If you're serious about your blusher you need more than one colour for a dimensional flush

If you want to blossom into fresh-face beauty, not unlike your favourite K-drama starlet you'll need a good blusher. We're talking about something that is natural and sheer on the skin, yet long-lasting enough to stay in place as the centrepiece of your look. Laneige is always at the forefront of K-Beauty trends and now with the Ideal Blush Duo, they've elevated the blusher to the next level. Designed to be layered and blended for a natural, contouring and highlighting effect, you won't see your typical blush duos among the offerings.
Laneige Ideal Blush Duo in Peach Mint and California Coral, $39
The six variations have been specially curated by the brand's makeup artists for the best combination. Some shades act as cheek colours, others as colour correctors and some as highlighters. The combinations we're most keen to try include Peach Mint, which has an interesting mix of a coral cheek colour and a mint shade designed to be blended in for a blurring effect, as well as California Coral for that quintessential sun-bronzed glow. This duo contains a coral orange cheek colour and gold highlighter. Another interesting duo is Woodblossom which contains subtle, wearable contouring shades. Our advice? Play with these Ideal Blush Duos to attain different effects and achieve next level greatness with your blusher.


$39. Available at Laneige stores and counters from 17 August
