To begin with, Charlotte Tilbury just released ten more pillow talk products.
One of the ten was a deeper shade of the pillow talk Cheek to Cheek Blush. First, there was only one blush in the original pillow talk shade. Unfortunately, it was way to light for me. So, I was thrilled to hear that it was too light for others.
Therefore, I purchased the new deeper shade of Cheek to Cheek Blush in Pillow Talk Intense ($40).
Above all, I read how Charlotte wanted us to apply her blushes. Hence, Charlotte described the draping method of applying blush.
The Concept of Draping
I know, you and I must be thinking the same thing. That is, Draping has to do with manipulating fabrics to create amazing fashions. However, Draping has another meaning when it comes to makeup. In the world of makeup and beauty, draping is a technique for applying blush.
Instead of using contour powders and creams, draping is when you use blush to chisel your cheekbones. Furthermore, do you apply your blush, on the apples of your cheeks? Most of us were taught to apply our blush on the apples of our cheeks. In this way, we were creating a flushed makeup look. Although, Draping is the opposite of everything we were taught to blush to flush.
How The Draping Your Blush Technique Works
First of all, it blushing the apples of your cheeks isn’t the wrong way to blush! Instead, creating a flush is just one way of applying blush. Moreover, Draping is another technique used to apply blush. It involves brushing your blush from your temples down, toward the apples of your cheeks.
Furthermore, you do this in a C-shaped formation. When you start at the temples, you make sure that too much color doesn’t end up concentrated in the fullest part of your cheeks. In this way, it gets everything dispersed, and follows your natural bone structure.
And Last But Not Least………
The end result is a lifting effect that gives the illusion of higher, sharper cheekbones.
