Hey guys! This is actually a request from the lovely Lo who won my giveaway back in December. In the giveaway, she won a bunch of Makeup Revolution palettes and one of them was a blush palette. She said before that she was struggling to find a way to use it so she requested this tutorial! In a way. I’m going to be doing a full face (minus foundation) with this palette and explaining along the way how to apply the different shades.
So, let’s get into it!
- Apply your base as you normally would. I’m using the Urban Decay Optical Illusion primer* all over after moisturising with the Nivea Moisturiser*. I then used a mixture of the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation* and the L’Oreal True Match foundation*. The primer is so good that I don’t need to powder but if that’s what you want to do then go right ahead. (Keep a look out for a review of the primer in the next few days!)
2. The shade in the top right hand corner is actually perfect for my brows so I filled in my brows with that and a PS Beauty eyebrow brush. You guys feel free to use whatever you want to fill in your brows. I went for more of a soft look because I wanted to focus more on the blush and the highlight.
3. If you guys use an eyeshadow primer then go ahead and prime your lids. I’m not fussed so I’m not going to. First of all, I took the really pearly shade in the top left hand corner and applied it all over my lids with my No.7 eyeshadow brush. I then took the really gold colour on my finger and ran it all over the lid. This can produce quite a lot of fallout so lean forward to keep it from sticking to your base. Apply a big ol’ winged liner because this will contrast so nicely with the gold. Put falsies on if you want, I’m just using mascara.
4. Now, onto the really fun part! Take the really pink colour on a blush brush of your choice. I use the Spectrum AO5 because it picks up just enough product but blends it out really nicely. Apply it all over the apples of your cheeks and up towards your temple if you’re into that really blushy look. The key with blush is to build so that you don’t look like a clown. The Spectrum brush is really good for that but if you haven’t got a brush like that or similar then just use a really light hand.
5. Once you’re happy with the blush take the shade I used for my eyebrows and buff it into the hollows of your cheeks. Dependent on your skin tone, it should act like a really nice, subtle contour shade.
6. My absolute favourite part is the highlight – this bottom left shade is by far my favourite highlight of all time. It gives that perfect wet glow look, I love it so much. I always apply this with my fingers on the tops of my cheeks, my brow bone and my nose. Apply to your own discretion and your liking.
So, there you have it! A super glowy look. This would look lovely in winter but also if you switched up the colours on the eyes, it would be the perfect dewy look for summer. I hope you guys like it – let me know if there’s any other looks in particular you would like me to do!
