Sunset Blush makeup Looks

I’m so excited to share some of my favorite examples of the sunset blush trend below to inspire you! Also, the best part is that it’s not just one look. You can play around with different shades that suit your individual skin tone and make you glow. Whether it’s using a hot pink with a bright coral or a subtle baby pink paired with a soft peach. This trend is totally customizable, so you can create a sunset blush look that’s uniquely yours.

How to Achieve Sunset Blush

To achieve the perfect sunset blush look, it’s best if all your products are the same consistency so they blend together smoothly. For example, liquid blush and highlighter work really well for this, and I’ve listed some of my favorites below!

1. Apply Pink Blush

Apply pink blush to the highest part of your cheekbones. You can just do a couple of dots.

2. Apply Orange or Coral Blush

Apply the orange or coral blush right below the pink, following the line of your cheekbones.

3. Add Liquid Highlighter

Add a liquid highlighter above the blushes, near the corner of your eye.

4. Blend

Use a fluffy brush to blend one shade at a time, making sure to create a smooth flow for that perfect sunset look.
