Sometimes referred to as draping (the act of artfully placing blusher by following the natural ‘drape’ of the face), contouring using blusher has been around since the 70s when make-up artist Way Bandy brought it into the spotlight, by using it on famous clients such as Farrah Fawcett.

An antidote to the trend of the last few years for intense contouring using bronzer and highlighter, contouring with blusher has been brought firmly back into the spotlight more recently by supermodels Gigi Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski. It’s perfect if you’re looking for a softer approach to the traditional contouring colours and techniques.

Make-up artist Katy Jane recommends using two shades of blush to add depth, for a really wearable look that enhances cheekbones, and gives a healthy flush of colour.
