Move Over, Rosy Cheeks – Orange Blush Is Here To Slay

Blush is such a staple in the makeup world. It adds colour to your cheeks and brings out the warmth in your eyes.

Anyway, rosy cheeks are pretty basic, but how about changing up your look for a different colour? Like orange blush.

A sheer touch of tangerine around your cheeks may sound gaudy at first, but consider this: orange is just a few shades warmer than peach, which is a pretty common blush colour. It’ll probably work out quite easily for you if you’re a beauty enthusiast.

The best way to apply orange blush

Just sweep it across your cheeks and perhaps, your nose as usual. If you’re fairly dramatic, you might like to try a blush technique we call ‘draping.’ Set your blushed cheeks with setting powder and setting spray. If the colour looks too intense, you can tone it down with translucent powder.

For most orange blush looks, we’d recommend ombre lips done with a lip tint and warm shades around your eyes. Orange blush was at the height of last year’s Pinterest Global Beauty Report, with searches going up to 250%. The trend has been part of the Japanese beauty community for quite some time now.

Orange blush tends to stand out more than red or pink, yet it manages to give the wearer a sunkissed, warm glow. Here are our best recommendations for you to begin your orange blush journey.
