There are a ton of creative beauty hacks out there on TikTok. A few months back, beauty babes started applying lip glosses, lipsticks and more to their cheeks in lieu of traditional powder blushes. The results? Glowing, shimmering cheeks in just seconds, like a gorgeous sheer cheek tint.
So, what’s the tea on using lip products as an alternative to blush? Lip gloss cheeks, as many put it, is a quick makeup trend that results in a dewy complexion. Those who have tried the trend shared on social media that they blend the product with their fingers, while others opt for a brush or makeup sponge. Some set the lip gloss with a powder blush so it doesn’t budge or feel sticky. Others have used lipsticks to create a rich-looking, creamy DIY blush (does anyone else recall watching their grandma do this with their red lipstick?)
As it would seem, you can use all sorts of lip products as a DIY blush depending on the look you’re shooting for. All in all, the versatile makeup trend results in a glowing complexion that is particularly perfect to bring back for the summer.
