Sunset Blush Trend Tutorial

Now, let's delve into the step-by-step process of creating your own sunset blush masterpiece:

1. Apply dots of blush

Begin by applying two dots of the hot pink liquid blush on the high points of your cheekbones, slightly above the outer corner of your eyes. Position these dots diagonally. Next, add two dots of the orange or coral blush below the pink blush.

2. Illuminate with gold shimmer

Place two dots of the gold liquid highlighter above the pink and orange blush shades to add a luminous touch reminiscent of the sun's golden glow.

3. Blend seamlessly

Using gentle blending motions, merge the colors together starting from the pink shade, transitioning to the orange hue, and finally incorporating the shimmering gold. The key is to blend slowly and seamlessly to achieve that gradient sunset effect.

Once blended to perfection, behold the magical transformation as your cheeks radiate with a dewy, shimmering sunset glow.

Whether it's a casual outing or a special evening affair, embrace the beauty of nature's palette with the TikTok-inspired sunset blush trend, and let your inner glow shine bright.
