Blush For All

There’s nothing bashful about the standout trend of rich, flushed/bronzed cheeks– think a beautiful, wind-beaten, just-got-back-from-the-hills, “pahadi” look.

Fresh-faced models with flushed cheeks are all over the runways, and blushing has never looked so good.

For fair skin:

  1. Use a sponge to blend a reddish cream blush or lipstick from the apple of the cheek down to the jaw line.
  2. Use a buffer blush to blend patchy-spots, and complete the look.
  3. Pair with: Cherry lips and nude eyes.

For wheatish skin:

  1. Use a warm, shimmery bronze blush, smile, and apply on the apples of your cheeks, sweeping upwards (we like Lancome’s Tropiques Minerale) to bronze cheekbones.
  2. Use a buffer blush to blend patchy-spots, and complete the look.
  3. Pair with: Light-gold eye shadow, mascara, and glossy, nude lips.

 For dusky skin:

  1. Contour cheekbones by sweeping the brush in a C-shape around the apples of your cheek (as you smile), and stretch up to the temples.
  2. Use a buffer blush to blend patchy-spots, and complete the look.
  3. Pair with: Deep, red lips, and heavily mascara-ed eyes.

Tips & tricks:

  1. Use cream-based blushes for best results – these blend better, and let natural skin texture show (without looking gunky).
  2. Pick a rusty rose tone or a soft pink – these colours work well with most skin tones; deeper skin tones could go for peachy, gold, or apricot colours for a slightly sun kissed appearance.
