Try the Trend: blush as contour


Most of us love a good contour, but have you heard?  There's a new way to do it....

1.  Apply a light wash of bronzer, then pick your matte blusher to apply as a contour.
2. This is going higher than regular contour; apply it in the same sort of place, but blend it up onto your cheeks as well.
3. Go for subtle, skin-like colours.  I'm wearing MAC's Melba in this pic, but Sleek's Suede and Fashionista's Butterscotch are also good shouts.
4. Load up on highlighter to contrast and further enhance the illusion of chiselled cheekbones.

I love this!  It's cuts down a step in my make up routine, making it quick enough to do in a rush or when you're having a lazy Sunday.  It's also a little more user-friendly than your standard contouring routine, which I think has quite a bit of room for error.  Just remember not to go wild with your colour statement cheeks here!


  1. I've seen a few girls do this and I love this look! I actually think it works better for my skin tone <3

  2. Love this. Same as Ellen, I've seen a few girls wearing this and I think it looks fab! xx
