Enhance your fresh-faced beauty with a soft veil of radiant colours with the LANEIGE Ideal Blush Duo collection: Review, Swatches & Makeup Looks

When it comes to beauty, the Koreans always strike first. If you think applying blush is easy, think again. The Koreans have now reinvented the steps to achieving the perfect flush with the Blush Layering trend – basically working on a combination of sheer colours to achieve natural blush, contouring and highlighting effects.

And yes, if you’ve been following social media, you’ll definitely not be a stranger to the LANEIGE Ideal Blush Duo collection that’s all over your feed. The collection, with natural and luminous hues, is designed perfectly for the Blush Layering trend, with two colours in each of the six unique palettes.

I quite like the shade selection in each palette, because each palette is carefully designed for you to achieve a certain look, whether it be a pure and innocent one, a sun-kissed glowy one or even a well-contoured one. The combination of two ideal colours into one palette, coupled with the blendability of the formula, lets you conveniently create a complexion you desire in the shortest amount of time.

The (Instagram) world’s going crazy over marble prints now, so kudos to Hourglass for having marble prints on the palette’s packaging. Beauty junkies all over the world should be thanking the brand now for such an Insta-worthy piece 😉 Not that I’m a huge fan of marble prints, I absolutely adore this as compared to their usual metallic ones because I don’t have my fingerprints seen all over the casing.
