Spring is in the air and we're ready to go wild with hot, blooming face color. Blush is not just for apples of cheeks after all! Here, makeup artist Val Harvey shows us how to go gorgeously wild with cheek color to create a defined, sultry look that pops.
Watch Val create a bold blush look that wows by layering different blush formats!
Take a hot hue of buildable cream blush and place color onto both the apples of cheeks and high on the cheekbone using a finger or a small, tapered makeup brush. Press color gently into skin to create a seamless effect and preserve the dewiness of the formula.
Using a full, fluffy makeup brush, blend a berry-colored powder blush right over where you've applied your cream blush. This adds density!
Dust a metallic highlighter onto the tops of cheekbones. Blend in well to create a luminous, light-catching glow.
Cut into the cheek by applying a concealer right under the cheekbone. Be sure to choose a concealer shade that's two shades darker than your natural skin tone.
Now apply a matte foundation all over your face to pull all colors and contours together. The result softens all the bright colors and sharp contours, resulting in a noticeable, but natural looking effect.
