VR Blush Makeup look
Let me tell you about an issue I used to deal with, then let me show you what I do about it now.
I used to feel self-conscious about my face after doing VR. The issue was that my blush did not look good with the redness of my HMD (head-mounted display). The combination of shapes and colors on my cheeks were constantly fighting for attention, so I decided to embrace the red line look and make my blush match its placement. Now, after I get out of VR, my blush looks fine!
This one’s a blush application that mimics the redness I get after doing a lot of physical activity in VR.
Here are the 3 steps to achieve this look:
- Know where your HMD (Head-mounted display) leaves lines
- Grab a red blush to color in where your HMD leaves your face red
- Blur and soften the edges of the blush
Watch my short (2 mins and 10 seconds) video tutorial on how I do VR blush.
You can try it out too! I’ve only tried this on myself, so your mileage may vary. I have warm undertones and light-medium combination skin. It should work for people with similar complexions. For people who have different skin types and tones, experimentation may be needed. If you try it, I hope you have fun with it!

It’s where Jen Dowding tweeted back “Officially changing my terminology from “VR Face” to “VR Blush””! Can’t get a better name than that.
