It’s official, 2017 is the year of reviving the crazy 80s! Think poofy hair, bright blush and frosty blue eyeshadow!

One of the key trends making a major comeback is the daringly colourful bold blush! Also known as “blush draping”, this look is finished with the blush blending from cheek to temple (or in some cases all the way to the eyelids).

Bold blush is spreading like wildfire from Chanel, Kenzo and Adam Selman parading this look on the Spring 2017 runway, to celebrities showing off cheekbone-centric look on the red carpet ala Kristen Stewart.
