cheeks then apply Elf Mineral Glow in Shimmer, £7, to the highest point, sweeping back towards the hairline.

Step 2

Step 2. Bronzer

Sweep a matte bronze shade underneath your natural cheekbone with an angled blending brush in an upwards motion. We love Smashbox Bronze Lights Bronzer, £23.

Step 3

Step 3Liner

Defining your eyes will make them pop. Use a soft pencil like Clinique Cream Shaper for Eyes in Chocolate Lustre, £14, drawing as close to the lashline as possible.

‘I knew my cheekbones were lurking somewhere! I’m going to try this at home.’
