Here’s a trend that’s a breath of fresh air: Glowing skin that beams with a rosy flush. Think that healthy-skin look that comes from jogging on the beach, hiking in the woods or skiing down the slopes. Here’s how to cheat it, no outdoor activity required.
Step 1: Create glowing skin.
A fresh-faced makeup look begins with healthy-looking skin. Prep skin with your custom fit 3-Step Skin Care System, finishing with Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. This lightweight, oil-free hydrator absorbs instantly, leaving skin looking smooth, fresh and prepped for makeup.
Step 2: Liven up your lips.
The goal is to look natural, but pumped up a notch or two. Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Curvy Candy delivers a mega dose of hydration and just the right hint of glossy pink colour. You also want to keep lips sheer so that they won’t compete with your blush (that’s what can make things look clown-ish).
Step 3: Sculpt your cheeks with a rosy blush.
To create that healthy, workout-worthy flush, blend a rosy blush all the way from the outer edge of your cheekbones, across the apples and hollows of your cheeks, tapering off just before you reach your lips. Keep the colour concentrated at the centre of your cheeks and continue building up to the right intensity. Going lower on the cheek like this adds sculpted definition and the illusion of higher cheekbones. We used Cheek Pop in Pink Pop, a pressed powder that’s easily buildable without ever looking powdery.
