This is the ‘anti-contour,’ the uncontrolled flush that tells a raw-mantic story.“There is no prescription for picking the right shade of blush, other than it’s the one that makes your whole face look brighter and fresher when you see it against your skin. You’ll have to experiment,” says Barber.“Just avoid too much red; it’ll look sore around the eyes. Apply in an upside-down triangle high on top of the cheekbones and quite near the nose. Then squeeze your blusher brush lengthways and swipe the leftover pink over the lids and under the lashes.” This we call: milkmaid in a haystack.
