Glazed Blush Is Here To Dominate This Year’s Makeup Trends

Lips have been stealing all the attention lately with lip liner and gloss combos taking off, alongside peptide treatments, oils and sheer lip stains. But the pretty “glazed blush” trend – that we’ve noticed taking off across the pages of our favorite makeup artists and TikTok – will shift the attention north to our cheekbones.



We’ve seen glazed skin go viral and glazed nails are a beauty movement in their own right, so it follows that attention has turned to our blush. “I think we will see the texture of blushers get more glossy and balmy, to give a more hydrated appearance,” pro celebrity makeup artist, Diane Buzzetta, predicted in Glamour‘s 2024 makeup trends forecast.

Just as glazed nails took a classic (milky nails), then updated it with an extra glossy top coat; glazed blush takes traditional blush shades (pinks, peaches, berry and coral), but pairs it with an ultra fresh, glowy update that falls somewhere between a blusher and a dewy highlighter.

But it’s not just the finish of our blush that’s getting a glow-up, it’s the impact too, with bolder renditions that look seriously covetable and wearable. Case in point: the ultra flushed glazed blush created by makeup artist, Melissa Hurkman. In the caption, Melissa was kind enough to share that model Alexis Carrnington was wearing the Patrick Ta Major Headlines Double Take Creme and Powder Blush Duo in the shade “She’s Baked”. And, doing the Lord’s work, one user asked “was there anything else used to create that wet glowy dew??? It’s so pretty!!!” to which Melissa responded: “just the cream blush over the powder blush and a TINY. bit of the [Patrick Ta Major Glow All-Over] glow balm.”

How to create glazed blush

The beauty of the trend, though, is that you can dial it up or down, depending on the finish you want. Cream blushers and liquid highlighters are great for this. “Cream blush is perfect for creating a healthy flush and you can easily blend your blush with your fingers or beauty blender,” advises top celebrity makeup artist Ash K Holm. “They still feel like skin and are buildable to a personalized intensity,” agrees pro celebrity makeup artist, Shelby Smith.

How to wear glazed blush

As for where to wear it, we’ll see more of “the doll-like blush on the apple of the cheeks for 2024,” says Ash. Or for a more sculpted finish: “I love placing blush slightly above the apples of the cheeks for a more lifted, glowy effect,” Diane told us.

Which products to use

We’ll definitely be adding the Patrick Ta blush duo used by Melissa (above) to our makeup bags. And Diane told us: “I’ve been using the Chanel Lip and Cheek Balm and Kylie Lip and Cheek Glow Balm on my clients recently and it looks really fresh and youthful.” Likewise, the RMS Lip2Cheek delivers on fresh, glowy color. Mixed with dewy illuminators like the Vieve Skin Dew or Danessa Myricks Beauty Dew Wet Balm, the blush and glow duo will give that glazed finish.

Elsewhere, top makeup artist, Nam Vo, shared the rendition her rendition of glazed blush, created using Fenty’s Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush and Kevyn Aucoin’s Glass Glow Face in Pixie Dream.
