One Japanese makeup trick that’s catching up recently is the “drunk blush technique.” This trick basically gives you that natural flush when you have a few drinks. This is also part of their hangover makeup looks which include reddish under eyes and greased-up hair.
This technique is done on the area of the under eye and the cheekbones. You can either use a cheek tint or blush on its own, or combine them depending on how intense you want it. In the past, we noticed how celebrities like Sarah Lahbati and Ellen Adarna have been loving the natural pink flush effect. This is a more subtle version of a drunk blush.
For a more reddish hue, Kryz Uy recently posted a tutorial on it.
