There are so many ways to work a flush, and Kisses Delavin, an avid fan of rosy cheeks, just showed us another adorable example:
According to makeup artist Mark Qua, this was his take on a Japanese makeup technique called byojaku. And while it's originally meant to make one appear sickly, he kept it youthful by not putting too much blush under the eyes. Instead, he focused the color on Kisses' temples, a trick which totally reminds us of blush draping.
Mark started by applying a cream blush on the outer corners of Kisses' eyes, blending it outwards to the area above her cheekbones. He then applied extra flush on the lower lashline to unify the colors on the eye area.

Next, Mark layered it with a luminous powder blush on top, brushing it towards the temples to intensify the pink and create a soft gradient.
