Peach per­fect

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - BEAUTY -

With the change in sea­son, warmer tones in your make-up can flat­ter any depth you’ve picked up in your com­plex­ion. If you find bronzer in­tim­i­dat­ing, peach blush can be a good al­ter­na­tive. It also looks more “grown up” on cheeks than pink. A sheer lip colour with a bit of shine can also bal­ance not only a smoky eye, but also a dra­matic out­fit or state­ment jew­ellery.

A foun­da­tion that’s de­signed to pro­vide nat­u­ral lu­mi­nos­ity with­out shine is a good op­tion if you’re not a fan of shim­mer. For an ex­tra-flaw­less fin­ish, try a sheer, translu­cent loose pow­der, rather than one that will add more colour.

Add blush by us­ing a large, fluffy blush brush, sweep­ing the colour up­wards (sweep­ing down­wards can in­ad­ver­tently drag your fea­tures down) from cheek­bones to­wards the hair­line.

For an easy smoky eye, add a tiny amount of a dark cream eye­shadow to your fin­ger and smudge over eye­lids, con­cen­trat­ing on the outer edges. You can add depth by go­ing over the top with a pow­der shadow (in a co-or­di­nat­ing or slightly deeper shade) ap­plied with a brush, but it’s not es­sen­tial. Add a few coats of vo­lu­mis­ing mas­cara to fin­ish.

Ap­ply lip gloss from a wand, and make sure you carry it with you for touch-ups, as it dis­ap­pears faster than other lip prod­ucts.

TIP: To make eyes pop, dab a touch of shim­mer to the in­ner cor­ners with your ring fin­ger.
