Contoured Cheeks and Red Lips

I am absolutely into the idea of contoured, sculpted cheekbones this season.  Something about defined hollows and prominent highlights speaks loudly to my aesthetic!

Ya'll know that i LOVE the 80s and if they did anything right, it was the sculpted, chiseled cheeks!  My girl Diana Ross did them WELL:

 

That chick is HAUTE!  Anyway, I haven't found a powder that was dark and matte for sculpting that I like, BUT I did purchase some liquid foundation in ebony for contouring.  I'm still on the hunt for a great matte powder and really like the sound of the Sleek contour kit; if only it were readily available in the U.S., but NOOOO it has a $14 shipping fee!  Holy Cow!  That's more than the purchase price :'(  The Make Up For Ever sculpting kit is readily available in the US, but that joint is NOT cheap.  Sigh, dilemma.  I was just given a $20 off card for Sephora that works for orders over $40, so I may just bite the bullet and purchase it.  

 


I tried a slightly sculpted look for work with a bit of dark liquid foundation smudged into the hollows of my cheeks with Exhibit A blush by Nars on the apples of my cheeks and MAC Gold Deposit highlighter on the tops of my cheekbones.  It's not the CHISELED look that I want to eventually achieve and I guess that I need to stop being so scared with the light application!  LOL, totally my fault.  Anyway, here's the makeup look with red lips and SOMEWHAT sculpted cheeks:
