This ‘Draping’ makeup trend went hot off the runways and straight onto RiRi’s cheekbones. But what you need to know is the history behind this seemingly new exotic makeup trend. Draping as a technique was first spotted in the 50’s. Blush was applied to the eyes, cheeks and forehead in the shape of a half-moon. It’s almost as if the blush were hugging the contours of your face.
Here’s how you can get the look:
1. Using the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Blush Shimmer Brick (or eyeshadow if you’re feeling wild) to contour. Drag some of that contour upwards to your temple and onto your eyelid. Blend, blend and repeat.
2. Add a lighter shade on your cheekbones and blend this away focusing most of the colour towards the periphery of your face.
3. For a draped luminous glow, dust on some highlighter and blend well.
