Beauty Alert

Classic contouring is yesterday’s news, now it’s time for the latest make up trend: Draping

After Contouring and Strobing, a new beauty trend

from the 80s is conquering the catwalks: Draping!

While darker and flashier red shades were used in the 80’s, the modern version focuses on a more fresh and natural look.

In a similar way to contouring, Draping uses two different blush shades to sculpt the face and add freshness and expression. First, a darker blush shade is applied below the cheekbones and along the temples up towards the hairline to act as a contour. Next, a lighter shade is used to emphasise the cheekbones, the area above the eyes and the bridge of the nose. To create a special glow, the highest point of the forehead can also be highlighted using the lighter shade. Simply blend any sharp transitions with a brush to keep the look natural.
