This Season's Hottest Trend - Flushed Pink Cheeks
Bronzer is definitely out this season & Pink is officially the new 'it' colour, go for pretty pink flushed cheeks & you'll be right on trend! Pink has featured heavily all year & has been a very popular look but for autumn/winter it's the only way to go! Also honed & sculpted cheek bones are very hot so to achieve your flush of pink try a cream blusher to incorporate a sculpted finish. My two favourites for this are Cream Blush by Mac 'Brit Wit' & 'Posey', the first has a nice neutral rose tone that suits pretty much all skin tones. Start by applying it to the apples of your cheeks (soft fleshy part when you smile), dot it on lightly & then blend with your fingers across & just under your cheek bone, concentrate on the apple though to get that flushed youthful finish. For a bolder pink apply 'Posey' on top of 'Brit Wit' but focus it on the apple area & sofly blend it. Best blending tip is to take your middle finger & hold it slightly diagonally over your cheek & dab upwards along the cheek bone, use a make-up sponge to soften the edges to create a flawless finish. If you would prefer a powder to create your look then try out Bobbi Brown's 'Peony' a lovely pink that gives the perfect flush, just apply if with a large brush starting on the apple & blend across the cheeks.
