When you don't have enough time to play up your eyes, experiment with your blush instead. We swear, applying it in a slightly different way or choosing a different shade can change your entire look! The fact that it'll take you half the time it would take to create a cat eye is just a bonus. And remember when we asked the guests for the Preview 25 House Party to come in their party-at-home glam? Well, it was obvious that blush was everyone's go-to for a polished virtual gathering look, too!
If you need ideas to upgrade your blush looks, we rounded up stunning makeup selfies by the Preview Clique girls to serve you some inspo. FYI, they're all wearing shades from EB Advance's Bloom Blush line!
1. Sunkissed (@miafranzgelicka)
Missing the beach? Cop a sunkissed look with your blush in the meantime. Like our girl Mia, you can apply an orangey brown color like the Bloom Blush in Dahlia (P175, Lazada)on both cheeks, sweeping the extra on your brush across your nose to mimic how the sun would hit your skin.
2. Pinched and rosy (@tetatomato)
Instead of blending your blush upwards, try focusing the hue slightly below the apples of your cheeks to create a realistic flush—the kind you get after going on a run. Here's some inspo from Teta, who used the Bloom Blushes in Fig and Peony (P175 each, Shopee) for this pretty rosy look!
3. Draped (@ysmnaaaa)
Draped blush may be more of an '80s thing, but with a few tweaks, we can definitely still pull it off today. This monochrome look on Yasmeen, for example, was done by layering two neutral pink shades (Fig and Rose) for dimension. She applied on the outer part of her cheeks first, and then blended it towards the temples. She used the same colors on her eyes, too!
4. Summer Flush (@jannymrnda)
If you love a bold flush, this summer flush look by Janny would be right up your alley. All you need is a warm pink shade that suits your skin tone and swipe it horizontally from cheek to cheek. Janny used the Bloom Blush in Rose (P175, Lazada). For a little something extra, you can add some faux freckles like Janny did here! (Click here ho
5. Subtle Sculpt (@dan.soliman)
If you want your blush to double as a contour, the key is choosing a shade with a brownish hue like the Bloom Blush in Dahlia (P175, Shopee). You don't need to change your usual blush application—just focus it on the apples of your cheeks and blend outwards as usual! One thing you should remember though is the color should stop above the hollow of your cheeks (where you'd usually put contour) to really mimic that sculpted look. Check out this makeup look on Dan for a proper visual!
