doll face blush tutorial inspired by sabrina carpenter

how to achieve the perfect doll-faced blush inspired by sabrina carpenter

hey guys, welcome back to the subtl youtube channel! today, we're diving into a makeup look inspired by sabrina carpenter, particularly her look from the "espresso" music video. sabrina has been setting trends with her doll-faced blush, and i'm excited to give it a try. this look focuses on placing blush on the apples of the cheeks, giving a unique, girly, and doll-like appearance. without further ado, let's get into it!

foundation base

first things first, we're going to start with a foundation base. i'm using nars light reflecting foundation, mixing the shades deauville and fiji. typically, i stick to subtl beauty concealer, so it's been a while since i've used foundation. i prefer using a beauty blender for a smooth application. personally, i don't apply foundation to my nose to keep my freckles visible. a stippling brush helps smooth everything out.

fluffy brows

sabrina's look features fluffy brows, which i aim to replicate. when filling in my brows, i mimic brush strokes for a natural appearance. after filling them in, i apply some zestination coco lip balm to keep my lips hydrated throughout the makeup process.

neutral brown eyes

for the eyes, sabrina often sports a neutral brown look with a hint of pinky-purple eyeshadow. i start with the cloud nine matte color as a base, which smooths out the eyelids. for the crease, i use the latte bronzer, applying it with my favorite dual-ended eyeshadow brush. i then add the layover eyeshadow duo's purple shimmer to the outer corner and under the eyes. this combination creates a beautiful, cohesive look.

shimmery highlight

i'm excited to use the gin fizz highlighter from the new vacation collection for a shimmery, wet look. applying it with my finger ensures a concentrated highlight. i also add some shimmer from the layover and cloud nine eyeshadow duos along the waterline for extra sparkle.

concealing and defining

next, i use the subtl beauty concealer in shade 003N to clean up and define the look. i add more purple glitter underneath the eyes and a touch of gin fizz highlighter to the inner corners for an opal-like glow. sabrina's look features tight brown eyeliner on the waterline, which i replicate using the dark color in dune.

bronzer and doll-faced blush

using the latte bronzer and a fluffy brush, i apply bronzer lower on the face to make room for the blush. for the doll-faced blush, i use hibiscus highway, concentrating it on the apples of the cheeks and the nose for a contoured look. this placement creates a round, doll-like face.

final touches: lips and gloss

for the lips, i replicate sabrina's darker lip liner with a lighter center using auburn adventure and hibiscus highway. to finish, i add nyx butter gloss for a high-gloss look.

the final look

the final result is a fresh, luminescent look perfect for a date night or special event. the gin fizz highlighter provides a stunning glow that mimics sabrina's signature highlight. while this look is bold and fun, it's also incredibly feminine and girly.

i hope you enjoyed this tutorial and give the doll-faced blush trend a try. let me know what you think and if you recreate this look. don't forget to subscribe to our channel for new videos every week. thanks for watching, and see you next time!
