FLUSHED BLUSHED

Friday - - Beauty -

The days of heavy con­tour are over. Even the queen of the trend, Kim K-W, was spot­ted on the front row of Ba­len­ci­aga with­out her overly chis­elled cheek­bones in place. In its place is a flush over the cheeks. And, most in­trigu­ingly, no blusher is in­volved. On the cat­walk: Rosy glows were ev­ery­where for S/S17 and in­stead of blusher be­ing used, which can some­times look flat and ob­vi­ous, lip­stick was buffed into the cheeks to give an iri­des­cent colour. At Er­dem (be­low) make-up artist Val Garland blended Nars Kiss Me Stupid into the cheeks; Mark Car­rasquillo did ex­actly the same thing at JW An­der­son. In your life: If it’s good enough for the mod­els, then it’s good enough for us, so if you’re lighter-skinned, make sure you snap up Kiss Me Stupid, Dh150. Darker skins need a slightly punchier tone – try Nars lip­stick in Audrey, Dh150.
