The buzzy Igari makeup isn’t really new though! It’s been around for some years now, although it’s gaining more attention recently. Created by the makeup artist Igari Shinobu, this makeup style is all about having that post-cocktail flush. Yup, you know how Asians turn red after some bottles of alcohol? That’s what we’re aiming for here but something a bit more polished (and sans the alcohol, of course).

How to get the Igari makeup look and what products to use

Primer and foundation

Should you wear a primer? That’s totally up to you. But there’s no denying that many makeup looks that require a radiant finish benefit from a radiance-giving base. This can be achieved with a dewy primer. As far as foundation goes, you can opt for something light and more natural.

The most important part of Igari makeup look is the blush! So it goes without saying that finding the perfect one is of utmost importance. You’re gonna want to make it look like you got a natural flush — try red instead of coral when choosing the colour. In terms of application, place the blush higher than where you would normally put it. Don’t worry about putting it under your eyes — that’s exactly where it should be. You can also try extending it to the bridge of your nose.

Issy Creme Cheek Blush


You know the drill: Accentuate the high points of your face — cheekbones, brow bone, the bridge of your nose (the tip is an option too). Make sure it’s you use something that offers a subtle shimmer instead of big specks of glitter so you look like a glistening queen rather than a disco ball!

Keep it soft in this department. Go for neutral shades for the eyeshadow and a hint of sparkle, if you please. Make sure you finish off with a couple of coats of mascara for a subtle but eye-catching look.

Lipstick or gloss

You can go two ways for the Igari makeup look: the my-lips-but-better-route or the just-bitten route. Both are amazing and look really great with the drunken blush vibe. Top it off with a gloss to amp up the glow of the look.
