Make-up does a lot of wonderful things to your appearance (have you ever seen pictures of celebrities without make-up?), but did you know you could use it to enhance your cleavage as well? Here are some tips to help you enhance your cleavage with make-up:
1. Wear a cleavage-enhancing bra and top. First of all, it’s best that you start out with a good push-up bra. Some of the best bra brands for this purpose include Victoria’s Secret, Triumph and Wonderbra. Make sure that you choose the correct size for you, for maximum effect.

You should also choose a low V-neck top, as this has the effect of drawing attention to your cleavage, and making it look larger than it actually is. Thin, horizontal stripes also work to make your chest look more ample.
2. Prepare your make-up. You will need a mirror, a big round brush for application, bronzing powder or a face powder that’s one to two shades darker than your natural color; and a face powder that’s a shade lighter than your natural color. Avoid using powders that are too shimmery, as this could make your trick a little obvious. Have a trusted friend as well who could help you apply the make-up and tell you if your make-up’s just right or a little too much.
3. Apply the make-up. It’s important that you apply your make-up before you wear your top, as this will help avoid you getting the make-up into your blouse (a tell tale sign!). Or, you could wear your top but protect it by putting facial tissue on the top edge.
Wearing your bra, apply the dark powder onto your natural cleavage. Make sure to blend, blend, blend! Do this by doing upward and downward strokes in the shape of the letter V. This shading technique will help make your cleavage look more pronounced than usual.
Next, apply the lighter shade of powder onto the top half of your breasts. This lighter shade will help bring the focus on towards your breasts’ rounded shape, and will make it look larger.
4. Remember that moderation is key. It’s always better to err on the side of moderation than to make your trick look too obvious. And remember the general guideline: feel free to apply more if you’re dressing up for a night event, but keep it less if you’re attending a daytime function.
There you have it! These are just some of the ways to enhance your cleavage with make-up. Though it’s just natural to want to enhance your physical appearance, remember, it’s all about confidence! Stand straight (this will also mean you’d be emphasizing your chest, which is good), wear a smile, and remember that there’s nothing sexier than a woman who loves the way she looks. Good luck, and hope this helped you out!
