The warm weather is right around the corner. We’re all getting ready to shake up our beauty routines to get ready summer. A quick scroll through TikTok will tell you that the biggest beauty trend for summer is blush. This product has the power to transform your face by creating the illusion of a natural face lift.
We’re sharing the beauty trend that everyone is talking about. With these steps, you’ll create a dewy, glowing look that makes it appear like you’ve just got back from a pilates class.
What we love about this look is that it’s universally flattering and the perfect way to transition to your makeup through to spring and summer. Read on to find out how to create a ‘lit from within’ glow for your skin.
The secret to creating a face-lifting flush is to start with a smooth canvas. The first step should always be to give your skin the hydration it needs to be soft to the touch. Start by massaging your favourite moisturiser into your skin.
Before you start using concealer or foundation, you want to use a mattifying primer and one that is rich in hydrating ingredients. If your skin is in need of a little extra TLC, you can kickstart your routine with a sheet mask for extra hydration.
When you want extra glowing skin– for a wedding or a special occasion – you can take the hydration one step further by adding another layer of lightweight moisturizer after applying foundation. This extra layer helps the blush to set into your skin for a soft glow.
Choosing the right blush shade will make or break this beauty trick. You want to choose one that is no more than three shades darker than the natural flush of your cheeks. Sticking within this colour range will make it easier for you to blend it into your skin for a natural face-lifting effect.
If you want to add extra dimension to your look, you can start by using a darker hue on the inner portion of your cheeks. As you move outwards, blend in a lighter shade.
Don’t forget to consider your complexion when choosing your blush shade. If you have a fair or cool complexion, you want to stick to a muted blush shade. Colours like peach and baby pink are your best friend for this trend. If you have a darker or warmer complexion, don’t be afraid to go bright with your blush.
The most important thing is to give your blush a smooth texture. You can choose the blush formula that you prefer best – whether it’s a cream or a stain blush. These two options are usually the best for this trend as they give the illusion of a second skin. Look out for products like Glossier’s ‘Cloud Paint’ or the iconic ‘Benetint’ stain from Benefit.
They’ll add colour to your cheeks and give you a radiant glow without making it look like you’re wearing makeup. Don’t forget to add a setting powder over your blush to pull everything together and keep it looking fresh all day long.
The key to pulling off this makeup trend is all in how you blend your blush. If you’re using a cream formula, you want to apply the cool to your fingers before blending it onto your cheeks. Circular motions are the best way to work as it helps to give you an even finish. A fluffy brush can also help you blend the edges of your blush for a natural look.
Go in with a concealer around your nose to avoid any discoloration that might occur. Doing this trick will make it look like your blush is deeper in your skin and more natural. If you want to create a glass-like complexion, a beauty blender can help you press the blush into your cheeks. Start from the apple of your cheeks before moving upwards towards the temples and down.
Give your skin a lustre finish
Finishing off your makeup look is what will make or break this trend. A cream highlighter will take your look to the next level. The secret to creating a dewy glow is by looking for skincare-based products to used. The Watermelon Glow Dew Drops by Glow Recipe is the perfect way to finish off your makeup look. Focus it on the areas of your face where you would typically use a powder highlighter to add extra lustre to your face.

Blush is a staple makeup product that we don’t often talk about. We usually focus on things like lipstick colours and foundation formulas. We think it’s time to shine a light on blush and how to correctly apply it. If you do it the wrong way, your blush can make your face look like it’s dropped and give it a unflattering finish. Applying your blush correctly means that you can naturally lift your face and give your skin a healthy blush.
