How Did Cheek Contouring Come About?
Contouring your face with makeup has been an insider secret for years until Kim and social media gave it to the public. However it goes goes back as far as the 1400s when stage actors would use soot on their faces so their audience could see their expressions better! In the 1800s artificial lighting was invented so they then moved on to pancake makeup.
In the 1900s actors and public embraced the full face of makeup and contouring – Marlene Dietrich and Marilyn Monroe in particular are still makeup icons. In 1945 max factor even released his own contouring tutorial for the public (a vlogger in the making?) From Contouring to Cheek Fillers.
Rather than the the painfully time consuming act of daily contouring many of us chose to go for something more reliable and time saving. Today we have our modern and safe Hyaluronic Acid cheek fillers such as Juvederm but getting these cheeks goes as far back as 1893!”
History of Cheek Fillers and Contouring
In 1893 the first cheek implant was recorded! This was done by removing fat from an arm and placing it directly into the cheek, this practice is still done today in many places.. In the 1940’s and 50’s silicone was used but as it was causing many side effects it was banned until 1992 when a new safer form of silicone was created!
You’ve probably heard horror stories about collagen in cheek fillers and lip fillers causing that swollen and fake look of the 80’s and 90’s. Collagen fillers were actually made of animal products such as bovine and were available as implants and injections. In the 2000’s the new and safer Hyaluronic Acid cheek fillers were approved! Now today we have a natural and safe and proven option of injectable cheek fillers.”
