The beauty world still has a passionate obsession with the many diverse makeup techniques that sculpt, chisel and shape the face. Forget about shaping techniques such as contouring, baking and strobing for a minute. It’s time to try a technique called Draping. This technique looks really pretty, and defines your features in a fun way because it uses blush to shape your face instead of bronzers or contour powders.
Draping is when you contour your face, using strategically placed blush, to exaggerate your cheekbones. Draping creates a much softer look using blush compared to the sharper chiseled effect that is achieved using the classic contouring brown shades.
Draping uses two different blushes to create a contour-like effect.One blush is dark and the other is lighter and brighter.
I think this look is a beautiful, natural look. it is much more natural looking than the classic contouring technique that use brown shades.
Use a darker shade of blush on the hollows of your cheeks.
Next, use a fun, bright, lighter blush shade on the apples of your cheeks. Blend it all the way to your temples. It is such a pretty look.
The real secret to Draping is to use the darker shade of blush to sculpt your face. Put the darker shade below the apples of your cheeks. Then apply the lighter shade on and above the apples of your cheeks.
The secret to perfect draping is how well you blend the blushers after they have been applied.
Blend the fun, bright, lighter shade on the apples of your cheeks and blend it all the way to your temples to define your features. You can also apply this lighter shade on your forehead, chin and jawline. Just be sure to blend it well.
Try Draping with two blush shades (one lighter and one darker) . It will give you a beautiful, soft and more natural look. I think you will like it. Let us know what you think about draping in the comments below.
You Are Awesome!
