Tip: Try Contouring

Contouring is one way to really enhance your natural dimples and make them deeper. Use an eyeshadow brush (preferable one that is shaped like a pencil) and an eyeshadow that’s a natural shade just a tad deeper than your skin tone. Dab it into your dimples and blend it in to the surrounding skin.

Tip: Avoid Applying Blush on Dimples

Tip: Create Dimples with a Pencil
