There is no arguing that this has been the year of blushes. With so many different techniques and trends, how do you not fall for such flush, right?
From the cold girl look that has taken social media by storm to our summer favourite pink flush, your options are vast. But finally, after trial and error, we’ve shortlisted three viral blush techniques that are .
The sun-kissed look
If you’re looking for the “I’ve just run a mile” rosy flush, then this technique is the one for you. With more of a natural finish, this blush technique makes your skin look all flushed and glowing.
Apply a generous sweep of bright pink blush along your cheekbones, onto your temples, and across the bridge of your nose. You can even go so far to applying it a bit on your chin. Then blend it all out so it looks lived-in.
There’s a big move to the 70s disco era, and blush draping was going to make an inevitable comeback given its wonderful power to create chiselled cheekbones where none existed.
Start by applying blush on the apples of your cheeks and blend it along your cheekbones and up onto your temples. It’s like ‘draping’ the edges of your face but with a blush. It helps sharpen your features rather than softening them as blush usually tends to do.
This blush technique requires you to use different shades of blushes for that beautiful ombre look. Start with a deeper pigment on the apples of your cheeks and blend it out towards your cheekbones with a lighter pigment for a more natural look. It’s perfectly suited even if you are a beginner.
Our pro tip: Apply a little highlighter on top of your cheekbones and watch your face spell out that rosy glow everyone is trying to achieve.
