The “Draping” Technique 

The “Draping” makeup technique is basically skipping out on bronzer and your typica contour shades and using a blush to contour with instead. This is a very 80’s inspired look, but I love it because it gives the skin a natural flushed and sun-kissed appearance for any skin type and tone.


The key to achieving this look the RIGHT way without making your skin look too red or sunburned is by using a neutral matte blush shade. My favorite one to use is the Makeup Revolution matte blush in the shade Nude (you can find this at Ulta for $5, the matte blushes are amazing!).

For me personally, draping looks so pretty in the summer and I feel like it would also be a great makeup technique for the winter months as well to add some more warmth and life to the skin.

I hope this post was helpful! Definitely give this technique a try!

    Honestly, I’ve never thought of doing this. Normally I have a bronzer problem, where I’m a little heavy handed. It’s not the end of the world, because I just blend it all out and usually am pretty tan, but this is my first year not living at the beach and I’m very pale for this time of the year, so I’m going to have to make sure I put this look on my to try list!
