What do you think? Have I just run a marathon or tried to use the draping technique?
I’m telling you guys, I’ve always thought so, but now I’m sure of it: I have psychic powers.
Do you remember that a couple of weeks ago I talked about about the comeback of colored mascara?
And do you remember how I started that post?
No? Well, allow me to remind you:
So, what do you think of blue mascara?
Does it trigger memories of mullets and unblended fuchsia blush you’ve been trying to suppress for the past 26 years?
If so, I’m sorry. You may leave now, I understand.
Well, despite (or maybe because of??) me mocking it, unblended bold blush going all the way up to the temples is back. *insert emoji of your choice. I’ll go with Munch’s The Scream, but feel free to opt for heart eyes*
Or at least, it’s supposed to come back, according to Mr. Marc Jacobs.
Yep! I read on marieclaire.com that, apparently, using color to drape the contours of your face and change its shape is the new way to blush. So basically this fall we’re going to contour using blush – or at least that’s what the Marc Jacobs Beauty marketing team wants us to do with their brand new Air Blush Soft Glow Duos.
With their intense pigmentation, I think the MADINA Milano Prisma Blushes in 03 (coral) and 05 (fuchsia) would be perfect for the ‘new’ draping technique
Marc Jacobs new blushes definitely look pretty, but if I ever get one, I’m pretty sure I’m not going to use it the intended way. As you probably know by now if you’ve been following this blog, I love me some crazy colors on the lips, I like bright eyeshadows, and I’m OK with colored mascara, but when it comes to base I like things to look pretty natural and simple. And this 70’s/80’s revival is all but natural-looking.
So yeah, mama’s gonna pass on this one! (If I accidentally bump my head against the wall extremely hard, lose even the last remnants of my sanity, and start draping my face in fuchsia blush, you can totally hold this against me.)
What do you think? Are you gonna give this ‘new’ draping thing a try? And do you think mullets are coming back also??
