WATCH: 4 unexpected ways to wear blush

We all know that blush has the power to transform and elevate your look, but are you using your favourite flush of colour to its maximum potential? From on-the-go application to out-of-this-world dimension, we think blush is the multitasker you need to create endless looks. Ready to break some beauty rules and use your blush in new and unexpected ways? Press play!

DEFINE THE EYES

In this look, we apply the Westman Atelier Baby Cheeks Blush Stick in ‘Poppet’ on the eyelid and lower lash line using a small, dense eyeshadow brush (we used the Chantecaille Shade and Sweep Eye Brush!). Blend until the product is soft and diffused.

SCULPT AND DEFINE

Who says only contour creates dimension? To achieve soft shape and definition, we love to apply the MECCA MAX Off Duty Blush Stick in ‘Moody’ with a dense brush under the cheekbones — try using the MECCA MAX Complexion Buffing Brush.

CHEEKS THAT POP

For the ultimate pop of unexpected colour, take a soft, tapered brush — like the NARS Yachio Kabuki Brush — and sweep NARS Blush in ‘Exhibit A’ on the apples of the cheeks.

YOUR LIPS BUT BETTER

To create the highly coveted ‘plump and just-bitten’ lip look — hello, Hailey Bieber! — take the MECCA MAX Off Duty Blush Stick in ‘Moody’ again and blend it across the lips using the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Brush.

TURN UP THE DRAMA

To enhance the striking effect of a diffused fuchsia eye look, add dramatic volume and lift to the lashes with the MECCA MAX EYE MAX Mega Volume Mascara.
