What is the 'W Blush' TikTok hack? | The Sun

BLUSH is definitely not a new invention – it has been around since ancient Egyptian times.

However, TikTok has taken the colorful beauty product and turned it into an everyday, sunkissed look.

What is the 'W Blush' TikTok hack?

The "W" blush hack is the only thing you need this summer to obtain an effortless sun kissed – or even sunburnt – look without having to ever step into the sun.

The method:

  1. Have your favorite/preferred blush handy (liquid or powder)
  2. Have your favorite/preferred brush handy or use your fingers for a more natural coverage
  3. Drag the blush in a 'W' motion from the temples, down to the apple of your cheeks and then sweep up to the middle of your nose
  4. The blush should mimic where the sun would naturally hit the features of your face
