The colourful cousin of contouring, blush draping is big news this season. A clever technique that creates shape and structure, draping employs a uniform colour to visually lift the high points of the face like browbones and cheekbones while imparting a healthy flush to skin—as spied on the runway at JW Anderson, Adam Selman and Kenzo. As MECCA’s Head of Artistry Tony Baumann explains: “The key here is to find a warm hue for your skin tone: peachy shades suit fair complexions, while pinky-red hues flatter olive tones and darker complexions.”

MECCA Pro Tip: Keep the rest of your look fresh and modern with brushed-up brows.
