TikTok makeup hacks are questionable, but once in a while we find a gem. This one will make you jump all around your room (or in your head) because it works. This viral blush hack is blowing up on reels and TikTok for all the right reasons. We think it can win its way into your makeup routine!
Remember the whole phase when everyone hated blush? Yeah, those days are long gone. 1980s draping and blush on the tip of your nose are cool rn. Blush has made a huge comeback. We are so thrilled to see flushed faces everywhere. Give it to usss.
Simon says, use the palm of your hands to apply blush. Or what Australian makeup artist, Mia Hawkswell says. She swears by this blush technique that she calls “bouncing”. You can apply blush in seconds using this viral hack. We know it is a struggle to find the right placement for blush. The wrong placement can drag your face down. Nope. Not happening. This new mistake-proof hack is everything you need!
Apply a cream or liquid blush on the palm of your hands and rub them together (to warm it up). Now place your palms on your cheeks and ‘stamp’ the blush. Pat, pat! It gives you that sculpted and lifted look in seconds. Plus, cream blushes are so fresh and easy to blend!
The classic apple of the cheek placement doesn’t work for everyone. Sure, it gives an innocent and rounded look, but some of us want to look snatched. This is the hack for us.
Hawkswell mentioned “the heel of our hand mimics our cheeks so use them to stamp”. Super cool, right? Who knew blush could be so easy! Life-changing and straight from the TikTok gods.
