Blush­ing Beauty

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style -

Swirling a wet blush on to your cheek can some­times seem more cir­cus-chic than cos­met­ics con­nois­seur, but the re­sult is sur­pris­ingly so­phis­ti­cated.

“Wet use cre­ates a semi-matte ef­fect, just like a sec­ond skin. It can let the con­tour seem flaw­less, with no vis­i­ble line be­tween the high­lighted and shad­ing area,” says Priscilla Yu, lead make-up artist at NARS. “We then use it dry to pop the cheek colour, as the dry pig­ments im­part a nat­u­ral glow that warms the com­plex­ion.”

To cre­ate the per­fect can­vas, Yu rec­om­mends us­ing an oil-free mois­turiser and primer be­fore ap­ply­ing a blush, such as Burberry Lip and Cheek Bloom or Laneige K- Se­cret Cush­ion Tint.
