The newest trend this season. Draping.
And no, it has nothing to do with curtains! Basically, instead of using your normal contour shade you contour with a blush.
Obviously this is only meant for the cheekbones, blush contouring your nose could look a bit Rudolf The Red-Nosed Reindeer but each to there own dear.

How to - 

You start with the darkest blush of your choice in the hollow of your cheekbone, then fade up the cheekbone into a lighter blush. Finish off with popping a bit of highlight on your cheekbone and Bob's your Uncle.


Foundation - Dior skin in Nude
Concealer - MAC Studio Finish
Blush - Illamasqua Seduce and Ravish
Highlight - MAC's Soft and Gentle

Makeup Draping

Eyeshadow - MAC's Mystery smudged along waterline
Mascara - Clinique Long Lash
Eyebrows - MAC Copperplate eyeshadow 

Lips - Illamasqua Ravish Blusher

  4. Oh I've not heard of this before but it looks stunning! I would never have thought to do this but totally trying it out tomorrow. This technique really suits you lovely. Xxxx


  5. Draping! I haven't heard of this but I like the idea and the outcome on you is lovely, the pop of colour on your cheeks suits you so nicely.

    When it comes to blush I tend to use more than one, often hard to get the perfect colour so like to mix up blush with a deeper and a lighter colour.

    You look beautiful :)

  6. Such a gorgeous makeup look, have read a bit about draping but haven't tried it yet! Afraid that it'll become messy, but this looks so so lovely! Xx


  7. I've never been able to contour because I was never able to get a shade light enough to not look awful on my skintone so this is definitely something I need to try!
