And what better way to elevate your makeup routine than by changing your blush game. The right blush does more than just give you a fake flush. It brightens your face and instantly makes you look lively. But why settle for the simple hint of pink on the apples of your cheeks? It’s time to step out of your comfort zone and try something more daring and bolder!
As luck may have it, we’ve gathered our 4 favourite out of this world blush trends that you need to try right NOW! So, get your flush on and brush out the haters.
Sun-kissed skin is no longer a trending topic, now it’s all about sunset skin. People are opting for bold orange shades over rosy pink cheeks. This look leaves you with a soft sunset glow. But beware, if it’s done wrong, you may end up looking like Charlie’s Oompa Loompa.
The Drunk Blush Look
As interesting as this trend sounds, it has nothing to do with applying it while inebriated. This trend works best with minimal makeup. So that means keeping your heavy eye makeup and bold lipstick at bay. To perfect this look, you need to apply the blush on your cheeks and over your nose. This will give you an almost burnt look like you just frolicked in the summer sun.
The 80s’ are back and better than ever. The blush bomb trend involves adding a splash of colour that goes from your cheeks all the way up to your temples. If you think you were born in the wrong era, then here’s your chance to embrace the past.
This look instantly brightens your complexion and leaves you with a youthful flush. The technique to rock this trend is to apply it not only on your cheekbones but on your eyelids as well. Don't get this trend confused with draping though. Watercolour blush is all about layering different shades while draping is all about sculpting. In order to perfect this look, you need to first apply the lighter shades before adding on the darker tones.
Leave it to Japan to come up with the craziest trends. This one involves applying a bright pink shade, very high on your cheekbones, almost right under your eyes. As crazy as it sounds it does give you that natural rosy glow. You just need to complete it with pink eyeshadow and lipstick and voila! You’re done!
