Ananya Panday always looks so glowy and selfie-ready and I know her secret. Yes, she’s a minimalist even when she is wearing a full face of makeup. But on days that she isn’t shooting or attending an event, Ananya uses only one single makeup item to get her glow on–blush.
And she doesn’t use it in a traditional manner. Ananya loves this glow-boosting makeup item and so she applies it on areas other than the apples of her cheeks. Here’s everything you need to know.
How Does Ananya Panday Apply Blush?
In an interview, Ananya revealed that blush is her go-to makeup product and she uses it liberally off-screen. She said, “I’m obsessed with blush. I use it on my cheeks, nose, chin, and forehead. I just love that pink-flushed look.”
The way Ananya applies blush all over her face lends her that naturally flushed look that looks amazing in selfies. From what I’ve noticed, the blush she uses is kind of dewy and sheer therefore it blends so beautifully and looks so natural.
My favourite sheer and glowy blush is the Etude Dear Darling Water Gel Lip & Cheek Tint 5 G – PK004.
Benefits Of Ananya Panday’s Blush Hack
Ananya Panday’s blush hack not only gives her a naturally flushed look but also helps sculpt the face. The forehead, cheeks and chin are areas where bronzer is usually applied. Using blush instead of bronzer in these areas is perfect for when you aren’t wearing a full face of makeup but still want a soft glow.
I’ve tried using this hack as well and it’s the bomb. Since I still wanted a more sun-kissed effect, I chose a peach-toned blush like the MyGlamm Tint Up – Frolic to test out this hack and the results were phenomenal.
How To Apply Blush Like Ananya Panday
Step 1: Begin by cleansing, toning, and moisturising your skin and then follow up with a tinted sunscreen to get a no-makeup makeup effect.
My personal favourite tinted sunscreen is the POPxo Selfie-Ready Tinted Sunscreen.
Step 2: Pick up your favourite cream or liquid blush and dot it on your cheeks, chin, and forehead, and a little bit on the tip of your nose as well. Now, blend with your fingers to sheer out the pigment and you’re selfie-ready in seconds.
Since it’s a natural glow that I’m after, I like using a skincare-infused blush like the Forest Trove Lip & Cheek Dew Serum ( Pomegranate & Beetroot ).
It’s no wonder Ananya Panday always looks amazing in selfies. This blush hack of hers is really the best trick to add to your routine.
