Blush has had a major comeback in recent years—people went from being intimidated by it to packing it on to imitate a "drunk" flush! It can be the cherry on top of a gorgeous makeup ~lewk~, and it can also be the only thing you have on your face on lazy days. Wearing one can make your complexion look healthy or possess a ~*sun-kissed*~ glow, sans the beach trip.

Can't wait to look glowing? Below, blush hacks you can try to look "fresh lang" ASAP!

  1. Moisturize your skin.

    Applying blush on dehydrated skin can emphasize dry patches which defeat the purpose of scoring a "fresh lang" look. Load up on a moisturizer with hyaluronic acid in it. ICYDK, this superstar ingredient can hold in water that's 1,000 times its weight!

  2. Choose the right formula for your skin type.

    Blushes come in a variety of formulas and it's important that you choose one that best suits your skin type. If you have a dry complexion, cream tints are your best friend—it will make your face look glowing and dewy! If you have oily skin, a powder type will help keep the grease at bay.


  3. Use a multipurpose product to make your life easier.

    The monochromatic makeup look is one of the biggest beauty trends of 2019, and it's not hard to see why. Working with one product for your eyes, cheeks, and lips instantly makes you look more put-together in no time—people won't know that it's all thanks to a single pan!

  4. Pick a shade that's compatible with your skin tone.

    Using the ~right~ shade of blush can help accentuate your best features. If you have fair skin, good options would be soft pink, light coral, and peach. If you're more on the medium side, your best bets are apricot and mauve. If you have a deeper complexion, choose raisin, berry, and bright orange hues.

  5. Apply it on your nose bridge, too.

    Get the "drunk blush" look without going to an inuman with your barkada. We normally only apply rouge at the apples of our cheeks, but to score this lewk, go ahead and spread some across your nose. The result? A youthful and glowing face!


  6. Set with a translucent setting powder.

    Using a setting powder is a non-negotiable when living in a humid country like ours. Layer it on top of your favorite blush so your makeup look stays fresh even if your skin becomes oily throughout the day.
