We bet you’ve never used it like this…

When it comes to blush, we won’t lie to you, we thought we had the whole ‘fresh and flushed’ look down pat.

But it turns out we’ve only just scratched the surface of blush application techniques. 

There’s a viral blush TikTok hack that’s been making the rounds and our ears have officially pricked up in interest… 

The under eye technique

According to TikTok creator Painted By Spencer, “if you’re not blending your blush up to your under eye area, you’re missing out – just saying.”

So grab your favourite liquid and cream blush formulas because we’re upping the ante when it comes to our blush game. 

All in all, this hack is actually extremely simple to DIY at home. 

Simply dab a small amount of liquid or cream blush in the hollow inner corner of your under eye, layer with your regular concealer shade, and blend. 

Now, pop your blush on the apples of your cheeks and allow the product to melt into the blush and concealer cocktail that’s sitting under your eyes.

The result? Juicy, plump cheeks with a believable and natural ombré of colour. 

Plus, based on the universal law of colour correcting (to which we are all bound), the purplish hue of your dark circles won’t stand a chance against any red and pink tones present in your blush. Sleepness nights? Don’t know her. 

Keen to see the results for yourself? Check out the attempts of these content creators…

Now that you’ve sussed out TikTok’s viral blush technique, you should probably try the app's baby face contouring hack.
