Like her her older sister Kim, Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Kylie Jenner is synonymous with the word 'contour' - but according to her and her trusty make-up artist Hrush Achemyan, we've been doing it all wrong!

Thanks to make-up maestros Charlotte Tilbury and Mario Dedivanovic we've learnt to sculpt our cheekbones by taking a taupe or peach-toned blush to our cheeks in sweeping circular motions, but that's not how Hrush and Kylez do things.

Oh no.

Kylie took to Snapchat (where else?!) to show Hrush in action and we were so surprised to see her reaching for a fuchsia (yep, that's bright pink) blush and a face powder brush (not your usual flat-topped blusher blush, FYI) to provide her with a cracking set of cheekbones.


In the ten second clip, beauty genius Hrush mentioned that applying a teeny tiny amount of vibrant blush to the cheeks in swift dabbing or tapping motions lends the best results when going for a contoured look - and we can definitely see where she's coming from - Kylie never looks anything short of perfect, right?

Hrush and Kylie looked to Tom Ford's blusher in no.6 Wicked but if that's a little too dear, we've found a surefire colour match in Sleek MakeUP's blush in Flamingo - a total steal at £4.49. Hurrah!

We also adore Revlon's Face Powder Brush, £4.99 for precise application and we can guarantee that it won't leave behind a shed-load of bristles while you tap away like the professionals.
