The draping technique is far from new: everyone did it all in the 70s and 80s. Dripping is a mix of contouring, strobing and the classic blush application, with the help of which a visual lifting is created, and the face looks younger and tighter (regardless of age).
The popularity of draping does not depend on age
And from skin color too
The draping makeup looks beautiful and fresh. This is especially true in spring, when the sun begins to appear more actively, but it is still far from full natural tanning. We remember the models of the 80s ─ how beautiful, young and energetic they looked. Did you miss such a "cheerful" beauty? Then let's remember how the draping is done.
Soft fluffy brushes of different sizes are best for dripping techniques for applying dry blush. Rule: apply dry blush on an already powdered tone or just powder (if you do not use a foundation), and cream - directly on the skin or tone without powder. In the latter case, you can use a sponge, but better with your own fingers.
Solo in a dripping blush. For a full-fledged make-up, you will need several shades (warm and cold), a highlighter and brushes. In this case, a warm shade of blush must be lighter than a cold one! Blush can be either creamy or classic dry depending on preferences (but the rule of "normal and dry skin cream and liquid textures, prone to oily - compact" is still better to consider).

First of all, we deal with the tone - we do everything as usual (we apply the usual care, if desired - the base, we tint). Then we take blush: first - colder and darker shades. Apply the selected shade under the cheekbone cavity and blend well along the entire cheekbone - we get the same effect of the 70-80s style. Apply a warm and light shade to the apples of the cheeks and shade them into the “zone” of a dark shade. Then on the brush we type two shades at once - both warm and cold - and draw with a brush along the entire cheekbone.
Now it's the turn of the highlighter: we apply it to the highest part of the cheekbone, as if "connecting" with blush. The final touch: apply light and warm blush to the temporal cavities, creating a subtle contouring and a visual lifting effect.
Even professionals admit them, but if it is forgivable for them (creativity is creativity - especially on the podium), then we are not. Do not apply blush on the back and tip of the nose, earlobes, side surfaces of the neck - in general, do everything that we usually do with a bronzer (remember - "The sun in the hands: how to use bronzer correctly"). In ordinary life, this will look at least unusual, and it is better to leave experiments to make-up artists for shows and glossy shoots.
Vladimir Kalinichev, the official makeup artist of Max Factor in Russia: “Beauty is not just a pleasant appearance, but individuality and charm. Max Factor has developed a new communication “You are the X Max Factor”, which involves a dialogue with the client and the customer. Immersing ourselves in the lives of real modern women, we are inspired by their example to create new products so that they are 100% responsive and help to become more beautiful day after day."
