A bright spring trend that is worth trying now.
If a year and a half ago, when Hailey Bieber first introduced the world to the idea of glazed skin, we were told that it would grow into a trend of this magnitude, we would never have believed it.
Now everyone knows what glazed nails, lips, hair and even eyes are, but not everyone will remember that initially it was just an advertising campaign for the Rhode brand that was just launching at that time.
At the end of 2023, it seemed to us that the obsession with everything glazed had subsided somewhat (even new makeup ideas appeared in Hailey Bieber’s arsenal), but that was not the case – the main hit of 2024 promises to be glazed blush.
I tell you everything you need to know about the hottest beauty trend of the season.
This is perhaps the first time that the creation of another glazed trend took place without the direct participation of Hailey Bieber.
The trend, of course, originated on TikTok: users of the social network came up with certain combinations of products that allow you to achieve a bright and very radiant blush, and immediately called the makeup glazed due to the already established association of glowing skin with sugar icing on a donut.
So, how do you turn the regular blush in your makeup bag into a glazed one? Everything is simpler than it might seem at first glance.
Start by thoroughly moisturizing your skin: the absence of noticeable flaking and a healthy glow are the main conditions for creating any glazed makeup. Skip the heavy matte tone in favor of a light, water-based product, and spot-conceal visible imperfections, if any, with concealer.
Now take the blush (it should be cream or liquid to achieve the desired effect) and apply it to your face, adjusting the intensity of the color to your liking. For a more natural effect, use the product on the apples of your cheeks and the tip of your nose, or for a lifting effect, blend the product upward towards your temple.
Now arm yourself with a highlighter: a product with a dewy glow without large glitter is ideal and apply it over the blush. Some TikTok users suggest using a thick moisturizing serum instead of highlighter – it also provides the effect of glowing, “glazed” skin.
But this life hack is only suitable for a quick photo: after 10-15 minutes, the serum will be completely absorbed and only blush will remain on the face.
