Neon blush seems to be everywhere these days — from the cool, yellow-hued Instagram blogger kind, to the editorial, draped, red-carpet look. To celebrate this electric trend, we recreate the look using just one (that’s right, one!) product. Here’s what we came up with.
How to Master the Neon Blush Trend You’re Seeing All Over Instagram
STEP 1: Pick Your Neon Blush Product(s)
The trick to mastering the neon blush look depends to what type of blush product you use (i.e cream, stick, powder), and more on the product that will give you the best neon shade. It can be anything, as long as it’s bright.
STEP 2: Foundation Is Key
Before applying your neon blush, you’ll need to make sure you’ve primed and applied your makeup base. Always do your foundation before applying blush so it blends better. This way, your blush product has an even surface to stick to and will last longer.
STEP 3: Apply, Buff, Set
After swiping on your neon blush, use a fluffy blush brush to blend it out onto the cheekbones and upper temple area. This will create a softer, more diffused, draped look. After you’ve buffed it out, it’s time to set your newly bright and flushed cheeks. You can add a bit of powder if you want it to be more long-lasting, and of course a setting spray.
