The Yellow Blush Trend That’s Taking Over Instagram

yellowblush From the crazy brow trends on Instagram (we’re talking about feathered and barbed wire brows) to the unicorn-inspired lip glosses, it’s no surprise to see another beauty trend in town, but this time it’s for the cheeks. Blushes have always looked the same–it’s only either bronzed or rosy. But Rihanna’s ultra-flushed cheeks at the Met gala was a bold sign that blushes deserves a much-needed upgrade too. True enough, Instagram makeup artists and beauty gurus have been experimenting with this beauty staple and even unexpectedly made use of summer’s bright hue: yellow.

We thought it was crazy too, but think of this hue as something close to your golden-peachy blushes or a brighter version of your bronzer. 
The trick is to do a “Draping” effect, where you apply the blush on your natural bone structures–such as your cheekbones–to drape or transform the shape of your face. It creates a sunny-flushed look that’s a mix of looking bold and pretty.
