To make your existing dimples look more prominent, contour them. It is simpler than it sounds. All you need is an eyeshadow brush and an eyeshadow shade that’s two shades darker than your natural skin tone. Lightly dab some eyeshadow inside your smile pockets and blend it out.
Tip #02: Apply blush and highlighter strategically

After contouring your dimples make sure you apply the blush and highlighter far away from it. Don’t let these two products come close to your lower cheeks where you have contoured your dimples. Blending it towards your lower cheeks or dimples will take the focus away and hide your fake dimples before they even look visible.

Moving on to the part you were waiting for all this while. So, what if you don’t have dimples naturally, there’s nothing that makeup can’t hide or create. Fake it till you make it using an eyeliner pencil and eyeshadow. Place a brown eyeliner pencil like the Lakme 9 to 5 Naturale Gel Eye Liner - Walnut Brown an inch away from the corner of your lips and create a half-circle. Blend it out slightly, dab a similar shade eyeshadow on it and blend that too. Say hello to fake dimples!
