Blushadow: The Hot New Way to Apply Your Blush in 2019

This trend is ready for take-off

We love blush – it’s a face-beat must-have. We ALSO love eyeshadow cause what would any makeup look be without it? This latest beauty trend is a fun combination of both, and the name is just as fun as the concept: blushadow. See what they did there?

Blushadow was inspired, like many things, by the K-Beauty movement, and it has made its way across the pond and onto the faces of runway models and A-list stars. And while the name might seem like a mouthful, it’s not hard to recreate as it simply requires extending your blush upward onto the temples and next to the eyes.

Much like contouring, this technique can add structure to the face but is a lot easier to master (in other words, you won’t have to watch a whole lot of YouTube tutorials to nail it!). Here are five product picks to help you get the look.

1 Clinique Blushing Blush Powder Blush – Aglow

Fair-skinned ladies will look perfectly peachy when wearing this soft, apricot-pink powder blush from Clinique. Subtle but still chic.

2 Smashbox Blendable Lip & Cheek Colour – Beverley Hills

A creamy formula that is easy to blend – this chubby stick can be used on lips and cheeks so you can coordinate your colour scheme.

3 L’Oréal Paris Makeup Designer True Match Blush – Golden Amber

Blush doesn’t always have to be pink. This neutral shade suits all skin undertones and creates that sought-after lit-from-within glow.

4 Maybelline Face Studio Blush – Dare To Pink

We do, however, love a pink blush and this budget buy from Maybelline is the perfect shade of pretty and ideal for a blushadow look.

5 Stila Convertible Colour Dual Lip & Cheek Palette

If you like having options and you prefer your blush formula to be of the creamy variety, then this palette has your name all over it.
