Molly Ringwald has inspired girls since the ’80s, and now she’s back as a self-assured grown woman with plenty of wisdom in the beauty department. Ringwald recently confessed to that she now wears significantly less makeup than she did in her teenage years, but the length of time that it took for her to get to that point taught her a few neat tricks where makeup is concerned.

“Somebody also told me a trick today about cheeks,” Ringwald told the news source. “She said to think of them like Neapolitan ice cream sandwiches: vanilla, strawberry, chocolate. So white on top, pink on the apples, and shading on the bottom. Then blend, blend, blend.”

Ringwald’s explanation is contouring made easy, but none of this advice is anything new to those skilled in the art of highlighting. Adding a basic sheen to your mug isn’t hard – just use a cream highlighter on your cheekbones, browbones, temples and on your cupid’s bow for a picture-perfect dewy look.
