Introducing Draping: Is This the New Contouring?
It’s probably time to switch up your makeup routine.
While contouring has reigned over makeup trends for quite a while now, a new face-sculpting technique known as draping has recently been introduced by various beauty brands, including Marc Jacobs Beauty. “It’s the new way to blush,” Marc Jacobs Beauty’s global makeup artist Gilbert Soliz tells Marie Claire about draping. “You’re essentially changing the shape of the face with color, using it to drape the contours of your face to achieve what you desire, whether it’s lift, sculpt, volume, or balance,” explains Soliz.
For those who are interested in testing out the draping method, here is a step-by-step breakdown on how to highlight your natural bone structure by using only blush:
1. Apply the deeper shade of blush just below the apples of the cheeks.
2. Blend along the length of the cheekbone, jawline, and side of the neck.
3. Use a lighter shade on top and blend both colors together.
