BLUSHING BEAUTY

-

YOU DON’T JUST FEEL AMAZING POST-WORKOUT; YOU look it. And while nothing tops the glow that results from a legit sweat session, you can recreate the rosiness. “Blush brings life to your face,” says David Vincent, internatio­nal makeup artist for Lise Watier. “It’s one of the best ways to make you look younger, healthier and more energized.”

If you’re fair, try a light pink blush. “It’s more complement­ary because it’s the closest natural colour that your cheeks will appear when f lushed,” he says. Juicy shades of warm apricot and cool coral are best on medium skin tones, and dark skin can bask in bold colours. “Try something with more red tones, like berry, if your skin has a cool tone or orange if your skin is on the warm side,” says Vincent.

The rule for all skin tones: Even more important than where you apply blush (the apples of the cheeks, please!) is how you apply blush. Invest in a blush brush that has a domed, slightly fluffy tip, which will excel at dusting product all over your skin. “If the hairs are too long or too stiff, you won’t achieve perfect results,” says Vincent.

Next, allow the tops of your cheekbones to say hello to highlighte­r. Pearl and champagne radiate best on fair skin, while light to deep gold shades enhance medium to dark skin. “Blush and highlighte­r make a perfect pair,” says Vincent.
