Get Cheeky!

The cheek drape is similar to the Lipdrape in that you are using specially chosen colors that have different hues and seasonal residences, but this time the values and chromas differ.

In the theme of color games and finding what hue are you, we have created a cheek drape to help narrow down where your color space is further!

What is a Cheek Drape?

The cheek drape is similar to the Lipdrape in that you are using specially chosen colors that have different hues and seasonal residences, but this time the values and chromas differ.

Why should I do it if I did the Lipdrape?

Some may ask, is this really necessary I already did the lipdrape? Get Cheeky is different from the Lipdrape in that it isn’t just about the Hue and the Season it is also about the Genus of colors. Our Genus groups are split up as follows: Pure, Vivid, Early, Subtle, Deep.

When you do the cheek drape you learn which side of the color spectrum you fall on, the Light side or the Dark side. The Light side is comprised of Pure, Early, and Subtle. The Dark side is comprised of Deep and Vivid colors. This takes the lipdrape a step further.

Another difference is that the cheek drape tests colors in one additional hue as well, that of Strength. Although there are still Ambition, Creativity, and Power colors in this drape, the results may differ in that your lips have pigment to them making identifying the correct colors a more difficult task as colors that work on your arm may vary greatly on your lips. The cheek drape works as a way to confirm and build upon your original findings.

In sum, Get Cheeky is awesome and helps you find if you are on the Light side or the Dark side, as well as helps those who find identifying the correct colors on their skin to be a bit tricky.

If I get the Cheek Drape will I need to buy the Lipdrape?

Well you never need to buy anything but it would be useful to you to do the Lipdrape as well. The reason is that your lips are a bit of a facial anomaly. That is why many women that were given original generalized seasonal spaces found that some lipsticks that looked great on their seasonal comrades were not working as well for them. Your lips have a different pigment then the rest of your face and they vary greatly from woman to woman. A color that may look insanely good on your cheeks, may just seem natural and unremarkable on your lips. It won’t look horrible on your lips but it may just not be enough for you to feel like you can really rock it out. For this reason, we recommend using both the drapes if you are really interested in learning your unique color space.

Okay… but HOW do I use Get Cheeky?

The cheek drape is all about the fighting of the colors. We recommend you start with the Light side colors on your arm with q-tips.

1. Lay out the Light side sample packs in the order you will put them on your arm. You can do all eight at once or split them up.

2. Use a q-tip and take the color, creating a stripe of color on your arm that is enough to see the color and how it reacts on your skin without doing too heavy of an application.

3. After doing a stripe of color for each Light side sample, write down the colors that look best on your skin. Don’t be afraid to rate more than one as the best. Write your first, second, and third best colors.

4. Repeat steps 1-3 with the Dark side colors.

5. Take your best colors in both the Light side and the Dark side and put one color on one cheek and another on your other cheek, taking care to use a different brush for each different color (or a clean brush just make sure it is dry, you can use a blow dryer if you are impatient). We recommend using this brush or this brush or one similar to them while applying!

6. Watch the color and see how it changes on your cheek, taking care to look at your entire face to judge if one color lifts and brightens your face while the other either fades or is too harsh for your face.

7. Repeat steps 5-6 with your second favorite and third favorite.

8. After trying each color you should begin to see a theme on which side looks best on you. Pick that side, whether it be dark or light, and then battle it out with your top three choices.

9. Go to the eleablake.com/DoNotCheekPeak section for the Get Cheeky drape and discover where your favorite hangs out.
