C-Sculpt Blush For Beginners

February 26, 2024

For years it was all about applying makeup to add a fun pop of colour and artistic beauty to our looks, but today, it’s all about sculpting. Like its name implies, sculpting or contouring means using makeup to naturally accentuate the curves of your face without creating any harsh, obvious lines. Coverup sticks, liquid, and powder, as well as blush, can all be used along the cheek bones up to the temples to create a flattering, dramatic, sweeping look. Here are some great products to experiment with to make your gorgeous face look like a true work of art. —Jennifer Cox

Pure Color EnvySculpting Blush from Estee Lauder ($60) is an ultra-silky, luxurious powder blush for enhanced definition and a healthy-looking glow. It comes with an exclusive contouring brush to work your magic like a pro, and a compact that can be refilled (which is kinder to the enviroment). Sculpt, define, and glow – you’ll get it all from this blush.

For a versatile cheek sculpting compact with shades that blend and build beautifully, there is Clinique’s Sculptionary Cheek Contouring Palette ($55). Use each separately to colour, contour, and highlight, or swirl them together for a quick easy glow. Use the mid-toned shade as a blush, the deep-toned shade to contour, and the lightest shade to highlight. Or, for a quick, easy glow, swirl the brush over the entire palette and dust over the apples of your cheeks.

Liquid blush, like the one from NARS’ ($40), is ideal for contouring because you can do so much with it. This one effortlessly glides on skin for a lasting, natural-looking glow. Its unique formula is buildable and blendable to customize your look: create a subtle rush by using one drop, or achieve maximum colour payoff with a full pump. It also includes Monoï and Tamanu oils, known to promote skin’s overall health.

Gucci’s Blush De Beauté ($67) is the fashion house’s first makeup powder blush. Smooth, playful and multi-use, it can be applied on the cheeks or the eyes. It offers a wide range of looks, from a light flush to a daring look. There are six flattering shades, and you can build up layers for more intensity.

The Coutour Stylus from Victoria Beckham Beauty ($50) is a slim, targeted sculpting stick that takes the guesswork out of contouring. It is a sculpting secret weapon for on-the-go touch-ups, and it can be used on the cheekbones, lips, nose, and jawline. It is designed to have smooth, controlled application with targeted application to make enhancing your natural features blissfully easy.
