Blushing Beauty: Re-creating the 3-D Blushing Effect with TEMPTU

October 21, 2010  |  Inspiration, Tips & Technique

This time of year the changing weather can have a tendency to put you in a down-in-the-dumps kind of mood. It’s growing colder, and the leaves are beginning to fall, leaving the trees looking a bit bare. Winter is swiftly approaching, and the thought of snow on the ground can make you feel a little, well…flat. What better way to brighten up and combat your weather blues than with a new 3-D cheek look that is reminiscent of the glory days of summer?

Yearning for those vibrant, juicy colors of summer, we decided to mix things up in the TEMPTU studio the other day by playing with a blush/highlighter combination, which really kept us reminiscing about our favorite hot looks of summer. The effect? A three dimensional blush and highlighter look that had us reconsidering our simplistic fall makeup! Take a look at this eye-catching 3-D look, especially these gorgeous cheeks!

What do you think? Isn’t this blush and highlighter combo a great way to chase your fall/winter blues away? If you are as much of a fan of this look as we are, you can create this 3-D luminosity by following these four easy steps:

1. First, create a flawless base using TEMPTU’s Undereye Concealer and AIR pod Foundation.

2. Add some color by airbrushing the apples of your cheeks using our AIR pod Blush in Soft Peach.

3. Next, using TEMPTU AIR pod Highlighter in Gold, trace a large “3” starting at the temples, down to the cheekbone, and down to the jaw line.

4. Finish off your look with a layer of clear lip gloss, like Bobbi Brown’s Crystal Lip Gloss.

Viola! Don’t you feel livelier already? We want to hear what you think of this look, so please share your comments below. Oh, and have a happy summer, err, fall day!
