Feels Like Summer FOTD feat. Japanese Blush Fail

The other day, I read an article on Refinery29 about a Japanese blush style that sounded like it might work for me. The method involves placing the blush quite high up on the cheeks and blending it out horizontally rather than at the angle of the cheekbones. It creates a more youthful, soft, and round-cheeked appearance rather than the sculpted look of traditional Western-style angled blush. I really wanted to try it, so I did (in conjunction with an attempt at the Wayne Goss “clean beauty” thing. I don’t think I put on enough. I’m scared of overdoing blush.

Where did my blush go?

I’ll try putting more on next time.

FOTD featuring undereye blush attempt
By the way. It is SO SUNNY AND WARM here right now. Feels great.

I do really want to master the Japanese undereye blush look. I love the softness of it. I think I was just too nervous about overdoing it today because the Holika Holika blush I used does get very vivid very quickly. I’ve got the Milani baked blush in Luminoso headed my way–that might work better.

Bonus duckface.

We are very much not gangsta.

Have you tried any new looks lately? How did they work out?
