This Is the Newest Way to Wear Blush, According to Dior
Blush is more or less an overlooked product in our makeup bag. Sure, it’s part of the everyday routine, but the possibilities for experimentation are fairly limited (apply to apples of cheeks and go). Or so we thought. The models at the Dior Cruise 2018 fashion show in Calabasas, California, wore the cheek color in an entirely new and oh-so flattering way.
While the ladies walked the rugged runway (the collection was shown in the Upper Las Virgenes Canyon), they sported blush below the apples of the cheeks. This new placement might not seem like a big change, but it makes a pretty noticeable difference to the overall look.
Creative and Image Director of Christian Dior Makeup Peter Philips explains in the above video that he turned to lipstick — specifically Rouge Dior in Ready ($35), according to Elle — instead of actual blush to achieve the “sunkissed skin,” he was aiming for. You can see that he blends out the pigment in a downward motion, which is key to bringing attention to the lower portion of the apple of the cheek.
While we love looking at high fashion beauty trends for fun, they’re not always translatable to sport IRL — but Dior’s modern take on blush is one that’s truly wearable and doable. Next time you want to subtly experiment with your makeup, take that cheek color a tad lower and see if you’re feelin’ it. It’s a simple, statement-making way to mix up your daily makeup routine and have some fun with a new summer look.
